I cut my nails. I have 'lil nubs again. They will grow out soon enough though. I don't really mind having short nails. I can type faster with them! I am wearing two coats of OPI Ink under Funky Fingers- Gold Scales. OPI Ink is from the Brights collection. I'm not sure which year it was released, but I believe it is part of OPI's permanent collection. It's a blue-based dark purple shimmer. OPI Ink can be worn year-round in my opinion. Funky Fingers-Gold Scales is just your typical gold crackle finish. It actually looks very similar to OPI- Gold Shatter. It shattered pretty well, but it covered up a lot of OPI Ink.
Here it is without the flash. I just love shatters! I know some say that the shatter trend has passed, but I'm still a fan :) I'm also excited to embrace some of the new trends such as flakies and magnetic polishes.
I took a picture of OPI Ink before I topped it off with shatter. This is before I cleaned up. I also smudged my pinky, but I later touched it up and topped it with shatter. One thing I like about using shatter is that if you mess up a nail before applying it, all you have to do is touch it up with the base color instead of having to redo the whole nail. Shatter has a bumpy texture anyway, and you can't even tell there was a mistake.
I received some epic nail mail also! Traci from The TraceFace Philes had another blog sale with some old OPI's, and I was lucky to stumble upon the sale after she recently posted it. I was able to get these gems:
Orange Curacao (note the old bottle!), Amster-damsel in Distress, and London Bridge is Falling Brown
Arrivederci!, Innsbruck Bronze, Society Islands Sterling Silver
Grand Canyon Sunset, Opus in Amber, Hungary for My Honey
A True Ab-Original, Lighten Up, You're Two Pence!
I also was VERY lucky and won Traci's 2600 follower giveaway and I was able to choose 5 Julep nail polishes. I'm so excited to try Julep! Thanks again to Traci and her amazing giveaways!
