Twinsie Tuesday: Gift Mani

Hey guys!  This week's Twisnie Tuesday is another fun one.  Actually, every week is a fun one, I just particularly like the ones where we each are assigned a manicure by some one else.  This week is a 'gift mani'.  Each Twisnie was assigned another girl to 'gift' a mani to really stretch their talents.  Elizabeth from Did My Nails gave me my gift, so lets see what I was assigned!

Elizabeth told me to do an animal print mani based on a holiday season!  I decided to go with a Chrismas Zebra print.  I celebrate Christmas, so that's why I picked it.  I used Illamasqua Scorch as a base and alternated fingers with OPI Skip The Gift Wrap and OPI Die Another Day.  Both are shimmery colors, so I thought that made them more 'holiday'.  Its been a while since I've done a free hand zebra print, so this actually did stretch my talents!  It was good to practice it.  I liked the end result, but the animal print does look a bit odd in the red and green.  Haha!  What do you guys think?

As always, check out the rest of the ladies and their 'gift' post!
