Failed Camouflage Nail Art with OPI nail polishes

Morning everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. 🙂 Today I have some camouflage nail art for you – or rather, failed camo nail art. I’m not quite sure where I went wrong but the end result was still pretty, even if it wasn’t what I wanted.

I used 2 coats and no top coat OPI Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! on my thumb, pointer, and pinky fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I started off with 2 coats of OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less. Then I used My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Skull & Glossbones, Samoan Sand, and N!N!OF! to create the non-camouflage look.

Like I said, the end result is nice, just not what I wanted. What do you think of it?

Bad Bitch Polish Love Your Planet nail polish collection galaxy nail art

Press Sample buttonHi all! Earlier today I showed you the Love Your Planet collection from Bad Bitch Polish. Right now I’m going to show you galaxy print inspired nail art that I created with all Bad Bitch Polish nail polishes: Hera, Poseidon, Amethyst Andromeda, Dripping Icicles, and Tonic.

I was inspired by this print I found at fabric.com. I loved how it’s deep and mysterious and spacey wacey. LOL! P.S. If you ever need inspiration for nail art, check out fabric prints!

Pahlish Munchkinland is a pale pink base with rose gold flakes of different sizes. I layered 2 coats of this over OPI I Couldn’t Bare Less for a more pronounced white look. I dotted with Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose.

Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose is a pink holographic micro glitter with green flash/shimmer. Formula is very thick, and dries very textured. I used 3 thin coats but it took me THREE coats of top coat to get a glossy shine. I had no texture after 2 coats of top coat but no real glossy shine. :/ No bueno.

I used OPI polishes to create the black & white watermarble. Of course, my other hand came out a bit better (and of course, I didn’t take a picture of her).

I love how this turned out – it’s just kind of a funky skittlette manicure (and you know how I like those!). What are your thoughts?
