Sephora by O.P.I My Personal Serpent and Havana Dreams Drip Mani and My very First Tutorial

Hi lovelies!!

  Today I have a post full of firsts!! I received this pretty $OPI colors from a micro swap I did with one of my Facebook friends. Today I have my very first "drip mani" and I did a tutorial to go along with this post. It's not a great tutorial but I was so excited to start playing around and practicing and such that I just went for it with what I had available for recording lool! I have a tutorial for this look up on You Tube.
 I cannot believe I forgot to take a swatch pic of My Personal Serpent which is the dark Teal color I am holding and wearing as my base. My Personal Serpent is a dark Teal creme and a true ONE coater.  For the drip effect I used Havana Dreams and to top it all off I used a thin coat of INM Northern Lights. I really loved working on this mani because this is such an easy technique and just fun to work on. Later on I should have a Tutorial on this look. :)


What are your thoughts on my drip mani? Have you checked out my giveaway yet?

  4. I love this. I have only seen one drip mani before. It was done with red and white and I didn't like it. Now I see it was only due to the colors. I really like the technique with these shades and would totally try this - like the part where you said it's easy. Too funny. I would have thought until you told us,that the base shade was the opposite of what you told us just looking at it. Very excited to see the tutorial now.

  12. Oooh, that came out a lot better than mine did, I think the key is the dotting tool! I used my actual nail polish brush to drag my polish and I don't think it came out as neat as yours did. I love this color combo as well!

    I am excited to try this style out. I actually work at a paint store, so I am also a big fan of colors and paint drips and splats and all that.
