A lot of nail art begins with a white base coat, and this is the color I use most often: Alpine Snow from OPI. A lot of white polishes can be either super streaky or thick and gloppy. Alpine Snow seems to be the perfect medium between the two. White polishes in general are hard to work with because, like black, they are unforgiving. While I don’t tend to wear this color on its own, it does look very crisp and striking when left alone.
NOTE: For tips on painting a white manicure, I have a video HERE.
Wearing a classic red today. Somehow a red manicure goes with everything, right? ;) Polish is Red Hot Rio from OPI.
Are you ready for a gorgeous dark red glitter? OPI’s Underneath the Mistletoe is absolutely gorgeous! I find that it’s a bit easier to remove glitter polishes when I first paint a coat of regular polish, so I did paint one coat of Nicole by OPI Sealed With a Kris, and then painted two coats of Underneath the Mistletoe.
Sorry for not posting for SO long, guys! I’ve been posting nail pictures on my Instagram, though. Be sure to check those out.
Anyhow, this is definitely not one of the gruesome, scary Halloween manicures out there. Yikes! I’m definitely more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost type of Halloween celebrator. :)
