Hi everyone! I hope you all are having a great week so far! Today I thought I'd go with the frame/border trend that has been seen out and about lately!
I started with three coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, from the new Spiderman Collection. It's a really fantastic creme polish, that may appear at first glance to be a basic white, but it actually has undertones of grey. To be frank, I love it!!!!
In both artificial lighting (above) and direct sunlight (below), it has a smooth finish and a lot of shine. I used three coats because I thought the first two coats still had a bit of a streaky finish to it. But the third time was the charm!
For the frame/border look, I placed a piece of scotch tape on my nail, just above the tip line, to achieve a crisp clean line.
I then applied an even coat of OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, which is also from the Spiderman Collection, to the centermost part of my nails. It is almost as if you were going to create a ruffian or crescent moon mani, you just avoid bringing the polish to the edges of your nails.
Just Spotted the Lizard is a fantastic green du chrome with tons of shimmer! It is also a great dupe for the highly sought after, and somewhat pricey, Chanel Peridot. I finished off with one coat of SV.
This was a lot of fun to create! It really let me test the steadiness of my hands! I hope you enjoy it!!!
