Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
I love OPI. After all “The It Color” is featured in my Amor de Lacquer banner. But I don’t dabble into OPI as much as I used to so I’ve been catching up these day. But wait…when was the last time you visited their website? I may be late but I love the swatches features.
You can choose any color, choose your skin tone and desired nail length. I spent a good 20 minutes playing around on that site. #dontjudgeme And how awesome is this trio?
I first ran into Jade is the New Black from the Hong Kong Collection when I got a manicure in NYC for my meet and greet with Iman. I just recently picked it up a few weeks ago and I absolutely love it.
I don’t own a green like this. I love how dusty it is. And I get the most professional looking nails when I used OPI polishes. That pro-wide brush is the bomb diggity!
I love that not so close to the cuticles look but it’s so hard to achieve–except when I’m using OPI.
And then there’s Suzi Says Feng Shui also from the Hong Kong Collection.
My camera makes it look cooler than what it is. It is actually a dustier blue with a tinge of gray. I wanted to have some fun with these kids so I decided to use Fiercely Fiona from the Shrek 3 Collection to play around with some water marbling.
Two nails later and I decided it wasn’t for me.
I’ve tried with several brands, colors and finishes and I just suck at water marbling. iFail at it. I am clearly no Colette and I can live with that. Konad and freehand on the other hand….
…are a little bit more up my alley. I’ve never used this design before but I am lovin’ it!
If I weren’t so lazy I would konad my nails more often. But I can honestly say I’m done with water marbling. I just can’t seem to get it right.
What was your last OPI haul? Whatcha think about the Shrek 3 collection?
