Creative musings in bright colors

Purple Haze

Make Him Mine by OPI from the holiday collection had been sitting in my untried collection for 2 months. I kept wanting to use it, and not coming up with any good art ideas! I stumbled upon an intriguing bit of art by Nails by Josse, and decided to adapt it to my needs!

This mani only used 4 polishes. Make Him Mine was the important one, but I found that Muse by Sinful Colors was the perfect grey-purple to match! I think I don’t give that polish enough love, so I was glad to put it to use. The last two polishes are both holographic silvers….Silver by Nabi for the base and Harp On It by Color Club just to fill in the dots.

Make Him Mine was a pleasure to work with, two thin coats did the trick and the polish went on smoothly. I love the tiny mirror glitters! All of my favorite textured polishes have the same finish: glitter with tiny mirrors. And this one is a silver lilac color that is totally unique. In some lights it is almost pewter, in others just a light purple. Silver by Nabi took 3 coats to reach opacity, but had a nice subtle holo finish that I was really enjoying.

For my accent nails, I taped off the center of the nail and saran-wrapped on Muse. I then free handed the zig zag and dots, before top coating. The last step was to add the textured lines!

Despite being mostly drab colors, this mani made me happy! Subtle glitter and cool colors. Enjoy!
