Muffin Monday! O.P.I Eurso Euro- Mixed Texture Nail Art

(**O.P.I Products provided for review consideration.**)

Hello and happy Muffin Monday!

 Look at me getting a Muffin Monday out on time!!! I won't even blab much and get straight to it! This week Muffin picked me a most amazing shade of vivid Cobalt Blue by O.P.I called Eurso Euro. This shade is from the Euro Centrale collection. I wanted to keep the look simple, but interesting. So I did a mixed texture look featuring some of O.P.I's Liquid Sand shades as well as Muffin's pretty pick. 
 For this look I started with a base of Three coats of Eurso Euro and Oy Another Polish Joke(Golden shade) by O.P.I. I LOOOVE these Two shades together. I've had a soft spot for Blue and Gold since they were my High School colors. Plus, there is something so regal about the combination. Anywho, I did my base colors and top coated them with some Seche and waited to make sure they were dry enough to move forward with the Half-moon details. For the half moons I used Get your Number and What Wizardry is This? liquid sands. I waited a good 45 minutes before photographing this look to make sure the texture polish had dried enough for there to be a good contrast between the shiny bases and the textured sand polishes.

Look at Muffin go!

 And because I also loved these polishes on their own... Here are Eurso Euro and Oy Another Polish Joke. Both were an easy Three coats of color to reach full opacity. I ran into no issues with the formulations. OAPJ was a little sheer but did well in Three coats. It can also be layered.
 What do you guys think of the mixed- texture moons? I really liked the look of the shiny and "rough" together. I'm sure this type of mani would hold up well, these textured polishes have been wearing like iron on me! I've been really enjoying this O.P.I Spring Collection. I think it's one of the best Spring collections by O.P.I in a while!

Would you try a mixed texture look?

  9. Hooray Muffin! Eurso Euro is my kind of blue. I'm not a big fan of the textured polishes, but I think they look beautiful the way you used them. :)

  10. I love, love, love this manicure! I think the mixture of textures is awesome! I've been reluctant about buying the liquid sands, but I might have to go take another look at them.
