Mermaids Pirates

The third color from the Opi´s Pirates of the Caribbean that I try is the dusty light pastel turquoise called "Mermaids tears" My favorite in this collection!
First 3 coats of MT then I made dots with "Planks a lot" & "Sparrow me the drama" from the same collection. When I first saw the pictures of the Pirates collection I was not impressed, but I ordered them anyway and I'm so happy I did! They are so much nicer in real life, I love them all! :)

Blue on Blue

Today I have a favorite combo, color on color stamping, base and pattern color in the same but different shades. I started with 3 coats of Opi "What's with the cattitude?" a pastel light blue, one of my favorite polish. Then I made the flower pattern with China Glaze "Adore" and BM plate 205. Finished with rhinestones in light blue on my ring finger and then done!

Do you know that you can click on the images to make them larger? It's easier to see the pattern then! :)

Neon Zebra Splash!!

Okay, this is a crazy one, I know but I really love it! I could not stop staring at my nails when I had this on and I got so many compliments for it too :)

I started with two coats of China Glaze "White out" and then the craziness began, I sponged on my nails with China Glaze's Poolside collection "Kiwi cool-ada" "Yellow polka dot bikini" "Sun Worshiper" "Flip flop fantasy" and "Pool party". This are all neon colors. Then one coat of SV to even everything out and after that I made the Zebra print with Konad SP black and plate m57. Freehand the tips and one more coat of SV and then done!

As usual it's soooo hard to capture the true neon color on camera, this is much more neon in real life. Now, on to the picture, enjoy! :)
