My twins look so identical I can’t even tell them apart so I rely on nail polish so I don’t mix them up

A MOTHER has told how her twin girls are so identical that she relies on nail varnish to tell them apart.

Taking to TikTok, a mum of fraternal (non-identical) twins, from the US, shared a video of her twin daughters with painted toenails.

The woman, named Lacei, then explained: “Painting two toenails on the twins so we can tell them apart.”

The caption next to the clip read: “I thought fraternal twins weren’t supposed to look identical.

We ordered ID anklets but until then we are relying on painted toenails.“

The video has since been viewed over 692,000 times and has been inundated with comments.

And it seems the confused mum wasn’t alone in her genius hack for telling her daughters apart.

Taking to the comments section, another mum-of-twins commented: “I left the id from the hospital on their feet until I saw that one of them has a birth mark on his hand.”

In response, Lacei replied: “Nice! I keep hoping to find a mole or birthmark on one of them but so far no luck.”

A second penned: “We did that, one purple and one pink,” to which Lacei replied: “Phew – this makes me feel not so alone.

“Their little hospital bracelets and anklets kept falling off and this is all we could think of!”

Meanwhile, a third noted: “I’m a twin and my mum would feed me twice because she couldn’t tell us apart.”

Another wrote: “I used Scrunchies on one of each’s foot. A pink and purple one. Now at 14 they each still use the colour-coded system of pink and purple.”

Elsewhere, a further added: “My mum did the same with my triplets sisters she didn’t trust the Bracelets anybody could change them. She stopped when they were two.”
