So which shades are on your back-to-school shopping list? 🙂

Happy Easter weekend everyone!!

Though I simply adore the cute pastels associated with Easter – pale yellow, baby pink and blue –  I was planning on wearing a pastel yellow, I was hit by a bolt of inspiration when I saw this gorgeous manicure on the the Lacquerheads of Oz Instagram. And let me tell you, I had never attempted a dotticure! I always mention this, but I’m not big on doing nail art myself… (I love seeing everyone else’s!) Jelly sandwiches, yes. French manicures… love. But actual nail art is a bit foreign to me.

However, I decided to give it a try, without dotting tools, no less! So out came the bobby pins, the gorgeous OPI Euro Centrale collection, and a new go-to polish from Nicole by OPI: Am I Making Myself Claire? from the Modern Family collection!

I decided to use the beautiful vanilla shade My Vampire is Buff as my base, which I previously reviewed here. This is the perfect bisque shade, one that I haven’t tired of. Here is our canvas at 2 coats:

Since this was a first for me, I decided to document the process (for both you and for me). 🙂 I added some random dots using Nicole by OPI’s Am I Making Myself Claire?, a dusty, greyed lilac that is perfection in both formula and application, and OPI You’re Such a Budapest, a pretty and soft periwinkle/pale lilac shade. Budapest actually has a hint of a shimmer that is more visible when it’s used as a regular polish on the full nail. Here is what it looked like:

OPI_EuroCen_dott1

The combination of these colours was gorgeous – soft, pastel and very spring-like!  The finishing touch was OPI…Eurso Euro, a dark blue creme, leaning slightly purple, with a vibrancy that would make this manicure pop:

In the above bright sun photo, the bottle looks a bit brighter than the colour is in real life.

The same manicure, with the bottle of You’re Such a Budapest, and a layer of top coat:

What do you think?

 

I fell in love with this manicure, and just loved the gradient-dotticure look. This was one of those manicures that received some oohs and aahs, mainly due to the beautiful colour selection. OPI really has outdone themselves with their Euro Centrale collection!

 

And finally, a new day, a new look. Layering a coat of OPI’s new Matte Top Coat on this mani gave it an artsy, edgy look:

OPI_EuroCen_dott4Matte

OPI’s new Matte Top Coat dries in seconds, to a satiny, matte, velvety finish. It actually makes the polish feel buffed – a very natural-nails feel. I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that OPI finally launched this product, because there was a period of time last year that I searched high and low for a matte-maker… only to find a lone product that was accessible on the market. I’ve also tried this with glitter and it does not disappoint!!

So which is your favourite look, and what did you think of my first dotticure?

America’s Funniest Family!

Nicole by OPI and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products Announce Collaboration with
Hit ABC Comedy Modern Family

Nicole by OPI, in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, launches 14 new nail lacquers inspired by ABC’s award-winning comedy, Modern Family. The nail line features shades created to capture the show’s colourful personalities, from a classic taupe named after family patriarch Jay, to a sparkly pink hue fitting for toddler Lily.

“Modern Family is not only one of the funniest shows on television, it features a great ensemble cast of rich characters that inspired a range of shades, from pastel hues like sea foam green and periwinkle to brighter colors of cobalt and red-violet,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, Nicole by OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “From studious Alex to bombshell Gloria, to classic (and neurotic) Claire, to flirty Haley, there are shades to represent each of these uniquely fabulous women – and everyone else in the blended family.

“The Nicole consumer embraces the same spirit of diversity and individuality that’s apparent on the show,” explains Weiss-Fischmann. “The colors inspired by Modern Family offer a perfect way to express that spirit!”

Modern Family is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and licensed through Fox Consumer Products. Jeffrey Godsick, President of Fox Consumer Products added, “Modern Family is a series that has a massive following. In partnering with Nicole by OPI, we’re not only able to reach our show’s large fan base, but deliver a product that captures the trend-forward elements and unique characteristics of the series.”
