Today is the day for brevity. No particular reason, I'm just feeling less-than-verbose today. But I did make some polish, so I'm not completely un-nichole-ish today.
OPI Alpine Snow
Octopus Party Ink or Swim
I achieved this look using my (not) patented Cling Film method. The only difference is I only touched film-to-nail once. The bright white base, plus the pretty blue and fuchsia jellies just screams springtime to me. And while I realize that in my neck of the woods it's been warm and dry, that is not the case everywhere...and there are some folks pining away for spring.
This one is stupid-easy, which is why it's not getting a post of it's own. You need just two things, and a little (very little) bit of patience. It's perfect!
Regular polish (I used OCC Nail Polish in Strumpet)
Cheap Clear polish (I used a $0.94 NYC clear)
Start by pouring out a little clear polish to make room for the added color. Then add...maybe 20 drops of colored polish. (I checked the color every 5-10 drops. 5 drops makes for a lovely natural blush color, FYI) Then roll and shake the polish until it's all mixed. If you have steel balls, you can add them to make life easier. I'm not sure yet if this will separate or not, but it applies nicely and is the perfect pinky color.
