Bestie Twin Nails! Chanel inspired with @Falguni_Nails

Hey Everyone!

Today’s mani is a Bestie Twin Nails with the adorable Falguni, from Topic Girl and @falguni_nails on Instagram!  She asked if I wanted to do a twin mani and I agreed immediately because I just love her style!  She posts the cutest outfits and manis!  We both love all things Chanel and we agreed on using the below image from Chanel Haute Couture Runway 2015 because the pattern is just so sweet and springy on the sweater!

This color combo is so fab!  The poppy color plays so nicely with the seafoam.

Here are our Bestie Twin Nails!  We thought it would be fun to not do the same exact mani but instead show our individual styles a little.  Falguni did so great at recreated the pattern on all her nails, she has such a lovely painterly style.  Since I’m not that great at freehand haha!  I cheated and only attempted the pattern on 3 nails (see my thumb below) and added a few pearl studs because I just can’t seem to do a mani without studs.

Born Pretty Store Review - Eifel Tower Nail Charm Item #16963

Hey Everyone!

Today I have a really cute Eifel Tower nail charm Item #16963 (color SH552) to review from Born Pretty Store! In case you haven’t noticed, I love nail charms hahaha It’s a little bigger and my nails are a little shorter at the moment so I place it on my thumb nail, check out my mani!

The Eifel Tower Nail Charm is all blinged out and fancy, it is so cute!  I just adore it.  It is slightly curved so it has more surface area to stick to your nail.  Since I have a pretty strong C-curve to my nails I always appreciate charms that aren’t flat as they stick better.  I just slapped this one on after a nice coat of top coat and so far it’s staying on perfectly!
