Twinsie Tuesday: Odd Inspiration

This week the ladies of the Twinsie Tuesday group are creating looks based off the theme of Odd Inspiration. I had no idea what I was going to do for this look, so as I was sitting on my couch looking around my living room I saw this box of tissues and knew it was the perfect inspiration.

Photo Source: https://www.kleenex.com/EverydayTissue.aspx
And here is the look that I came up with:

Products Used:
-Rica - Whiteout
-Morgan Taylor - Mint Chocolate Chip
-Morgan Taylor - Varsity Jacket Blues
-Morgan Taylor - Gotta Have Hue
-Morgan Taylor - Funny Business
-Precision - Walking on Air
-Lacquer by Lissa - Chevron Decals

I didn't try to re-create the exact pattern but went with something "inspired by". I think that leaving it as an accent nail is fun too because the pattern doesn't become too overwhelming and gives the other colors a chance to shine as well.

I can't wait to see what the other ladies used to inspire their looks today!

Renaissance Cosmetics - Swatches & Review

Happy Monday! Today I'm going to be sharing with you 5 lovely shades from Renaissance Cosmetics.

For those who aren't familiar with Renaissance Cosmetics, it was founded in 2013 by Meghan (from Will Paint Nails for Food) and her sister Laura, in Toronto, Canada, and is now run solely by Meghan. Renaissance means "rebirth" in French, and the name suggests the transformative powers of cosmetics - the ability to use cosmetics to change one's mood and appearance. Meghan draws her inspiration from  art, design, fashion and history to make her artisan polishes both unique and classic.

Evenstar, from the Stand Alones: A shimmery glitter top coat with a predominant blue-silver mixture of glitter including a scattering of holographic shimmer.

One coat of Evenstar over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

The Danforth, from the Shimmers Collection: A deep eggplant purple with flecks of gold and pink shimmer. Full coverage in 1-2 coats.

Two coats

Runnymede, from the Shimmers Collection: A red-brown polish with a duochrome rose-gold shimmer. Full coverage in 1-2 coats.

Two coats

L'Hiver, from the Seasons Collection: A pale blue crème with golden shimmer, and tiny gold, midnight blue, white and pink glitter. Full coverage in 2-3 coats.

Two coats

Phoebe, from the Stand Alones: Orchid toned micro-glitter with flecks of purple, pink, iridescent, gold and silver micro-sized glitter in metallic and holographic finished. Can be layered or built up to full coverage (1 coat if layering, and 2-3 coats for full coverage)

Two coats

Aren't all of these shades gorgeous? I can't even pick a favorite! Each has it's own awesome qualities. The application from all of these shades was perfect, you can tell they were made by a true polish lover who takes quality of her products very seriously.
