Twinsie Tuesday: Non-Ring Finger Accent Nail

Hello everyone and welcome to yet another addition of Twinsie Tuesday! This week's theme was a manicure with a non-ring finger accent nail. After waffling between using my middle or pinky finger for my accent nail, I ultimately settled on my middle finger. For my color scheme, I stuck to pastels. On my accent nail, I layered Studio M Tru Passion over Essie To Buy Or Not To Buy. Then I used my favorite yellow, China Glaze Lemon Fizz on the rest of my nails.



I'm not necessarily unhappy with this combo, but I feel like the colors didn't go together quite as well as how I originally saw them in my head. I think any mani involving Lemon Fizz is at least somewhat cute by default though. It's such an adorable yellow and it's one of those colors that just makes me happy when I look at it. Plus it's a yellow us pale people can wear without looking like a jaundiced corpse! Always a plus.

Have you ever done a manicure with a non-ring finger accent nail? Either way, maybe my fellow Twinsies will give you some ideas for your next accent mani or inspire you to try one for the first time! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with!

    1. I *loved* the Little Mermaid growing up! I played with my Ariel doll so much that both her legs fell off...and even then I continued playing with her!

  6. Add me to the list of people who want Lemon Fizz! I was going to to my middle finger as an accent nail, but then figured my inner 12 year old boy would come out, if you know what I'm saying.

    1. Haha yeah, I totally thought of that. I wear all my rings on my middle finger (I guess I like the symmetry of it, I dunno) and one of my friends finally noticed this and was like, "Do you constantly flip people off or something? Is that why?"
