Dr.’s Remedy Summer 2011

I’m not the best with swatching since I usually get impatient and want to do a design, so of course I did a skittle version for you of the new Dr.’s Remedy Summer Collection! The colors were WOW and I can’t wait to do a design with them- really!!!

Thumb: NURTURE Nude Pink, Index Finger: LOVELY Lavender, Middle: GLEE Gold, Ring: BOLD Baby Blue, Pinkie: TRANQUIL Tangerine

I loved all of these shades but they surprised me. In the bottle I thought I’d like Tranquil Tangerine the most and while I do love it, I loved LOVELY Lavender on the nail the best. And I’m not big on purple so that’s saying something! All of these were two coats. The formula was very smooth and application went well. The only downside is that they take a bit to dry without a fast dry topcoat- but we all use one of those, don’t we!

The blue, gold and tangerine were metallics, the lavender is a creme, and the nude is a creme with a light pink shimmer, which is truly lovely. They’ll be great for my nail art and for you to wear on their own!!! Dr.’s Remedy is known for being b3f and for being vitamin and protein enriched!

 

 

Oh We Want The Funk!!!

Today is a dear friend’s birthday! You may know her as the one who responds to your OPI Facebook posts or from working with her in the past…. its CRISTA!!!!! She actually suggested I do a design from a jug yesterday and what better way to say happy birthday than to do her special design! In hindsight, I would have used Golden Rules because it’s more opaque which means I could have done more detail, but these were the colors she picked!!!

 

 

Here is the jug inspiration:

Pardon the reflection and glare- the camera did NOT want to cooperate with Glitzerland, but oh well! I used OPI Nail Envy, OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Black Onyx, OPI Glitzerland, OPI Ski Teal We Drop, OPI Yodel Me On My Cell, OPI Grape, Set, Match, and OPI Rapid Dry top coat.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRISTA! If you know her, you should DEFINITELY say a HBD to her!!!

It’s Time To Pass The Torch

I’ve sincerely enjoyed the honor of being Nicole By OPI’s Blogger Spotlight of the month and I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone involved. I felt such a warm welcome into the Spotlight because last month’s Blogger Spotlight was so kind to me and a few other people were wonderful as well- you know who you are! Cathy and I live in the same city and it’ll be nice to be able to hang out with such a cool person as her. As a result, I’d like to say thanks to her with a nail design dedicated to her blog, Poor Little It Girl. Cathy’s banner and title are a bunch of super cute sunglasses, so today I decided to do the design that Nicole By OPI used for the month of May for Cathy’s blog! I’d also like to welcome¬†in the NEW Blogger Spotlight for July- I look forward to chatting with you when you have the chance!

For this design I used OPI‘s Nail Envy as a base, two coats of (all Nicole By OPI) Pink Seriously, Razzle Dazzler, OMB!, Make Mine Lime, “Baby” Blue, I’m A Belieber, Not A Gold Bigger, You Can!, Prized Possession Purple, Scandal…Secrets & Sparkle, OPI Alpine Snow, and OPI’s Rapid Dry Top Coat.

Today is the LAST DAY to enter my Celebration Nail Art Contestto win Nicole By OPI’s Something About Spring Collection, so go forth, paint, and enter, before its too late!!!!
