Twinsie Tuesday - Inspired by Your Favorite Mug

Hi everyone! Today's Twinsie Tuesday inspiration is my favorite mug.  I have no idea where it came from (my mom bought them for me), but it's definitely my go to for everything, especially hot chocolate and chai tea.  I'm not much of a coffee drinker unless it's in my frapuccino, ice cream, or tiramisu.

For these nails I used the fan brush technique.  For the colors I used China Glaze At Vase Value (I forgot how much this formula sucked!), Essie Greenport, and Elevation Polish Thunder Basin (which came out looking black, but I swear it's brown!).  I love my mug, but this look did not translate AT ALL.  I wanted to incorporate the brown rim in my mani, as well as the random brown dots.  I should have left that out, but I'll definitely try the fan brush mani again soon!  In the mean time, don't laugh!

**Elevation Polish Thunder Basin was sent for an honest review.

Check out the other Twinsie's posts! Hopefully they did better than me!
