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!

@itsfi @Titian06 

Thanks y'all! I was thrilled to find these; I've got a few DL's and really like them, but not enough to pay $20 a bottle 🚫 I love a good deal though! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Congratulations on your find, @RGbrown ! 🥳

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This has been holding up pretty well. 😁

All color polishes are OPI Infinite Shine.
 
Base color: Marigolden Hour is a warm, orange leaning yellow polish; took 3 coats for full opacity. It looks a lot more yellow in the bottle and photos.
 
Nail art: Done with a dotting tool. Alpine Snow for middle of flowers, and two different blue polishes for the petals, though it's almost impossible to know that just by the photos. The variances in the blue are a slightly easier to distinguish in person.
 
  • Tile Art to Warm Your Heart is the lighter of the two colors, a mid-tone royal blue.
  • Ring In the Blue Year, a deep cobalt blue, is the polish on the flower closest to the nail tip.

 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

such a cute mani @itsfi !

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@makeitup305, thank you! 😊 This was a fun one! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Awww, @itsfi, those are just happy summer colors 💛

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, they are, aren't they?! I'm looking forward to summer.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  This is adorable! I was thinking "how'd she get Marigolden Hour to look so yellow?" 😄 Visually/mentally adjusting for that shade's in-person appearance, I still love your happy sunny mani. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@WinglessOne, thank you. Oh my goodness. OPI Marigolden Hour seems to photographs more yellow in every light and setting. I tried adjusting the color on my iPhone to see if I could get the polish to pick up at least some of the orange, but nope. At one point I adjusted the exposure as far as I could and that did the best job of picking up the orange (but by no means truly capturing it) - in exchange for that, the extreme adjustment made my skin glow fluorescent red. 😂🤣😂 

 

I was checking BIC while waiting for my bags, and before leaving the parking garage, I took this photo in the car, with flash.

This is as close as I can get to showing how the polish leans orange without making my skin look like it's radioactive. ha! Now it just looks like I have a tan. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Ah, now that's closer to the Marigolden Hour my nails have known. I usually describe it as kinda like American cheese color, just a touch yellower. 🧡💛 

 

And I totally hear you about iPhone photo adjustments. Most of the time, I correct temperature and color values on my laptop via Photos (I stopped my Photoshop subscription some time ago and miss it) instead of messing with it on my phone. It's a lot easier for me that way, what with a larger suite of adjustment settings/tools—though I wish Apple had kept perspective correction in MacOS Photos, like they did for iOS Photos. And this reminds me that I still have the free Photoshop Express app on my iPhone... I haven't used it in a long time, so I don't remember if it offers better color correction tools than iOS Photos. I do remember using it a lot on my iPad for collages. Noting to self to play with it again this weekend. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi So pretty and cheerful! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Mellmars1185, thank you. Flowers and a bright base definitely makes for a cheerful pairing. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Oh these are so beautiful!!! I love the yellow 🥰and your flowers are just adorable @itsfi 🌻🌻

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Cissy63! I love the brightness and cheer of the yellow polish. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Too cute, @itsfi ! 🥳  I absolutely love your mani! 💛💙🤍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Titian06! I have been known to stick to a handful of polishes or within certain color families, so it's been nice branching out. I think I'll be playing with more blue and yellow mani's in the future as well. 💙💛

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Love love love the yellow and blue combo, and the flowers are the perfect accent! 💙💛

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! I'm getting more comfortable with this dotting tool. 💅 Working my way through my yellows and blues too - love the pairing. Haven't decluttered any more since the ones during the beginning of the year - ha!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0
