Trippy Hippy Dippy

I wanted to do a fall colors design that was unusual today. So I did! :D Its a bunch of earth colors and its meant to be a little scattered and abstract….

I started with OPI Nail Envy, then two coats of French Quarter For Your Thoughts with Alpine Snow sponged over it. I then used Road House Blues, Alpine Snow, Uh Oh Roll Down The Window, and Golden Rules for the designs. I sponged some Golden rules and as it got tacky I pushed some lines into it with a clear piece of plastic for some texture. It’s topped with Seche Vite.

 

Keep the nominations for the Palette Awards coming! I’ve already gotten to check out some truly lovely blogs and I’d love to see more! No blog is excluded from this and the more the merrier! Nominate your favorites, your own, your friends’, or ones you’ve stumbled on passing through!

Bob Barker’s The Man

I felt like doing a FUN design today so what better to do than an old game show!! Today’s design is based off of The Price is Right!

 

For this design I used all OPI, Nail Envy, Don’t Mess With OPI, Suzi Says Feng Shui, Dating A Royal, Gargantuan Green Grape, Green-wich Village, You’re Such A Kabuki Queen, What’s With The Cattitude?, The IT Color, Black Onyx, Alpine Snow, Golden Rules!, Quarter of a Cent-ury, and Seche Vite Top Coat.

 

This design is the logo of the show, the main background (green thing), the Plinko game, The Giant Wheel, the pointer on the wheel and then on the other hand is the contestants guesses for prices- 100, 2, 698, and 1 and then I gave myself a contestant name tag :)

Linear Lineup

I wanted to try out some lovely polishes that I received as gifts in a nail art design, but I don’t know if I love it or hate it. First, my dear friend Katie gave me OPI Black Satin, a vhtf (very hard to find) polish that is gorgeous. its almost a blackened gray frost but its anything but a regular frost. I wanted to see if I layered another gift, made by my friend Lori and given to me by my dear friend Jeanie would jazz it up even more… a linear holographic topcoat. It did and it came out absolutely gorgeous. But, I wasn’t done and this is where the trouble started. I wanted to try OPI’s new shade My Address Is Hollywood, but I didn’t know how to make it look nice with a gray holo, so I added OPI’s The IT Color, and both ended up covering up more of the base than I intended. Regardless, I still LOVE the base polishes and eh, I’ll take it off tomorrow and do another design. :) I hope you like it though!

 

For this design I started with OPI Natural Nail Base Coat and two coats of OPI Black Satin. I then topped with one coat of Lori’s special Spectraflair Topcoat and then did lines with OPI’s new shade My Address Is “Hollywood” and OPI’s The IT Color. Topped with Seche Vite and this is what you have!

I will be using all of these shades in the future (hopefully separately!) to give you a better idea of how gorgeous they all are. My Address is “Hollywood” isn’t just a flat creme, but as with many of the new shades in the Touring America Collection, it has a subtle shimmer that I love oh-so-much!

Thank you Katie and Jeanie!
