Nail Polish Love
I love finding a new nail polish that I can obsess over. There was a time I literally re-painted my nails three times just because I couldn't settle on a color! But now I have that under control... and I am obsessing over one color at a time! Last night while getting my nails done I decided to try something different. Lately, I have been reaching for purples and matte colors but I went for a sparkly magenta color; OPI Designer Collection, DS Extravagance. I only put it on my toes considering my fear of coming off as a Barbie wanna-be but I love it! And I would now make the decision to also paint my finger nails with it. Here's what it looks like:
The polish blends the color with the glitter really nicely. So I am excited to try all the other pretty colors in the collection!
Idea for brides: Wear the sparkly blue on your toes for your wedding as your "something blue"
Not only do I love finding the new "in" color but I also love finding cool ways to do your nails! Thanks Pinterest for opening me up to all kinds of pretty nail art! My faves (click the picture & see it from the Pinterest source!):
Pretty gold splattered nails! Are you from Pittsburgh? Splatter gold over black for your next tailgate party maybe?!
I'm obsessed with chevron, for everything. So, of course I am going to love it on nails. I attempted this, and as I am no nail artist, it didn't turn out perfectly but I was also really impatient with it. I still love this and am planning on doing this to two nails on each hand in the near future!
I LOVE this look, and I was capable of doing a pretty good job at it! It's pretty and sparkly without being "Barbie", which is a look I always aim for. You have to be patient and let the bottom coat dry but it lasts a little longer than just a color because of all the layers!
This is one of my favorite looks. But like most things on Pinterest, I haven't gotten around to trying it... I think it's cool and different. I even like the base color, it looks just like newspaper!
