Twinsie Tuesday- Magazine inspired

Hey all,

Yeh I cheated this week. I don't really read magazines (I used to love True Crime, Master detective etc but I can't find them locally) but I am a huge fan of reading proper books. So instead of being inspired by a look in a magazine, I was inspired by a cover of a book. Close enough right? Right! I settled on Cecelia Ahern's book "The Time of my life" released in 2011.

I started off with a base coat of Catrice Lucky in Lilac. I needed 2 coats. With the older Catrice polishes I often have to go with 3 coats. I haven't tried any of the new ones so I can't say if they are any better or worse. Then I added on the swirls and dots using Barry M Teal on the pinky and index. For the middle and ring finger I picked out Catrice Goldfinger.

I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out! I am a fan of Cecelia Ahern's books and the covers are especially eye-catching. I popped in a full picture of the book cover below just so ye can ye how pretty it is :) Don't forget to check out the other twinsies posts listed down below.
