Sorry for the minor break in posting y'all! I had some technical difficulties with my camera not recognizing my memory card anymore. After some Googling, it turns out I wore it out. To much taking it in and out to get pics off for posts. Thankfully, I was able to get all my photos off no problem, but I couldn't get the camera to recognize it anymore. While I was dealing with that frustration, I had to be patient. BUT....solved and now I have new pretties to show you! WHOOP!
So I showed your KBShimmer Foiled the other day. While admiring it, I had a thought. It would be the perfect silver base to try out my new OPI ColorPaints mini-set. For this look, I used OPI ColorPaints Pen & Pink and OPI ColorPaints Purple Perspective. I wanted to try a gradient and it turned out very watercolor-ish. I started with a coat of Purple Perspective on the bottom 1/4 of my nail, then added another coat over that which went up about half way. I then switched to Pen & Pink, coating 3/4 of the nail and finally a second pass that covered the whole nail. For some reason the colors didn't give full opacity at the tip of each nail.
I really like the overall effect here. I can't wait to play with these some more. But here is my question...would anyone be interested in a tutorial video or photo of this? I'm thinking of branching out. Let me know!
Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
