Teal and Lace

1

 

Here’s a quick and easy mani I did yesterday. I used OPI’s ‘Fly’ and lace stickers from The Face Shop. I haven’t used lace in a mani before and I really like the effect. Excuse my dry hands, the weather here is Seoul is brutal at the moment. Plus I never drink enough water! 2 3

Water Marble Manicure

This was first time trying to create a water marble manicure and it took quite a few tries. Basically only my OPI polishes would work. Every other brand I have didn’t spread well in the water. Some cheaper brands I own completely dissolved. So once I figured that out I was one step closer. I watched a great tutorial on youtube it was really helpful. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF4et6-rw5s

A big mistake I kept making was when I put my finger in the water then pulled it out the polish around my nail in the water would end up over my nail ruining the manicure. I started to remove the excess polish around my finger with a toothpick and that fixed that problem.

I’m really glad I didn’t give up and I learned a new technique today. Overall, I do like the effect but I will only use water marbling on an accent nail as I feel it’s too busy to put on all my nails. Also that would be a huge waste of nail polish.

Flower French Manicure!

I was in a colorful mood what can I say! I really wanted a bright multicolored manicure. Here’s what I used.

This is my flower wheel. I bought in at an online Korean store. I assumed that they were fake but actually these are real pressed flowers!

Cute aren’t they? 🙂

Here’s a close up of each of my nails.

Here’s today’s look  without the flowers.

Butterflies ‘n’ Bling

OK, where to start? This manicure is the result of me not being able to decide on a ‘look’ and instead trying to combine three different styles! Ever have one of those days where you just can’t decide what to do with your nails? Well, that was this manicure for me!

I started off with a golden glitter nail polish. It’s not a great brand to be honest. Face It is a Korean brand that I think tries to imitate the Body Shop. This polish NEVER seems to dry and chips easily. See bottom photo. I added butterflies to my thumb nail but quickly realized that wouldn’t work on all my nails so I changed to the OPI teal color.

Here’s what I used for this mani. I love love love the OPI ‘Fly’ it’s from the Nicki Minaj Spring 2012 collection. It’s PERFECT. Glides on the nail like a dream, great consistency and it’s so shiny even though it’s not a jelly polish. You could get away with one coat but I prefer two.

Here’s the original color!

 

What do you think of my mani?!!
