Storm Clouds and Raindrops.

It was supposed to rain all week.  Luckily, the majority of the rain was during the weekend.  The rainy forecast gave me inspiration for my next manicure.  First I started with a base coat of OPI It’s Totally Fort Worth It.

Already it’s perfect for the weather.  This shimmery gray has a holographic tone on it.  Looks purple mostly with light green undertones.

Next I taped off my nails again and painted angled tips with OPI’s Katy Perry Collection, Last Friday Night.

I waited for my tips to dry so I could tape my nails off again.  The end result…

Storm Clouds and Rain Drops Shattered

This part was a little difficult.  I only had a little part of my nail to apply the shatter too, therefore, if you want to attempt this I suggest using the shatter lightly. thick coats won’t allow for a very good shatter effect.

Happy polishing!

P.S. Look what OPI is coming out with in April and May on my wish list!!! Oh the excitement!!

Oscars 2011

Let me first start by saying, I did not watch the whole awards show.  My mom had called me over for ribs that night, I didn’t have a hard time choosing between the two.  I love me some home-cooked ribs. BUT I saw more than enough.  As far as nails go, it looks like it was a nude show.  The only one that dared to wear a bold color was the stunning host, Anne Hathaway.  

Most actresses decided to not take away from their gorgeous dresses.  I would say the best dressed was Mila Kunis.  She matched her lacy fit with a nude polish and nude clutch. Perfect.

The always adorable Amy Adams did a slightly darker nude, bordering on a tan polish.  At first glance I thought it was a pale pink, which would have been absolutely fine too. 

In this picture of Jennifer Hudson, she paired her vibrant orange gown with a light metallic.  It was a flawless match, in my opinion.

With Spring approaching nudes are a perfect answer for what shade to wear.  Here are a few colors that I can’t wait to use.  The first is a few new bottles I picked up last week.  From L-R: Sew psyched, In Stitches, and Topless & Barefoot.

These two almost look the same in the picture.  On the left we have It’s totally Fort Worth it.  It’s part of the new Texas collection from OPI.  It’s a light grey with a light holo(graphic) tone on it.  On the right is Moon over Mumbai.  It’s a a flat light grey, almost white.

A few light pinks. From L-R: Malaysian Mist, Hearts & Tarts, Bubble Bath, No Bees Please. And the last are pearls.  Pearls are always classic.  Again, L-R: Pearls Night Out, Pearl of Wisdom, and Oh So Glam.

Thats it folks.  Sorry for the long post!

Happy polishing!
