Twinsie Tuesday: 3D Manicure

Sorry for the late Twinsie Tuesday post this week, everyone. I've been battling the virus from hell the past several days so I'm behind on everything in my schedule that isn't sleeping and popping meds.

But I've risen from the (near) grave to give this week's theme a go: 3D mani! I went with a simple idea but I think it turned out really cute. I started with this chameleon pencil topper, like the kind you get in the cheapo candy machines at the grocery store:

I love how the wonky painting on his one eye makes it look like he's totally judging you.
Next I went with a color I thought would be fairly close to the chameleon: OPI Red Lights Ahead...Where? Then I just plopped the little guy on top of the wet polish on my thumb, almost like he was trying to use it as camouflage!

Please pardon the lack of clean-up. It's not exactly the most practical mani, so I only wore it for a few minutes. The chameleon isn't an exact match for the polish, but I think the idea still comes across.
Ready for more 3D mani fun (which may or may not feature judgmental chameleons)? Check out the other TT blogs below!
