OPI SoftShades Collection swatches, review, bridal nail art

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

OPI, is celebrating the lighter side of nail color with The SoftShades Collection. This collection of blushes, nudes, and matte shades delivers rich, true-to-bottle color with just a few coats, even in the lightest hues. I'm excited to be able to share these with you. These shades simply scream "wedding" to me. These polishes are perfect for a walk down the aisle or an everyday soft and subtle look. I used one of these sheer polishes to create a stunning bridal nail art look.

So let's take a look at these sheer polishes. 

Stamped nail art is habit forming

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I stamped yet again. This is becoming a habit for me. I love the different looks I can get with a fun base and the swish of a stamp.

For this one I used an alcohol ink base. I like using alcohol inks. They are so much fun and create a fun, marbled look. Then I stamped with Mundo De Unas Cream stamping polish and used BundleMonster image plate XL07.

I love the way the look came together. The colors just complement each other and the design works well over the alcohol ink base.

What do you think? What colors would you use?

These products were purchased by me.

Stamping out the stamping bugs

Thursday, April 23, 2015

I convinced myself that I had to try stamping to create nail art again. I have never had much luck with stamping and couldn't seem to transfer a clean image to my nails. Well, I am glad I tried again. Laurie from Dressed Up Digits gave me the courage to try again.

A little while back, I purchased some Mundo de Unas stamping polish. Well, it sat on my desk for weeks before I gathered the courage to attempt nail art with stamping. Let me tell you... it made all the difference in the world. I am extremely excited as this opens a whole new nail art door for me!

I started off with a base coat of OPI Alpine Snow and added an alcohol ink marble to it. I used Mermaid and Poppyfield inks. I love alcohol inks for a quick marbled look. Then I stamped with Mundo de Unas Blue Navy and an image from the XL 18 plate from BundleMonster. The Blue Navy polish transferred flawlessly to my nails. There was no lifting of the polish or bald spots left behind.   I still need to work on my placement though. The image plate was also easy to work with.

I will definitely be increasing my stash of image plates and stamping polishes. I know that a lot of people have great luck using normal polishes to stamp with - and I will eventually try those again - after I build my confidence and skills.

Have you tried Mundo de Unas? What do you stamp with for a clean image?

I purchased this Mundo polish (and quite a few others) from llarowe.
