At the moment I'm wearing 'Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI?' from OPI's Spring/Summer 2012 Holland Collection, a muted grape-purple with micro-shimmer that shifts between red, orange, and pink. Unfortunately my camera doesn't seem to love this colour as much as I do, so I thought for my first few days of blogging I'd play catch-up on some of my past nails.
First I'll show you one of my Easter manis from this year. I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 'Lacey Lilac' (which I have and will post swatches of soon). After that was dry, I taped off the area I wanted to leave purple, and painted on Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 'Mint Sorbet', which is exactly the same colour as mint chocolate chip ice cream! Next, I repeated the taping and painted on OPI 'Mod About You'.
There is one coat of Seche Vite between each of the colours; I like to do this when I'm doing tape manis because it drastically shortens the wait time between steps. Impatient me!
I finished it off with one more coat of Seche Vite. I love these colours together; so spring-y!
