Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Due to some technical glitches with the original Show Me Your Nails Thread, I am starting a new thread with @vegchililover78's blessing (She says "hello," by the way!).

 

Please share your nail looks, nail art and manicures!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Hi @2manyperfumes ,

 

I love this type of color on my nails! It's a darker shade but still a pop of color! 

 

Best Wishes,

 

Janean

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RebeccaBT β€οΈ It’s a pretty stone (not sure what it is) but I’ve had it for about 15 years.  

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I recently discovered RedditLacqueristas and scrolled through pages and pages of pages of nails. So purdy! I saw quite a few matte nails and was inspired to pull out my almost-forgotten matte top coat for a play session ❀️

 

Base for all nails: Butter London Come To Bed Red (which is, by the way, perhaps the dreamiest cream I've ever used....no streaks, no lumps, no bubbles. Fantastic!

 

The pink ones have a coat of Nicole by OPI top coat in Enchantress. It was a bit more coverage than I realized it would be...was hoping for the red to still show up more instead of going full on pink, but IRL it's got a lovely blue shift that excuses that failure lol.

 

Topped with Glisten & Glow fast dry top coat, then a coat of OPI Matte top coat.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

It's really nice @RGbrown It's reminding me of Clash of the Tartans from OPI's Scotland Collection, except lighter. Here is a screenshot from a very soothing video where Phoebe Moon swatches all the shades

I've got several from the Scotland collection on my wish list including that one and the matte purple...just keeping my fingers crossed for a good sale before they sell out (and also still trying to talk myself out of them πŸ˜‚)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

There will be some in the clearance section by New Year's! And I'm hoping to pick up the 2 matte metallics too. I bought 7 shades from the collection, and a new base coat, on Platinum Appreciation day because OPI was b1g1 half off, and 10x pts. I don't know why exactly but I'm a little obsessed with this collection.

@RGbrown 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I almost pulled the trigger that day, but talked myself out of it...my polish cabinets are practically bursting, and I'm trying to be better with not buying more. But I WANT them! 🀣 I'm definitely hoping the colors are still around by the time the collection hits clearance, but I'm also a little afraid they won't be. It's a good collection! It's the first set OPI has put out in a while where I want more than just one or two.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Ah that big of a stash would give me pause as well. I bet you could exactly duplicate that Tartans pink, and since you are so right about the quick, unforgiving dry down of matte polishes, you're probably better off with the matte top coat over a dupe! I think I will actually go that route! Me, I have been travelling so much in the past 2 years, I was down to 7 colors, 2 top coats, and 1 very thick quarter-bottle of base coat. @RGbrown 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@gingerleigh 

Seven shades? Wow! I can't even begin to remember how long it's been since I had that few 🀣 

 

Duping with a glossy color + matte top coat probably is the more sensible route. Might not stop me from buying it anyways if I catch a deal πŸ˜‚

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Love this whimsical look with the reds and pinks @RGbrown πŸ₯° I’ve wanted to pick up some mattes but haven’t yet.  Still hunting for interesting nail stickers.  

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@2manyperfumes 

Mattes can be tricky to work with; they dry so quickly that it can be hard to get even coverage without a streaky mess. I don't mess with them often because of that though I do still grab one from time to time. Grab a clear matte top coat though...it's much easier to work with, and you can mattify any shade in your collection!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I like that idea @RGbrown the matte top coat.  Much easier to just change the sheen of a fave colour than buy more and fuss with them. πŸ₯°

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown I love all the different tones. So pretty
