OPI ‘Thanks A Windmillion’
This is the second of the polishes I got from the O.P.I Holland collection. It is a pretty dusky sage green creme polish and is a perfect shade for Spring as it fits the pastel trend very well but has a bit of edge to it.
Unlike ‘A Roll in the Hague’ (you can read my review of that polish HERE), this polish went on perfectly and dried super quickly. I think ‘A Roll In The Hague’ may have been a dodgy bottle as usually you really can’t beat OPI for great application, I could have spent a fortune on this range!
You can buy this polish HERE if you love it as much as I do.
Today’s challenge theme was ‘Green’. I have two greens and wasn’t keen on having a block colour manicure in either. So I decided to do another nail art manicure, after the success of the bumblebees yesterday. I had seen kiwis done on this blog: http://nailpolishdistraction.tumblr.com/ and fell in love with them.
I made a frankenpolish out of the two greens I own (pictures below), did two coats of that and then did white ovals on top.
The frankenpolish is on the right. Not the loveliest colour I’ve ever seen, but perfect for this mani.
I used a tiny paintbrush and white acrylic paint to do stipes coming outwards from the centre. Once they were dried, I used a spotting tool to put black acrylic paint spots for the seeds.
Really pleased with this mani, although it has made me crave kiwis…!
