EXPECTO PATRONUM!!

Today is the day! I get to see the last Harry Potter movie! So of course I had to do another movie themed manicure.

Again I used all OPI colors.

For a base color I used OPI Curry Up Don’t Be Late.

For my accent nails I used one coat of OPI Spark de Triomphe for a little “magical” effect and using OPI Black Onyx, I painted an “H” and a “P” and a lightning bolt. It wasn’t easy. I did have to practice it a couple of times on a sheet of paper. But hey, practice makes perfect, sort of. =)

Then using a few strips of tape and OPI Ali’s Big Break, I striped my nails the colors of the Gryffindor house. The stars are sequins that my sister got for me from a flea market. You can find more products like these for you nails on facebook.com/imagicnails.

That’s pretty much it. I hope I didn’t miss anything. Here are a couple more pictures of the final product.

Happy polishing!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

In the spirit of the holiday I decked my nails in green and gold. The green I used was Jade is The New Black and the gold was from OPI’s India collection, Curry Up Don’t Be Late!

I thought about doing something a little fancier, but I painted my nails as quickly as I could and ran out the door for work.  Thanks to OPI Drip Dry, they dried quickly and I was out the door to work without messing it up!

OPI has a great collection of greens.  Here are some that I have in my collection.

OPI Who The Shrek Are You!

Love this color by OPI.  Its super bright and fun. It is more of a yellow-green that is perfect for spring and looks great with OPI Black Shatter.

OPI Green-Wich Village

 

Another bright green is Green-Wich Village This also looks great under Black Shatter. Here are some swatches. 

OPI Here Today...Aragon Tomorrow

My last is this dark, dark green.  I have been eyeing this one for a while. I finally had the guts to just buy it, but I had to…Because if it was there today…it would have been “Aragon” tomorrow, literally…(Lame, I know). Anyways, no special occasion necessary to wear this one.  Love it.

That’s all today. Happy St. Patty’s Day everyone! Have fun and be safe!

Happy polishing!
