Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired By Your Purse

I'll admit it: I'm pretty much lost without my purse. It's got my make-up, my phone, usually some kind of snack (I almost always skip breakfast--I know, I know, it's bad)...all those little essentials that help get me through the day--to say nothing of my debit card, ID, etc. I own at least a dozen purses in all, so this week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is right up my alley: a manicure inspired by your purse!

One of my very favorites purses is my green L.A.M.B. clutch. I love the pattern and the zipper accents!

L.A.M.B. is Gwent Stefani's line and as I'm sure most of you know, she teamed up with OPI earlier this year, so I just had to use some of the Gwen Stefani polishes for this mani! Here's what I came up with:

Black: OPI 4 In The Morning
Silver: OPI Push And Shove
Gold: OPI Love. Angel. Music. Baby.
Green: China Glaze Running In Circles
Yellow: Deborah Lippmann Walking On Sunshine
Studs: OPI Over And Over A-Gwen Set

This was one of those manis where I couldn't just leave it be. I even took off some extra striping and nail studs because it was starting to look a little too busy. But after so much time adding and altering things, I finally forced myself to be done with it and leave well enough alone. The chevron could stand to be a little neater but experience has taught me that the more I try to "fix" nail art, the higher the likelihood that I'll completely ruin it and have to start over hahaha.

All in all though, I think this mani matches my purse pretty well! Hopefully the inspiration came through in the finished product. :) Be sure to see what my Twinsies cooked up to go with their bags!
