OPI Alpine Snow

May 29, 2014

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.

VIDEO: Polish Tips! Getting the perfect white manicure

October 23, 2013

I recently found some old video footage that I shot back in June. While I don’t like the particular polish color I used in the video (I think it’s technically a white neon), the tips included in the video are valuable because white (and super light) nail polishes are particularly challenging. It can be difficult to get perfect results.

Here are some tips and tricks for getting the best manicure possible when using white polishes. :)

NOTE: The polish I used is the video is Mod in Manhattan from Color Club. It was included in a Birchbox sample box.

Cutesy Halloween Stamped Manicure

October 17, 2013

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. :)

Here are the details on each finger…

All nails were topped with Seche Vite topcoat. :)
