Not completely happy with it but enjoyed myself creating this and I am deffinately will try this design again.
Below are all 4 designs together, originals on the left and recreations on the right.
Continuing on from my previous posts in this series here is the next installment of my #bestietwinnails from instagram.
I got together with the lovely Katy ig @thepolishedpeony and we decided to recreate this gorgeous design from ig @_gems09_
Below is Katy version and i think she did an amazing job recreating this design.
Here is my version below. I love gradients and animal print ( have i told you all that before lol )and am really happy with how this turned out.
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
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.
Below is my original that she chose to recreate.
Here is her recreation. I think she has done an amazing job.
Here they all are together ….originals on the left and recreations on the right
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.
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.
Here is Kim’s recreation. I think she has done an amazing mani and got the pattern perfectly.
Here are both pictures together
I would like to thank Kim for joining me with this I had so much fun and love our chats over on Kik…….
You can find Kim and myself mainly on Instagram here http://instagram.com/kimmariex http://instagram.com/lala_lacquer

Today’s post is my #maniswap with ig @emmaelizabethxxx
Emma chose to recreate my peach and purple roses.
Below is my original mani.

I think she has done a brilliant job. The colours and detail are so accurate. She changed the placement slightly to fit better with her nail shape and i love it.
I chose to do Emmas rose mani and below is her original.
And here is my recreation of her mani
Here below are all 4 pictures together. On the left are the originals and on the right are the re reactions
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.
Below is Brendas recreation.
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
Here below is my recreation. I loved doing this as my two fav types of nail art are gradients with black acrylic detailing
Here are all 4 pics together. The originals on the left and recreations on the right.
Over at http://nailsxo.com is hosting a fun challenge world cup nail theme over on her blog.
Those of us who were interested let her know and once there was enough interest we were allocated our teams.
Mine is the Netherlands, who according to my boyfriend are not a bad team to have.
Emily will be keeping us posted on the teams progress and the person whose team wins will get a prize.
Here are my nails for the Netherlands. I decided to do a mix of their flag and tulips .
