Orly Sunset Strip Collection Holiday 2016

orly-sunset-strip-collection-holiday-2016

I’m already moving right along to my first Holiday 2016 nail polish collection, starting off with Orly Sunset Strip Collection.  At first look this collection might appear a bit hum drum, but once you dig in you’ll notice a careful curation of colors and finishes. I give it a big thumbs up as a nicely cohesive collection with multi-religion flare mixed in, read on for all the swatches (and my doggie makes a cameo too).  View Full Post

OPI Starlight Collection Nail Art

OPI Starlight & Preen.MeI’m back with all my OPI Starlight Collection Nail Art! You can check out the individual swatches in last week’s post. I tried a few different things out including this from a couple of weeks ago. And here we go!

OPI Ro-man-ce On the Moon and Guys & Galaxie Nail Art

I’ll start with  my favorite nail art. I made the ever-so-light (and almost fail) gradient with OPI Guys & Galaxies and OPI Ro-man-ce On the Moon. It looks like shading, but it’s actually the gradient.

The rhinestone’s didn’t last though, which is a bummer. I have a hard time with those little bits. The vinyls I used for this look are from that super cheap ten-pack variety set on Amazon (Fringe Guides??). I’m using them up, but the are quite inferior to the standard nail vinyls out there.OPI No More Mr. Night Sky Nail Art

Here’s a nutty one with OPI No More Mr. Night Sky as a base stamped with OPI Is This Star Taken? as well as a white stamping polish (specifically Konad Special White Stamping Polish). I can’t recall where I pulled this image from, but I’m pretty sure I used a stamping plate from my ultra cheap Shany 30 piece stamping set (from Amazon). I think it was $10 for 30 plates. The designs are small but they do fit my fingers and is really worth it to build up your stamping collection if you are short on cash. I think you can order the 100 pack for a few more dollars (really).  
OPI Is This Star Taken Nail Art

Here’s OPI Cel-less-tial Is More sponged over OPI Is This Star Taken? Not so much. I’m not a fan of how this worked out, but it’s nice enough. The glitter is highly texturized which is odd. Eek, what a bad picture of my odd-man-out rounded pointy finger! That nail gets ground naturally down every.single.day. I have to file it flat every.single.day (and most of my other nails, but that one is the worst!) which gets old after awhile. Does anyone else’s nails file away naturally as much as mine?!

OPI Ro-man-ce On The Moon Nail Art

Loved this one though! OPI Is This Star Taken? stamped over OPI Ro-man-ce On The Moon. The lips were perfect to go with this romantic red polish. This is another Shany plate.
