OPI SoftShades Collection Swatches with Rhinestone Stack Nail Art

I'm doing a little spring cleaning - on my nails! Today I'm sharing the palette cleansing collection of the OPI SoftShades. These stray far away from the neons and brights that summer promises, but I personally welcome the change. This little collection has 6 shades that all complement even the least daring lady, with neutral pinks and whites. For the more out-there wear, there are a few glitters.

My favorite shade is Act Your Beige!, so I chose it for nail art. Only, it didn't need much. I didn't want to cover it because it's so pretty, so I just popped a few rhinestones and microbeads onto a few nails, and this stunning design came through.

I did 3 coats of Act Your Beige! because I like a milky finish. The rhinestones I used come from a few places, like Born Pretty Store.

Here's a little more side detail on the rhinestone stack.


Let's take a look at the SoftShades colors on their own, starting with one of the glitters.

Kitchen Tiles Geometric Nail Art Tutorial

Inspiration can strike anytime from anything. The idea for this geometric nail art came straight from the kitchen - it's kitchen tiles!

This design is easy to duplicate, even if you're not adept with a striping brush. I find it easier sometimes to use a striping polish, like the Color Madric polishes shown here.

I created this look for Divine Caroline, so visit the tutorial here to learn how to get the look!

I'm delighted to share some juicy news, and juicy little berries with you today, all from the Zoya Delight collection! This is Zoya's Spring 2015 collection, and it's stunningly spring.

My favorite color is yellow, so I fell in love with the base for this nail art, Daisy, instantly. I did some tiny little strawberries with Eden and Tiana. This design wasn't hard, though I wish I'd been more careful and precise with the seeds on the berries. Maybe I need to get my vision checked!

Let's see Delight on its own, with individual swatches. Enjoy!

See why I fell in love with Daisy (3 coats)? This is a daffodil yellow with iridescent shimmer.

Eden (3 coats) doesn't have any sparkle...it's a bubblegum pink creme.

Zoya Wishes Collection with a Ritzy Ruffian

Ringing in spring doesn't mean winter collections are out of style, and while I'm late posting this for you, I'm no less excited about the colors in this Winter 2014 collection, Wishes

This collection features three PixieDusts and three untexturized polishes with a few different finishes. What's great about it is how they each come in a pair. There's a blue, purple, and black pair. So I kept the pairings true and did a simple but stunning ruffian manicure with four of the colors.

I bumped up the contrast of this ruffian by applying the OPI Matte Top Coat over the PixieDust part. Ready to see them solo? Keep scrolling!

Haven (1-2 coats) is a totally amazing purple foil with a hint of pink shimmer to accent it. The fact that it can cover in 1-2 coats should give you an idea of how awesome it applies. This is hands-down my favorite.

Zoya - Thea
Zoya - Thea

Thea (2 coats) is shown here with no top coat. That's the best way to get the ultimate PixieDust-effect, so all the PixieDusts you'll see in today's post won't have top coat. The gritty glitter is a pinky-purple with tons of rainbow iridescent glitter.

Zoya - Prim
Zoya - Prim

Prim (1-2 coats) covers amazingly, and although it's a little streaky because it's a foil finish, it's still a perfect periwinkle foil color.

Color Club - Seven Deadly Sins Collection with Bold Bedrock Nail Art

If you're reading this, then nail polish is probably one of your biggest vices. Well today, you can indulge your vices and the other seven deadly sins with Color Club's Seven Deadly Sins collection.

These polishes are unique and gritty. They're all texturized, though I'm showing you them with top coat. I liked the texture, so I blended them to create this sort of bold bedrock look.

Bold Bedrock Marbled Nails

I dabbed the colors over each other with a cosmetic sponge. It started to look a little galaxy-esque, but the colors felt more marbled. Do you like this look, or does it look too muddled?

The polish I'm holding is Dirty Money, so let's take a look at it on its own.

Dirty Money (2 coats) is a white gold texturized polish with larger silver glitter pieces. These texturized polishes are all easy to apply and smooth out over the nail in two coats. Obviously they don't get completely smooth, because they're texturized, but they don't ripple across the nail.
