It’s day 20 of the nail art challenge for April and the theme is border manicure! When I think about border manis I think, “what two colors work well together?”… and most times I think out loud. So my man suggested purple and yellow. Well, I have a two-pack of Nicole by OPI polishes with those exact two colors! How perfect is that?
I can think of a lot of young girls that would love this manicure. WHY? Because these Nicole by OPI shades are inspired by Justin Bieber! I’m a Belieber is a nice basic purple cream (Bieber’s favorite color is purple) and the yellow is called My Favorite Gold. I’ve swatched My Favorite Gold before- here’s the post. It’s a beautiful and bright gold color, but it needs a lot of coats (and preferably some undies too)!! Next time I try a border mani I will use more opaque colors. I’m a little embarrassed to say how many coats I’m wearing here! Even still, I love the final result and how the purple really stands out against the gold. I think Justin Bieber would be proud! 😀

oops FOUR…. but you know what I meant!
Pretty! I think this is the first time I’ve seen a border mani and not thought it looked weird.
Your meme is so cute! She looks so happy about buying all the nail polishes!!!
Thank you! That’s how I feel inside whenever I’m standing in the cosmetics aisle XD
Wow! how did you get the border so perfect?
I did the yellow first. Then I painted the purple on top of it… but pretended my nails were smaller, so I made sure the purple paint didn’t reach the top or sides of my nail. Then I went over my tips with more of my yellow color. I found that it was pretty easy that way and it made clean lines. Thanks for checkin it out!
