Tendrils and Pink

My sister recently came to visit and dropped off a few small OPI trial size polishes for me to play with for a week. The first one I reached for was a beautiful deep magenta metallic polish. I can’t get enough of these metallics-with-depth!

This pink is two coats of Henna-Thing is Possible by OPI. Just beautiful. Out of the four colors I played with from this OPI set, this was my favorite! I decided to add some dots and swirls, based off a design by kimiko7878.

The pink-on-pink dots are subtle (especially in sunlight) but I thought the end result was really cool! I want to try this again with a different color palette at some point.

  1. Where did you find a sister who drops off OPI trial size polishes?

  2. What a cool sister! : ))

    I love the funky tendrils, but this polish really looks amazing, loving the swatch. !

    • thanks! metallics are probably my favorite to swatch…i love capturing the depth! holos and duochromes can be so difficult, and there is no real finesse to cremes.
