OPI ‘Be A Dahlia Won’t You’ Nail Art

I got a few OPI polishes free when I subscribed to a magazine and they arrived on Friday (this may or may not have been what finally swayed me to subscribe…). One is ‘Suzy Says Feng Shui’ – which I already owned – and the other is the pink used in this mani – ‘Be A Dahlia Won’t You’.

This is a vibrant bright pink polish with glass flecked glitter. This only took two thin coats for full coverage, although it did take quite a long time to dry even with Seiche Vite which is unusual for OPI polishes.

Unfortunately I am just not in love with this polish. I like pink but this is just TOO pink for me. The full, one-colour manicure of this nail polish was not doing it for me, so I decided to liven it up a bit with some nail art.

I painted half the nails white (using a Natural Collection polish – my top tip for an opaque, affordable white polish) and used a black nail art pen to do the tribals, leopard print, triangles and stripes. I did the reverse on the other hand (white detail on black background) but my hands are super shaky today (I’m dying of a hangover!) and I just wasn’t happy with the right hand so I’m hiding that picture!

I really like this mani and am definitely going to try it with some other colours.

Jan ’16 EDIT: I think this polish is now discontinued, but there’s a similar colour HERE.

Spring Leopard Print Nail Art

I am really excited about spring so wanted to do something cute and pretty on my nails. I love leopard print anyway but like the idea of making it more girly and eye-catching so decided to do multi-pastel leopard print! What do you think?

I used various 17 and Barry M pastels, I can give you the colours if you’re interested, just let me know in the comments. You can buy Seventeen polishes HERE and Barry M polishes HERE.

Leopard print nail art is such a quick and easy mani that I always wonder why I don’t do it more often. Even my boss at work was impressed and he doesn’t usually even notice my crazy nails!
