Sephora by OPI – Sparkling Personality from the Betsey Johnson collection
I love waking up to find snow on the ground! Now it really feels like the holiday season in NY ! That inspired me to do a wintery design. I’m calling this mani SPARKLING LEG-WARMERS! I used two Sephora by OPI polishes- Sparkling Personality and Break A Leg-Warmer. (It’s kinda fun to name your manicures, don’t ya think?)
Sephora by OPI – Break A Leg-Warmer
I taped off my nail using little pieces of blue painters tape. It worked pretty well! If you’ve never tried it before- you should experiment with some! Its really easy to work with and peels off like a dream.
I’m groovin on the color combo- I like how the grey base color really showcases the different pigments of the glitter.
Now that I’m done beautifying myself- I might go outside and shovel. What would a mani be without a few well-earned dents and smooshes?!
Naughty~ my tips are painted with an oxblood shade of Orly called Naughty.
Nice~ my pink topcoat is a pretty little bottle of Zoya flakies called Chloe.
NAUGHTY- Orly Naughty on tips
I used the scotch tape technique for this mani. Why have I not tried transparent tape til today?? I applied it on my bare nails and it was fool-proof! The taping process took just seconds…
NICE- Zoya Chloe pink flakies
I just tore off a piece (maybe an inch long) and then placed it near my nail line. Before I pressed down hard to secure the tape… I tugged up a lil bit on the sides of the tape to make a slight curve to the line. Once my tape was pressed down nice and tight, I painted a base coat on the tips and then two coats of Naughty. I was nervous when I peeled the tape off but I got a beautiful clean line! Scotch tape- I LOVE YOU. So much easier than those tiny nail guide stickers! Then to finish it off I applied a single topcoat of Zoya Chloe.
in the shade
FYI~I ran out of Scotch brand tape and had to switch to Rite Aid invisible tape in the middle of my manicure. What a difference! The Scotch worked way better than the store brand! Who woulda thunkit?
