Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by a City

Welcome to another edition of Twinsie Tuesday!  Today's theme is inspired by a city.  I attempted two manicures with full nail art to represent LA and they both came out terribly.  So on to plan B!  I could randomly pick a polish from my OPI drawers and I'd have a 50:50 chance that I'd end up choosing a city themed polish, so that's exactly what I did.  So now I present to you OPI Midnight in Moscow!

Midnight in Moscow was from OPI's Russian collection released in Fall 2007 (I can't believe it's been almost 10 years!).  It's a vampy coal color based polish with molten deep red shimmer.  It has that glow from within look that I love.  I believe this one is still apart of OPI's core collection, so you should be able to find it easily in stores!

This is 2 coats.

Today I have Sweet Heart Polish's Tangled Trio to show you.  This is my first time trying the brand.  It's been on my list, but my list is a mile long.  By chance we were paired together to create a purple for the upcoming Color Box (Manna's genius idea; request to join the facebook group if you haven't already!) and here we are.

The Tangled Trio is inspired by, you've guessed it, Tangled (the Disney movie)!  The trio consists of a crelly, holo, and glitter topper that comes with mickey glitter.  These will be available from Monday, March 7th at 8am PST!
