Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired By A Family Member

Hey guys.  Its time for another Twinsie Tuesday post.  This weeks theme is "Inspired By A Family Member".  I decided to be inspired by my mom.  My mom is seriously my biggest supporter and truly is my rock.  I wouldn't be have the woman I am today without her.  She does so much for me, so the least I can do is my nails for her!  Haha!  I had done her nails for a Christmas party during the season, so I decided to recreate it!  She picked out the colors and while I showed her a few things she could do with them, ultimately she picked the design too.

This is a ruffian nail design.  I really love this kind of design.  Its subtle, but depending on your color choice, can really pop!  The colors I used for this are OPI Skyfall and OPI Golden Eye.  I used Skyfall first, then I went in with a small nail art brush and did the ruffian cuticle line with Golden Eye.  Golden Eye is kind of a flaky gold so it sparkles so different depending on the angle.  I love it!  Plus what could be a better combo that deep red and gold?

As always, be sure to check out the rest of the Twinsies.  Especially the new members if you haven't yet!
