Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday--A Girl and Her Polish

Hi Readers! Today I have another installment in the super fun and fab Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday!!!  Honestly it's really hard to pick just one mani you've seen out there in blogger land or youtube or just the internet in general.  When I saw this one though I loved it!  Here's the mani I chose to do for today
I had to do some fast thinking with this one readers because Katee used both Gouda Gouda Two Shoes and Wooden Shoe You Like To Know by OPI and I only bought Wooden Shoe.  So I decided to franken a little Gouda lol.  I honestly would have never thought to put these two colors together but I love how it looks!
There's a little hidden shimmer buried in Wooden Shoe Like To Know and I know it's there in Gouda Gouda Two Shoes as well.  I think I'm going to have to get Gouda after all!
I love mani's like this simple in application and design but such a knockout on the nails
Please check out the Katee's original mani here and check out the comparison shots.  First up Katee's
And here's mine
WOW after seeing them one on top of each other my franken is not close to Gouda Gouda Two Shoes at all!  I REALLY need it now lol!  

My friend Stephanie who isn't blogging yet did a great mani I wanted to share with everyone too!  She got her idea from Lindsey at Neverland Nail Blog.
Check out Lindsey's mani here

  1. Nice design, you both did a great job!

    1. Thanks Cathy, I really love this design and have plans to use it again with some more color combinations

  2. Hi¡¡ I love your nail art, sincerely I prefer your interpretation because I love pink more than browns in the original. Plus, I think that choice make more brilliant and perfect for spring

  3. Pretty! I makes me think of buttons on old timey gangster shoes. I think their called spats. :)

    1. Steph I thought the same thing when I saw this mani at first!!!

  4. Wow, super great job Laurie! Almost an exact match!

  5. Uhh quite equal! :D I like them very much :)**

  6. Thanks ladies! I am having so much fun with these Monkey See Monkey Dos!

  7. Yay!! I'm famous!! :P I showed my Hubs your comment last night and asked if he'd laugh at me if I started blogging. He said yes. He'd support me, but still laugh at me. It's good to have a supportive husband....I think.

  8. Just saw this on google! Yours looks great and I love the color combo you used! :)
