Bestie Twin Nails!

Hey everyone! 
My current mani is a collaboration between one of my good friends Jessie over at Nails Of Jessie K and I based on a theme that's going around Instagram! It was started by the lovely Vanessa (aka @mrslochness) and her best friend Vee (@veebutterfly). There isn't really a specific way to do this, you can make them as similar or original as you like, but Jessie and I decided to go for a general theme of chevron, dots, glitter, and gradient (of course) and the colors teal and deep purple, then surprise each other with the final result!

Here's what we came up with:)

Mine: I did a glitter gradient on my index finger using Julep "Marion" and OPI "Pirouette My Whistle," a vertical gradient on my middle finger using Julep "Marion" and "Morgan," freehand chevron on my ring finger with "Morgan" and Essie "No Place Like Chrome," and some simple dots on my pinky.

Jessie's: I'm not sure of all the details for this one, but I know the pretty teal glitter is Happy Hands Nail Polish "For British Eyes Only" and the purple is also Julep "Morgan." And she's the queen of chevron with her fancy scissors and tape;) 

And here's a "collage" of our nails together! :)

  1. Aaaw, Yay! Similar blogging too! ;) <3

  2. I really love your vertical gradient! So lovely!

  3. I order my first julep maven box after looking at the blog...overall how do you feel about the overall quality of the nail polish? and I am confused is it a monthly box that they send to you or you select to buy it each month???

    1. I really like the polish so far, I haven't had any problems with any of them. :) and they automatically send a box each month unless you "skip" that month. You can also change your Maven profile to customize your box.

    2. Thanks for the info. I teach sixth grade and my girls and I are going to have a nail polish club and your designs are inspiring all of us.

    3. Oh my gosh that's so sweet! I'm so flattered:) Thank you!

  4. What a cool idea! And two very cool manicures :D

  5. So jealous of your freehanding skills! Looks really cool.
