Nicole by OPI Gold Texture

The last Nicole by OPI Texture Coat is Gold Texture. I saved this one for last. While gold is also a color we can find from other brands like China Glaze and Sally Hansen, we haven’t seen one from OPI. I decided to pair this with China Glaze Blue Iguana, looking forward to the texture …

Once Upon a Time with Orly

Flower power

I’ve gotten acrylic nails on and off for more than 10 years. As a writer and editor, sometimes my hands take center stage as I’m taking notes in front of a source or when I’m shaking hands and meeting with various people whether in the office or on the road. The one thing I really enjoy about …

Happy birthday America!

I celebrated with flags on my nails… and patriotism on my eyes! Urban Decay: Radium liquid liner on lashline, Kiddie Pool eyeshadow on inside corner, Uzi eyeshadow in the middle of lid and up to brows, and Deluxe eyeshadow Heat in the outside corners. I used Benefit Bad Gal Mascara and highlighted upper lids with …

Polka pedi!

I have OPI’s Banana Bandana and I wasn’t sure how I felt about it as a nail color, so last night I did it as a pedi, and added blue and hot pink polka dots. I think I’d do this on my digits, too!
