There is still time to win these GLITTAZ !
Hello lovely reader.
Welcome to the first ever international thank you celebration giveaway on addicted to OPI-yum. Later today, at 8pm pacific time, I will draw the winner of five exciting glitters!
You are invited to enter by commenting below.
I will announce the winner Monday August 8th.
I wish you all good luck and glitter today!
This manicure was inspired by Glamerous Gabby's tutorial. Her site is German, but lacquer needs no translation. This girl is a talented artist and an inspiration!
Here is a link to her tutorial.
ORLY Winter Wonderland
LA GIRL no name on label pink
Claire's nail design pen in black
Art Deco Silver Glitter striper
I bought the nail pen so I could do this manicure. I love how it turned out, the pen is great! It is better than the Sally Hansen pen, because it doesn't rub off as easy. Once topcoat is on you are fine, but when you apply the pen over dry polish it is not permanent. I forgot topcoat on my toes but the pen stayed on pretty good through a shower.
Orly Winter Wonderland is Wonder-ful. I love this gorgeous off-white shimmer. It is a glass fleck finish, and it is sheer, here I wear one coat under the artwork. It does build up nicely after three coats. I have been wanting to wear this one again since I wore it for the holidays, I remember it was a real stand-out of all my holiday polishes. A top twenty polish for me for sure.
The pink LA Girl is a realy yummy shade of creamy medium pink. I love it. It satisfied my lemming for elephantastic pink, thought I am not sure they are near to dupes, but I don't much mind either way!
Currently ordered a lot of OPI polish on ebay, including htf OPI Down to my last penny. I am on a copper jones now, must have the perfect fall copper shade. !!! I tried the Loreal copper metallic but it isn't coppery enough, it is too light, though it looks pretty.
Here is a recent mani I did with an accent nail in OPI Mad as a Hatter, the culprit in my latest nail addiction relapse. The base color here is Kleancolor sheer lilac, which is decidedly NOT sheer. It is a gorgeous pale lavender metallic. I loved these two together.
Here, I have Fingerpaints Military Green. I adore this shade. The formula was good, though it did bubble a tiny bit. I do not care, this shade is delicious. I went back and got two more from this collection, which surprised the s#i& out of me because I am all about special fx. This polish has what it takes to turn my head from the glamorous glittaz.
I also picked up Cordur-Orange and Purple Pinstripe. The swatches of these are also scrumptious. I am waiting until more fall-like weather comes to wear these, but I can't wait! Just thinking of it gives me that warm and cozy fall feeling I love.
Here are my nails of the day today (NOTD). This is three coats of OPI DS Glow, a top ten polish of mine, with three coats of WetnWild Party of Five Glitters, plus an OPI DS topcoat. This is insanely shiny, I am looking forward to the sunshine after this marine layer burns off today.
Thank you for visiting my blog and reading this far!
Another use for nail polish! I painted my plain contact lens case covers in glitter to make the case prettier.
