Mani Swap!

I'm super excited to share my first ever mani swap with you guys!
I've never done one before but they've always looked fun, so I was ecstatic when Robin of Roaringnails agreed to do this swap with me!

We teamed up to recreate each other's designs; she chose to recreate my Naughty Nautical design and I chose to recreate her awesome leopard print design!

I think they both turned out really well and as Robin and I were discussing, it's really cool to see our designs on each other's nails!

I absolutely love Robin's recreation; everything is so spot on, even the base colour since she has the same polish!

I tried to live up to hers, but I must admit my colours are a little bit off. The pink/red is actually less off than it seems in the photos, it's a lot pinker than it looks; I just couldn't get it to photograph properly.

I loved having Robin's design on my nails though! It's a design that I probably wouldn't have come up with myself (I seem to be pretty fixated on painting objects or themes as opposed to patterns; I need to expand my repertoire to include that at some point) so it was fun having such a cute pattern on my nails!

Thanks again to Robin for agreeing to do this swap with me; it was so much fun and you're such a lovely person!
