Now I bet you thought I was doing newspaper nails…. but I didn’t! I was talking to a wonderful woman whom I met on the OPI Facebook page who was looking for some non-traditional ideas for her wedding in six weeks. I promised her I’d do a sample of some designs for her to give her ideas of what she could get painted on the big day. So, Ginger, you said non-traditional so I sort of ran with it! Also, her wedding colors are Black, White, and Ruby Red. Don’t feel pressured to use any of them if you don’t like them. I was going for something simple enough you could do it at home if you wanted or your nail technician could do them on you as well. They’re dynamic designs- you can add details, make them simpler, switch up the colors, do the design on one nail or all five- anything you like. I would love it if you, my lovely readers, put in your two cents as well :-)
For this manicure, I started off with one coat of Color Club’s Smooth Operator. I then used Sinful Colors Black on Black, OPI Magala Wine, and China Glaze Snow to create each design. Since Ginger was on the OPI Facebook Page (and since I would have used OPI colors if I had them) you could use OPI Alpine Snow and OPI Black Onyx for the black and white if you have them. I topped off with two coats of Color Club Speedy Top Coat.
