Tag Archives: Carrie Underwood Nicole by OPI

Yesterday I announced that I was participating in a new Nicole by OPI challenge that runs until February 25th (please head to twitter to tweet or retweet to help me win!), and today I wanted to share some more details about the nail art. 🙂

The challenge was to come up with a manicure to complement any of Carrie Underwood’s amazing songs using only shades from her new Nicole by OPI collection.
I chose the song “Before he Cheats.” Colours used (all from the Carrie Underwood for Nicole by OPI collection): Love My Pups, Carnival Cotton Candy, Some Hearts and American as Apple Pie, as well as the new 3-in-1 as my base/top coat:

Here is the mani before I added the nail art, with the beautiful pale nude Love My Pups on my index and ring (2 coats), red beauty American as Apple Pie on my middle, and deep pink crelly Some Hearts on my pinky:

And the final look once I added striping tape and the topping colours (middle and pinky fingers done freehand, and index is a sponge gradient of American as Apple Pie and Carnival Cotton Candy):

Happy Family Day everyone (that’s for some of us Canadians)!

Today is the start of a new Nicole by OPI Challenge for some of us Canadian bloggers where we need YOUR help to help us tweet and retweet! As you know, Nicole by OPI’s 2014 celebrity collaboration is inspired by award-winning superstar Carrie Underwood, and the objective was to come up with a manicure to complement any of Carrie’s amazing songs!
I chose the song “Before he Cheats.” As you may know, this song is about a cheating man and the revenge she gets on him… Here is the final look:

This manicure was created using an excess of pinks and reds but destroyed, in a sense, to represent her hurt broken heart. The heart in the middle is an abstract design of a broken/bleeding heart, and the lines on other nails represent her “carving her name” on the side of his truck and his leather seats.

I hope you like it! If you do, would you please help me win by heading over to Twitter and tweeting or retweeting this photo of my nail art, including my hashtag #Aire4Nicole.

Everyone can tweet once as well as retweet once per day (that’s two votes per person, per day)!

Thank you! ~xo
