Mash It Up

Hi everyone!  I felt like something a little off the wall for today!


I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my index and ring fingers, two coats of Barielle Take Me Shopping on my middle finger, and two coats of KBShimmer Eclipse on my pinky finger.  I followed with one coat of SV.


For a little flash, I added one coat of KBShimmer Prism Break over Eclipse.  I also added a feather to my index finger, which was actually much darker before I applied it - which was a first for me.


I used my Vynails chevron decals on my ring finger, and added one coat of Eclipse.


For one final accent, I applied a round splattered Winstonia stud.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I love the final result.  It was so much fun to have no starting plan and to just go with the flow!


I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

OPI Sheer Tints Swatch, Review & Design

Hi everyone!  Today I have the new OPI Sheer Tints for you!  I've been so interested to try these!

OPI Sheer Tints

The Sheer Tints are tinted top coats that are much thinner than basic jelly shades.


I applied one coat of each Sheer Tint over OPI Alpine Snow.  From left to right, Be Magentale With Me, I’m Never Amberrassed, I Can Teal You Like Me, and Don’t Violet Me Down
The formulas are surprisingly thick for such sheer shades though.  They would have been much easier to work with if they had been a bit thinner.


I really wanted to have a little fun with them, so I dabbed them on over Alpine Snow randomly for a watercolor effect.

OPI Sheer Tints

For a little bit of a boost, I applied one coat of Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat.

OPI Sheer Tints

I'm still excited to see what other designs I can come up with for these, but I still really wish that they weren't so very thick.  I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Classically Chic

Hi everyone!  I squashed a major lemming recently, so I had to get it on my nails as fast as I could!  I have been dying to own Frail Promise from Emily de Molly, and I finally snagged one!  YAY!


I started off with two coats of Emily de Molly Frail Promise on my index and pinky fingers and three coats of Essie Turquoise & Caicos on my middle and ring fingers.


I paired my small dotting tool with China Glaze Neon & On & On for a subtle polka dot pattern.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I am absolutely crazy about this awesome glitter and love the way that the soft teal and pink complimented it!


I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Faintly Floral

Hi everyone!  I recently saw an awesome stamping technique on the Messy Mansion Facebook page and knew I had to try it!  It's called the lead light technique!


I started off with two coats of KBShimmer Make My Gray on my index and pinky fingers, and two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on my middle and ring fingers.  I paired Konad Special Black with Emily de Molly plate EDM05 for the full nail floral pattern.


I lightly dabbed on China Glaze Are You Jelly? on part of the petals.


I dabbed a bit more of the petals with China Glaze Isle See You Later.


I finished the petals with China Glaze Keepin' It Teal.


And finally I filled in the floral centers with Zoya Maya.  I finished with one coat of SV.


I really like this technique a lot!  The jellies let the stamping design show through really easily.


I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!!!
