Creative musings in bright colors

Bands and Gems

I wanted something simple, festive, and slightly blingy. I also wanted to play with my new OPIs (I just won the whole Mariah Carey holiday collection! Although I’m only keeping a few. The rest are going to giveaways shortly)! Thus was born this manicure.

The base is All I Want For Christmas (is OPI). It is a beautiful red creme, opaque in two coats. However, the name is incredibly clunky! Please don’t give me polishes with names longer than 3 words. Really now?

ANYWAY. I then added french tips (and a band) with Black Satin. When that had somewhat dried, I fished out some of the beautiful holographic glitters from I Snow You Love Me (again with the freakishly long names!).

I will say, all three of these OPI polishes lasted for 4 days with NO chips. I was impressed. Then again, Snow refused to come off without tweezers! Silly glitter.

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. I like this, edgy, and different, but I still just love it! 😀

  2. OPI is pretty bad about ridiculously long titles 😀 It’s almost a signature thing by now!
