Instagram Mani Swap Fun no3

Here we have a another post for a #maniswap it did with the talented Cheyenne ig @cdbnails143. She chose my Dream Catcher and Feather mani and i chose to recreate her Feathers and Paws mani so we ended up with a Native American theme.
Below is Cheyennes beautiful original

image

Here is my recreation. I found this so difficult to fit on my nails but am happy how it turned out. Deffinately not as good a Cheyenne though.

image

Below is my original that she chose to recreate.

image

Here is her recreation. I think she has done an amazing job.

Instagram Fun Twin Nails no2

Continuing with my recent Twin and Mani Swap series …
Today I have another #bestietwinnails post for you that I did with the lovely Kim ig @kimmarieex.
We chose a more simple, elegant design and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. Our inspiration came from a design by ig @newlypolished that Kim liked. 
Here is the original design that we based our nails on.

image

Here is my recreation. I had some trouble getting the design as I wanted with the stripping tape as my nails are a different shape.

image

Here is Kim’s recreation. I think she has done an amazing mani and got the pattern perfectly.

image

Here are both pictures together

image

I would like to thank Kim for joining me with this I had so much fun and love our chats over on Kik…….

Instagram Fun Twin Nails

In response to a post I put up on instagram for Mani Swaps or Twin nails here is the first #bestietwinnails post
I got together with the lovely and amazingly talented Tracie ig @mentalmoma and we decided to do a Scaled Gradient inspired by @simplynailogical as we had both been wanting to try out this technique and design. We chose our own colours and used a single chevron guide.
Here is Tracies design

image

I absolutely adore the colours she chose for the gradient and so beautifully blended.
Here is mine

image

I chose to use holographic polishes and love how they blended.
But Tracie being Tracie decided she wanted to add something to make them stand out and I’m so glad we did

image

image

As you can see we added some leopard print and i love how it turned out. Here are both pictures together
image

Thank you to Tracie doing this with me and the laughs we had along the way. Can’t wait for our Mani Swap hun

Instagram Fun with Mani Swaps

I recently put a post on instagram asking for anyone who wanted to do mani swaps or twin nails with me. I was overwhelmed with the response.
So i will be doing some regular posts on how these turned out.
First is my #maniswap with ig @brendas_nail_art_adventures
Brenda decided to recreate a recent mani I had done of dream catchers and feathers. Below is my original.

image

Below is Brendas recreation.

image

She has done such an amazing job recreating my mani, even down to the colours.
I chose to recreate her tropical sunset and palm trees mani and below is her original

image

Here below is my recreation. I loved doing this as my two fav types of nail art are gradients with black acrylic detailing

image

Here are all 4 pics together. The originals on the left and recreations on the right.

This was my first time doing a mani swap and it was great fun and I thank Brenda for joining me with this and doing such a wonderful mani xx
