Twinsie Nails With Very Emily

Hey everyone! Today I've got a post that I've been super excited to share with you: Twinsie nails with my good friend Emily of Very Emily. Emily was one of my first blogging friends, if not the first, so it was about time we did something like this. We've been talking about doing it for a while, but as we've both had a lot on we only got around to finishing our designs last week. We decided to use marimekko flowers as inspiration for our design, specifically these nails. We found that it was really hard to coordinate on colours, as we seemed to have none of the same polishes, so we just went with what was closest to the original design. My shades are a bit lighter than Emily's but I like that it gives it an individual twist. Emily also created this gorgeous collage of our two designs together which I absolutely love. Don't you think the flowers down the side look great next to our designs? You can see Emily's design on her blog.

For my nails I used Barry M - Cotton for the white and the red is China Glaze - With Love . Then I used Models Own - Boat Party* (from the recent Polish For Tans collection) for the pink, and Barry M - Full Throttle for the orange centre. The black is MASH - black nail polish. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

Here's a close up of the flowers, I really liked how these came out. It's not my usual style of floral so I was afraid to get it wrong and my perfectionist side probably came out a bit too much! 

What do you think? Let me know in the comments. Don't forget to check our Emily's post here



  1. Thats so beautiful! Love the color combination, both manis look adorable :)

  2. Oh, both of you did such a wonderful job! You've created a cute and lovely mani, faithful to the inspiration. I love it!

    ps. You're right! the collage is indeed lovely :D

  3. Thanks so much for doing this with me Alice! Was a true honour and a pleasure. We nailed it :D <3

  4. Ooh this is a gorgeous mani and to have 2 of them is even better. I love doing twinsie nails, it's always nice to see the individual artists style come through. Love the choice of colours too.
