Twinsie Tuesday - Tulips

Happy Tuesday!  This week's prompt is tulips!  I used this mani by Newlypolished as my inspiration.  For my mani, I started with a nude base of Nails Inc. Colville Mews as the base.  Colville Mews is from the Nails Inc. spring collection, which I also used in my pastel watermarble mani.

Colville Mews is nearly a one coater and a gorgeous nude for my skintone.  I then used acrylic paint to paint the tulips on each nail.  I started with the lighter pink and purple for the base and then went back and did the detail work with the darker shades of pink and purple.  I then layered a coat of Seche over top to finish everything off.

I received so many compliments at work on these nails.  Everyone thought they were decals and didn't believe me that I painted them myself.  I really need to remember to do more acrylic work since I love how it turns out, especially since my fiance got me a huge assorted package of acrylic paints for Christmas...that I finally just broke into to do this mani...  Be sure to check out the tulip manis from the other Twinsies below!
