Sand Tip Mani

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Yet another way to wear OPI's new liquid sand nail lacquer- sand tips! I love the contrast of matte & gloss finish, don't you? Here are the two polishes I used to create the look (*Liquid Sand comes in several fun colors- FYI):
'Vampsterdam' and 'Stay the Night' by OPI
Start by painting your nails as usual and finish with a top coat to make them nice and shiny. Read more about my favorite topcoat in the WORLD by clicking here. 
Once your polish and top coat are completely dry, apply the liquid sand to the tips of your nails like so. ^
I did this freehand but if you feel that you need more stability, simply place a strip of scotch tape across the nail and apply paint that way. As soon as you've finished paining each nail, remove the strip of tape ('before' the polish is dry). 
And you're done! Super easy & trendy nails in no time. :)

Spring has finally arrived in the Mitten and I'm REALLY looking forward to launching some cute outfit posts soon, so be watching for those. I'm just waiting for the perfect sunny day to wear my new finds! I think this weekend is supposed to be in the 70's here, so that should be perfect. I don't know about you but I feel so invigorated lately with the sun being out! I'm getting things cleaned around the house that I didn't even know were dirty.. haha. Last night Ben and I went to see 'The Croods' and I laughed like a kid through the whole thing. Sooo adorable. Has anyone else seen it?

I wish you all the best day! See you back here soon 

Linking up with Shanna!! :)
