I'm sorry this has been such a quiet week around here. I'm just starting to feel slightly better from that nasty little cold I caught. It could not have come at a worse time. I was supposed to be packing up stuff for our move this Saturday. LTHP and husband will be relocating to the South East coast of Florida. However, it is not a huuuuge move as we are only relocating from Sarasota, FL; from coast to coast... exciting stuff...
Anyhow, I wanted to check in and share these looks I've worn recently. I've been slacking some this past week since I was so sick... But, my nails were looking FAAAAAB! Sometimes I really dig manis that are really simple, with just a hint of something sparkly to make it special.
This first look is just a simple sparkling gradient with Nicole by O.P.I Sweet Surrender as the base color and Fab is my Middle Name sponged on the tips for a sparkling gradient look. Both of these shades are part of the Nicole by O.P.I 2014 core line expansion. Sweet Surrender is a beautiful mily off White. The formula is nice, very smooth and surprisingly opaque. I used two coats of this color. Fab is my Middle Name is a re-release. This glitter was originally created for the core line back in Spring of 2012 [original review can be found here]. I finished this look off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
One can never really go wrong with a nice chunky glitter, now can they? These two pretties also come from the Nicole by O.P.I 2014 Core expansion. The awesome diamond- shaped topper is called Be Awesome. It definitely lives up to its name. This glitter is just so much fun. The diamonds are Pink, Blue and Coppery shifters. There was no fishing or troubles with the pieces. What you see was completely random :D. A video on my glitter application technique can be found [HERE]. Finished off with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
Last but not least is this Nudey- with- a- pop- of- Teal cloudy look. These shade also come from the same collection. The base color is Nicole by O.P.I That's Putting it Mild. I only needed two coats of this beautiful Almond toned creme. For my pop of Teal I used Emerald Empowered which is a beautiful shade of shimmery metallic.... TEAL. Definitely not Emerald. Still gorg though. The final cloud is Nicole by O.P.I Taupe of my Class. Which is your classic shade of brown-tone Taupe-y goodness. I finished these off with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
