Not only do I spend a lot of my time working on my blog, but I also read a ton of other blogs! And what’s a giant reward for all that time spent? WINNING GIVEAWAYS!
I was lucky enough to recently win a set of mini Sheer Tints by OPI from Polished PR. Thanks Jenn! I was super-psyched when I found out that I won (I also got a new Gwen Stefani kit) because I loved loved loved the idea of the sheer tints- they seem perfect for a nail art addict like me. So here’s what I came up with using my mini tints!
I started with a Sally Hansen base coat, two coats of white Zoya Purity, then I applied the color-tinted top coats in a rainbow design. I used the little bottle brush from the mini bottle (no special tools) and did one swipe of each color. I like where the teal and purple overlap to make a nice blue-ish purple hue.
These sheer tints are fun and the options are endless. I wonder if OPI plans to make more shades!?! Has anyone heard any rumors about that ?
This is my St.Patty’s design for the N.A.I.L. Linkup! I loved brainstorming about which green polishes to incorporate into this design to make it look Irish. I freakin love green nail polish. Here’s what I’m wearing: The dark green is Zoya Ivanka. I’ve only worn it once before so I was happy to try it out again. What a gorgeous foil green!
The light green is a new AVON quick dry polish that I ordered from my avon lady called Don’t Be Jaded. It was in the outlet catalog for $1.99! Like seriously! My mom picked up a bottle too and she texted me a cute nail pic this AM (it was her jade green nails with a sudoku game as her backgrdrop) LOL. Her text said that she painted her nails with Don’t be Jaded on thursday. Today is sunday and it’s still holding up. Yes, this is why we love AVON. And green is my mom’s fave nail polish color too so we be happy!
Do you like my giant gold glitters on my thumb and pinky? They kinda remind me of gold coins at the end of the rainbow. It’s OPI’s When Monkeys Fly! which I dabbed on and also had to pick and place some of the glitters too.I also did a rainbow dotted nail using a dotting tool and a bunch of random polishes. Then I placed some gold studs on my Zoya fingers, added some seche vite, and now I have a fun mix mani for St. Patrick’s Day! It was relatively quick and easy.
I’d love to see your St Patrick’s mani too. Here are the inlinkz so you can enter a N.A.I.L. pic for March-
