I combined two different color collections from OPI to do this fall colored nail art.The lighter hue is from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s collection and it called “Five and Dime”
The orangish color is from the DC Collection and it is called “Yank My Doodle”
I did simple fading using a fan brush on the middle finger nails, blending of the colors while they were still uncured on the thumb and pinkie and I used the opposing colors on the ring fingers to draw with.
Happy Pre – Thanksgiving. I give thanks for you all!!!!

So after wearing this beauty for over 2 months, I finally took it off and created a Designscape using warm, glittering and rich colors from OPI’s DC Collection and the Artist Series.
Here is the new set for the first weeks of fall! “Designscape” is combining nail designs and uniting them with the use of color.
I used Artist Series Gel Color in “Ya Got me Copper” on my thumb, ring and partially n my pinkie. I used “Pale to the Chief” in the regular Gel Color line on my pointer finger. My middle accent finger is a combo of “Ya Got me Copper”, “Pale to the Chief” and “Kerry Blossom”
The release of OPI’s Fall Winter collection, entitled the DC Collection which features collaboration from the beautiful and talented actress, Kerry Washington, is one of my favorite collections. Although it is a fall release, where you find predominately dark shade, this collections delights me with its lighter colors such as “Never a Dulles Moment” and “Freedom of Peach”
The usual 12 colors plus 3 more picked especially by Kerry Washington. (marked with ***)
Here they are.
CIA-COLOR IS AWESOME
A dark blue green that will suite any business attire. A great option instead of straight black.
FREEDOM OF PEACH
This color is the perfect blend of fall color but still has a lightness to it so you don’t feel weighed down by the color!
INSIDE THE ISABELLETWAY ***
Creamy medium mocha brown. I think it would look great with Pale to The Chief for nail art!
KERRY BLOSSOM ***
This is a classic winter shade in a deep darker plum tone. Classy.
LIV’IN IN THE GRAY ***
Another of my favorites. This gray is the perfect grey for my liking. An opaque medium dark grey that will work with any skin tone.
A fun berry toned red for those cooler nights.
NEVER A DULLES MOMENT
Such a great change to see some bright colors in a fall release. It lightens up the whole collection and will let us nail artists create vibrant winter nail art.
OPI BY POPULAR VOTE
More of a bluish red. Nice to have a choice in your reds.
PALE TO THE CHIEF
This one of course will be the base for a lot of nail art. Creamy nude a little on the darker side than summer shades of nude.
SHHH’S-IT’S TOP SECRET
This color mixes dark grey and browns to give us a almost black but still dark dark brown tone.
SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE
Another great neutral tone for winter. This creme texture will work well with all the others in this collection. Can be for business or weekend wear. Muted brown would be a good description.
STAY OFF THE LAWN
Lively dark green shade but completely classy.
SUZI-THE FIRST LADY OF NAILS
This is more of a camo green. I like the creme texture of this one as well.
WE THE FEMALE
A sexy burgundy red. Straight up sexy!
YANK MY DOODLE
Besides the fun name, this color is so great for fall. A bit of a burnt orange or pumpkin color.
I noted after I took the photos of the swatches that this whole collection is cremes. Interesting and lovely collection.
Available at fine salons and retailers, your local professional supplier and by checking in at www.opi.com
I can say that Kerry Washington’s personality is all over this collection. Stylish, fun, classy and a little sassy. The lady is simply beautiful!
