The Weekly Nail Report

Nail-job craving: I went to Tips Nail Bar on the weekend to try out the new OPI GelColor (thanks Langton PR!) and went with an open mind, not knowing what colours I’d have to choose from. In terms of the new product,  OPI GelColor is thinner than Axxium and cures in 30 seconds in an LED lamp (versus the two-minute cure time under a UV lamp for Axxium). For removal, as with Axxium, you have to go to the nail salon.

Anyhow, I let Leeanne Colley run with what she thought would look fantastic.

How I satisfied that craving: Leeanne suggested Russian Navy and then dipping the tips into gold glitter. And I think you know I love me some glitter, so my answer? Duh. YES!

So the process began: base coat, two coats of Russian Navy (cured in between each step), top coat applied just to the tips, then I dipped my finger into the pot of loose gold glitter, cured under lamp, buffed to reduce the bumpiness of the glitter, then top coat over the whole nail bed and cured.

How this nail colour make me feel: You may recall last week’s glittery nail didn’t have the power to cheer me up? Well, this one did the trick :)

Love it or hate it: Love.
