Oh yes, I took it there. I do love a subtle homage. When it came time for my next nail art manicure, I took inspiration from the original Viniq Shimmery Liqueur. I pulled up a photo of the bottle, rather than bring one in.
Me: I want my nails to look just like the swirls in this drink. *shows photo*
Nail artist: Text me that! What drink is this?!! Is purple your favorite color?
Me: GIRL! It’s Viniq, it’s a fusion of vodka and moscato and it comes in all these different flavors. This is the OG original. They all shimmer. Purple is my favorite color and I want my nails to have the same shimmery vibe.
Nail artist: Ok, I need to try that. Say no more, I got you.
Below you can see the final product, along with a little of the process from Snapchat.
I think the Viniq is outshining me. Can you believe it shines like that. No photoshop, just really great captures. Which is why I’m going OD on these images haha. I should have done jewels on every finger, but I think we did a good job emulating the shimmery swirl. Another nail artist came into the shop and said my nails looked like a galaxy. That’s exactly what the original flavor of Viniq looks like to me. It’s really subtle and a good conversation starter which inevitably leads to everyone wanting to try Viniq. Looks like I need to get these cocktails poppin.
P.S. In case you’re wondering. In the first picture, I’m sipping on Viniq in my go-to way. That’s mixed with a little New Amsterdam vodka and a splash of lime juice. Check out some of my other Viniq posts for recipe options.
