Give it up for Nicki Minaj
First I would like to say that these pictures are pretty true to color as far as the polish, but my skin by no means is this boiled lobster shade of red. I've no idea what my camera was thinking.
So I am loving these two shades from OPI's Nicki Minaj collection. They are super bright, fun and sassy. Being as such I thought they needed a unique look. I took my inspiration from indigonova1 because the colors and the effect just seemed to be perfect for each other. I wasn't ready to jump in with all my fingers so to speak so I opted for two accent nails.
Did It On Em is the bright and fun green, which I used on my ring finger while Fly is the blue that I used on all the other fingers. Fly only needed two coats to be opaque while Did It On Em was thinner and had a streak problem it took 3-4 coats to get it opaque. You'll noticed that my blues are a bit different, I actually used acrylic paint for the stripes and dots just because I had the two matching colors and acrylic for me is easier to work with for detail work.
I really love this, it's is so bright and fresh and just plain fun. I never saw myself as liking the more graphic prints on my nails, but I'm rethinking that now. Aside from my obvious glitch on the index finger (oops) I discovered too late that there was something stuck in my Seche Vite brush that left little spots, Lesson learned...wipe your brush.
What do you think, would this make you rethink graphic patterns on your nails?
Thanks so much for reading, until next time, take care!
