How adorable are these miniature OPI lacquers?! I am a sucker for anything in miniature form; ponies, fun-sized Mars bars, Gary Coleman, you get the drift!
Aaaaaaaaaanway, I snapped up this cute 4-pack of OPI – The Brazil Collection from Ulta (in Augusta) for $12.95! They’re a perfect size for nail polish as I have never used up any of my polishes in the past, they usually crust over never to be able to opened again. My only fault with them is that the brush is small (derrrr) so they become a bit hard to manoeuvre with my opposite hand, but after a bit of practise they were A-OK.
The colours are super pretty, especially Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? And can we talk about the names? How hilarious are they? I also scored a new Essie polish which was only $8 or something ridiculous like that at Duane Reade in NYC. So, so cheap!! Now that I had these new polishes I wanted to take my nail game to the next level. Seeing as I am no where near able to free paint designs on my nails a la Adjpants, I thought I could get some snazzy French manicure stickers (thanks eBay) and get two-toned talons happening. What do you think?
This colour combo reminds me of an ice-cream cone – perfect for summer
These stickers were super easy to use – just a quick dab of polish to the tips and wait for them to dry completely (unlike me who was a little too impatient to get them done) then pop the sticker on top and finish off the rest of your nail – et voilà! A cheap and cheerful way to jazz up your manicure. The stickers are very sticky (again, derrrr! I’m full of them today kids!) so I would suggest sticking them on the backs of your hand to make them less tacky on your nails.
My Virgin hostie nails!
Do you have a cheap and cheerful way to paint your nails? I’ve heard that you can use a toothpick (in lieu of a nail pen) to make dots – does this work??
