Spring Time NOTD

26 Apr

I’ve been playing around with my nail art tools a lot lately. I’m finally starting to get the hang of them! Just goes to show that you don’t have to be a nail expert to make it look like you just spent some moolah in the nail salon 🙂

Colors used:
Color Club cobalt blue (not sure exactly what the name of this is. Got it in my Birchbox a while back and the sticker fell off)
Opi “Alpine Snow” for the white base
Opi “Jade is the New Black” for the leaves
Butter London “The Black Knight” for the center of the flowers.

For the eggs- Essie “Big Spender,” “Japanese Cherry Blossom,” & “Carousel Coral,” Opi “Apline Snow,” Zoya “Insta-This”

NOTD: OPI “Mod About You”

9 Jan


“Mod About You” is part of OPI’s Bright’s collection from 2008. It’s the perfect bubble gum Barbie pink. Normally I wouldn’t wear colors this bright in the winter but I couldn’t resist! This would be a great color to wear in the summer time for when you have a little bit of a tan. The formula of this color is thicker than others. It was almost completely opaque with just one coat!

NOTD: “Ruffian” Inspired Nails

4 Dec


If you’re addicted to watching youtube beauty videos like I am, you might have come across MakeupbyTiffanyD’s “Ruffian” inspired nail tutorial she posted last week.  I felt like trying something new so I thought I’d give it a go.  I have to say, I love how it turned out.  The best part is, it’s super easy!!

Colors I used- Essie’s Head Mistress & Penny Talk

You can be creative with the color combination.  I thought the red & gold would be festive for the holidays.

What do you think?

Nail of the Day: OPI Wooden Shoe Like to Know

22 Sep

Hey everyone! Today’s nail of the day is a polish from OPI’s Spring Summer 2012 Holland collection.  Wooden Shoe Like to Know is a milky chocolate brown color with a touch of fine shimmer.  This polish is perfect for fall and winter!  The shimmer isn’t as noticeable on the nails as it is in the bottle however, when it catches the light just right, it looks absolutely beautiful.


After applying the first coat, I noticed that it was a little bit streaky and sheer but the second coat quickly fixed this problem. If you’re a fan of rocking browns for fall, you’ll love this.  Overall, I’m lovin’ this color!

What do you think? =)
