Hey everyone!! I have an event tomorrow night, so ... you guessed it! Time to match the mani to the dress!! I have a million things to do tomorrow, so I wanted to be sure my nails were ready!!
I started off with two coats of OPI The Spy Who Loved Me, a rich red shimmer with flashes of gold. It is absolutely my new favorite red. It's such a gorgeous color!!
Next, I grabbed a paper plate and placed one thick stripe of OPI The Spy Who Loved Me, another thick stripe of OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest just below it, and finally a thick stripe of Zoya Suri below that one. I used a dotting tool to swirl the lines where the colors met to blend the shades a bit.
After taping off my fingers to cut down messy clean up time, I used a basic cosmetic wedge sponge and pressed it flat against the polish on the plate. (I only pressed it down once.)
I then pressed the sponge against my nail, making sure it covered it entirely. I then removed it from my nail, and dabbed a few more times to ensure proper color transfer. I repeated these steps for each nail, and then followed with one coat of SV.
It really has a great shimmer out in the sun as well!!!
As always, here is the final mani with the dress, which is a fab little Ralph Lauren. I almost added a little design in black to completely match, but I honestly couldn't bring myself to cover up any part of the gradient.
I am so happy with the end result! The colors match the dress so perfectly!
I hope you enjoy it as well!
