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?

OPI Significant Other Color + Different Dimension Ursa Minor manicure

OPI Significant Other Color is a polish I picked up from TJMaxx. In the bottle it is a pretty purple-pink, on the nail it shifts from mauve to red to gold to green. Continue reading

Black + White Watermarble with Pahlish Munchkinland + Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose

Hello, hello, my dear lovely readers. 🙂 I hope that your weekend was absolutely amazing. 😀 Today I have a manicure to show you with Pahlish Munchkinland and Fancy Gloss Pixie Rose and a black/white watermarble.

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?

OPI Samoan Sand + Make Light of the Situation layered manicure

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! Happy Saturday to you 🙂 I’m skating in late in the week with the OPI Mad Love color of the week which is nude/neutral this week. In this week’s life update, I also want to talk about an upsetting situation that happened to me this week and the importance of being kind.

I started off with 2 coats and no top coat of OPI Samoan Sand. This is fairly sheer, but does self-level nicely. Continue reading

Fan Brush Gradient with OPI polishes

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! Just dropping in with a quick post about my current mani. This week the OPI Mad Love fb group’s color of the week is pink and yes it took me all week to be able to sit down and create a mani! (More on why at the life update at the end of this post.) I used all OPI polishes: Mod About You, Suzi Shops & Island Hops, Suzi’s Hungary Again, Charged Up Cherry, My Throne for a Cranberry Scone, and DS Sapphire.

OPI Mod About You | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with 2 coats and no top coat of Mod About You (black label). This is a very pale pink-white polish. Formula was uneven but gah, I love the old OPI black label polishes! There’s something about the way they smell…yes I am a freak. 😛  Continue reading

Dry Brush nail art with OPI nail polishes

Purchased by Me buttonHi everyone! I’m back again with another nail art look for OPI Mad Love’s color of the week, which is yellow and/or gold. Now, yellow isn’t really my favorite nail polish color – I looked in my melmers and I had 4 gold OPI polishes and 2 yellow OPI polishes. Not exactly swimming in this color family, if you feel me. 😛 Also, my ring finger on BOTH hands got split all the way down so I am rocking the total nub life on those fingers. Why yes, I am irritated about that! Anyway, check out my nail art below and afterwards I’ll give you a mid-week check in! (oh P.S. Go check out this nail art guest post I created for Dina at Secretary’s Nail Art!)

Hello, Be Happy and Buy Polish readers! I’m Stacie from wacie.com and I’m your guest poster today. I have a black and silver skittle mani that I hope you’ll like. For this look, I used Digital Nails‘s Pandorica (black holo) and Wow (silver holo), Sally Hansen’s Black Out (black creme), OPI’s Push and Shove (silver foil), and Indigo Bananas‘s Moonlight (Clair de Lune) (silver flakies). I used top coat on every nail but the middle one. All photos were taken in direct sunlight.
