I really like the bright colors from this summer’s OPI Brazil collection and I keep thinking of more ways to use them in my manis. I felt like doing some stripes this time, and I added a big white flower on my accent nails. I painted my thumb, pointer, and pinky nails with OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-Go? and then I added stripes with It’s So Easy Stripe Rite in White. Then I painted my middle and ring fingernails with OPI Live.Love.Carnival and, using the brush in the bottle, painted a big flower on them with Orly White Tips. Then I put a dot of OPI I Just Can’t Cope-Acabana in the center of each one.
I have been seeing a lot of “distressed” nails on the internet this spring, and I decided to try out the look. So when I started to get some small chips and tip wear, I used my old bottle of Nicole by OPI Black Texture to add the distressed look. I wiped most of the polish off of the brush before I gently swiped it several times on my nails. The texture polish really added to the distressed look, and I was happy to find a use for an old polish that I really didn’t like or use very much. I actually really like this look, and Al liked it a lot, too! And it’s a great way to get a couple more days out of a manicure.
