The weather gets hotter so I decided to do a paisley gradient manicure with OPI, Barry M and some stamping. For that particular mani I used three OPI nail varnishes: OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, Flamingo Tini Pink and You’re Such a Budapest. They are such nice muted pastel colors so I thought they are perfect for purpose especially when combined with a bright stamping.

For the paisley  stamping I used Barry M Guava and Creative Shop Stamper.

OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI is from the Venice 2015 Collection and is a muted dusky light grey. I used it as the base for the whole project. Nice coverage and quite opaque with 2 coats.

OPI Flamingo Tini Pink is from the limited edition Hello Flamingo Collection and is a bubblegum pink pastel. Pretty nice tbh.

OPI You’re Such a Budapestfrom the Spring 2013 Euro Centrale Collection. Dusky lilac greyish, kinda periwinkle? Gotta test it alone in a mani some day.  Paisley Gradient Manicure with OPI IMG_1872 Paisley Gradient Manicure with OPI IMG_1881

Spring has sprung and it’s time for some strawberries. So here it is – OPI S-ageless Beauty!

OPI S-ageless Beauty is a muted pistachio green polish from the brand’s Infinite Shine 2 series – something like a gel effect nail polishes that should last longer, have intense colors and shine until removed.

I did some free-hand nail art aiming for strawberries. And then I decide to matte it- it looked really nice :

The manicure lasted good 6-7 days will I decided to change it. But to be fair I kinda don’t know if this Infinite Shine 2  polish delivers what is promised as usually the nail polishes last on my nails until I decide to change.

Holo, Holo, Holly Holo! Yes, today on the blog a holo mani with Colors by Llarowe Oh Christmas Tree and Milani Hi-Tech #511.

Colors by Llarowe Oh Christmas Tree is something like a green black-ish teal crazy holographic nail polish, from the Winter 2013 Collection. Crazy holographic and almost one coat-er but I went with 2.

That’s why I did this little out of focus pic with flashlight so that you can see how crazy holo the Colors by Llarowe nail polish is!

Milani Hi-Tech #511 is a golden leaning to green holo jelly. It wasn’t one coat-er as it was more watery so I applied 3 coats. The holo effect also wasn’t as visible and full as it was on the Colors by Llarowe Oh Christmas Tree.

To finish it off I added a little nail art with stamping with my favorite  Creative Shop stamper for color4nails. .

Both nail polishes wore well, with the Llarowe’s one better than Milani, where I saw some chipping on the 3-rd day :(.
