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!!!

He Sure Plays A Mean Pinball

The other day one of my favorite “The Who” songs, Pinball Wizard came on the radio when I didn’t have my ipod on me. Then, last night, I stumbled upon an AMAZING free game app called Retro Pinball, so I decided that today we’d have a pinball design!!!

For this design, I started with a coat of OPI Nail Envy, two coats of Nicole By OPIBaby Blue, Nicole By OPI Turquoise Texture (I was trying to replicate the cracking in the image below), OPI Alpine Snow, Nicole By OPI Red-y To Runaway Love?, Nicole By OPI Razzle Dazzler, Nicole By OPI You Can!, Nicole By OPI I’m A Belieber, Nicole By OPI One Time Lime, Nicole By OPI Daffy Dill, Nicole By OPI One Voice, Nicole By OPI Give Me The 1st Dance, Nicole By OPI Party In The Penthouse, Nicole By OPI Fresh Squeezed, and a top coat of OPI Rapid Dry.

Here’s the pinball image that I used as inspiration- so much detail it was hard to choose what to include!! Click on the image care of Windows Secrets for the path to the original image.
BY THE WAY!!! Have you entered my NAIL ART CONTEST! To win all of Nicole By OPI’s Something About Spring Collection? You have until the end of June (aka any designs before the clock strikes midnight onto July 1st EDT will be accepted). Please read the original post for details! I have received SO many designs- it will be hard to choose who wins!!!

AND! Rafik did another design for all of you as well! If you haven’t been following long, Rafik is my fiance and occasionally he tries his hand at nail art. The conversation usually goes like this, (Rafik) “Nail art is easy, I could do that design better” (Me) “Oh? Have a go then” (5 minutes and some paint later) (Rafik) “Okay I’m done! Look at my masterpiece! I don’t have the patience for this!”
Needless to say, his designs warm my heart and I love to show you all that he does nail art on me sometimes :)

The colors? OPI Alpine Snow, Nicole By OPI One Time Lime, Nicole By OPI My Lifesaver, and Nicole By OPI Baby Blue. I think he did a great job!

On The Tip of The Tongue

You know that feeling when you can’t think of a word, and it’s on the tip of your tongue and it drives you insane? That’s how I felt today and on all of the days where I’m feeling uninspired. I so desperately wanted to do a wicked detailed design but the inspiration was just out of my mind’s grasp. So, until I think of something better (who knows, you might get two designs today because the one I have on is aggravating me every time I look down and think of what I wanted to do) this design will have to do :) It’s not that I don’t like it, because I do, and sometimes doing a clean and crisp simple design is even harder than doing a detailed one, its just…. not what I wanted for today. Oh well, maybe I’ll go on a walk and get inspired after posting.

For this design I used OPI Nail Envy and Rapid Dry Top Coat and then all Nicole By OPI: Razzle Dazzler, The Right Thing, Once Voice, You’re A Star, Fresh Squeezed, Deeply In Love, Baby Blue, Iceberg Lotus, Too Rich For You, Dandy Lion, The Next CEO, OMB!, and I’m A Pool For Love. I also use a tiny bit of OPI Alpine Snow for the black nail. Like I said, pretty but not what I wanted…. even still, would you wear something like this at all or no?

Don’t forget about my nail art contest! :P
