As part of the Nails Mastered course, we were tasked with creating nails to represent one of eight trends forecast by World Global Style Network for Spring Summer 2017.
I choose “Peasant Charm”
Using a technique I learned from Neiru, gel color by OPI and matte gel top coat from Light Elegance I created these.
About the top coat! It is so nice to work with because the consistency is thicker than regular gel top coats. It levels out beautifully and has a definite matte appearance once it is cleaned. If you love the look of matte, I definitely suggest this one!
I am so in love with the nude colors that are out on the market right now. I especially love when you add something so simple as a matte top coat to give your manicure subtle texture.
Or by adding some bling!!!! Just on one nail of course!!! LOL
“Put it in Neutral” with a little Bling!!!!
Although I have done swatches and a full post (http://seriouslynails.com/?p=4290) I thought I would share with you some of the options that you have to purchase these beauties. And to introduce to you a very “of the moment” lacquer option.
To further my beginning paragraph, OPI is introducing richly pigmented formulas you love to love in this season’s hottest nude mattenail trend!OPI is introducing the new SoftShades Collection.
This of-the-moment collection of blushes, nudes, and matte shades delivers rich, true-to-bottle color with just a few coats, even in the lightesthues.
Colors in this package are “Love is in the Bare” and “I Couldn’t Bare Less.”
And since they are already matte, it is easy easy easy!
Next we have our favorites, the Mini’s. 4 easy to pack travel sizes of lacquer in the shades of “Act your Beige”, “This Silver is Mine”, “Make Light of the Situation” and my personal favorite and the one featured in the first picture, “Put it in Neutral”.
Finally to get your own bling-ed out look, OPI gives us The Look of Crystal Kit, which includes 3 lovely colors to play with. “Chiffon My Mind”, “This Silver is Mine”, and “Black Onyx.” Then the playing gets easy with real Swarovski crystals, and glue!
Let the games begin!
