Twinsie Tuesday - Pond Mani

After our December break, the Twinsie Tuesday girls are back!! With the new year, we have welcomed three new Twinsies into the group as well!

Our first theme for the year was to create a mani using the pond technique: You put something, be it a stamp, a freehand painting of some sort, etc., over your base color, then cover that with a sheer jelly polish. You then add the same image/shape/stamp in a different spot, add another coat of the same jelly polish, so on and so forth until you're happy with it. This makes the bottom image less visible, while the topmost image is floating above. 

I went with quick and easy dots for my pond mani. I put down a coat of Barielle First Love, then added a couple rows of dots near my cuticle with Barielle Perry-Keep Winkling. I added another coat of First Love, and more periwinkle dots in the middle. One more coat of First Love, and a final few rows of dots at the tip of my nail.

This ended up looking more like gradient dots, but I really like how it turned out anyway!

Of course, don't forget to check out what everyone else in the group did this week!
