Green Bay Packers Part 2

Base colors in OPI's The "It" Color from the Mod About Brights Collection and Christmas Gone Plaid from the Gwen Stefani Holiday Collection.  I used a white striper for the tips.

The Green Bay Packer nail tattoo was done with a white base of Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.

People have been liking and viewing my original post so much lately, I thought I'd revisit it!  Hope you enjoy!!

Wedding Tips

Base color in OPI's I Love Applause from the Muppets Most Wanted Collection.  I used a white striper for the French tips and lined it with a silver glitter striper.

My nails are so long right now and perfect for beautiful and elegant French tips.  I did this design and immediately thought of how pretty this would be for a wedding!  Hope you love them! :)

Be There in a Prosecco!

Base color in OPI's Be There in a Prosecco from the Venice Collection.  I used Koala Berry from the Australia Collection and Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj Collection for the flowers.  The leaves off the side are done with My Gondola or Yours? and Gelato On My Mind also from the Venice Collection.
I saw this design on Pinterest and I wanted to recreate it because it looked so beautiful!  I hope you enjoy this cute little design. :)

Rainbow Water Marble

Base color in OPI's This Gown Needs a Crown from the Miss Universe Collection.  I used number of Color Paints including Magenta Muse, Chromatic Orange, Primarily Yellow, Landscape Artist, Turquoise Aesthetic, and Purple Perspective for the water marble design.

The Color Paints are probably the easiest colors to work with when doing water marble.. they also create the best marbling!  I think you'd agree.  :)

Pastel French Tips

Base color in OPI's Be There in a Prosecco from the Venice Collection.  For the tips, I used (in order from left to right) Suzi Shops and Island Hops from the Hawaii Collection, Gelato on my Mind and Purple Palazzo Pants also from the Venice Collection, and That's Hula-rious! from the Hawaii Collection.
Because I can't do a perfect French Tip by hand, I used tip guiders.  Sometimes you need a little help! :) Hope you like it!

Peoria Chiefs

Base color in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  I used Love Athletes in Cleats from the Fashion Plate Collection, Flit a Bit from the Summer Flutter Collection, and Need Sunglasses? from the Brights by the Dozen Collection for the fire ombre on the outer nails.  I drew black flames on top and finished the tips off with Northern Lights.

I used black acrylic paint for Homer's spots and finished that nail off with the red seams on a baseball.  I used yellow and black acrylic paint for the Chief's logo.

This year, the Peoria Chiefs (Class A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals) will be heading to the play offs for the first time since 2009.  I figured this would be a good way to support the local baseball team! :)
