A few months ago I created a manicure for a Nicole by OPI Challenge that was run in collaboration with Prom Canada. (See it here and below!)
Fast forward a few months, and I was chosen as a runner-up in the challenge along with three other lovely bloggers (Chit Chat Nails, Miss Casey B and Swatch & Learn)!
Liner and Glitter and Gloss, Oh My! was chosen as the challenge winner with her fabulous entry (congrats!) and you can see the other beautiful runner up entries in Prom Canada’s debut magazine, on stands now! (Available at prom stores and Chapters.)
I am so excited to finally be in print!
Hi everyone! It’s time for another Nicole by OPI nail art challenge, and this time Prom Canada has partnered with Nicole by OPI and asked several bloggers to offer their take on “The Perfect Prom Mani.“
Prom Canada is a new magazine that will be launching in November 2013 to help Canadian girls plan for one of the most important days of their young lives. The pages will be filled with tons of tips on the latest fashion, beauty and hair trends. Nicole by OPI is the ultimate trend-setters’ nail lacquer. From edgy and experimental, to bold and beautiful, a Nicole girl is independent, carefree, and fashion forward.
Are you ready to see my nail art entry?
I used three Nicole by OPI shades to create this look: Something about Spring, Fabulous is my Middle Name and Candy is Dandy. Something about Spring is a beautiful hot pink creme while Fabulous is my Middle Name is a a clear polish filled with tiny bar glitter and gold shimmer – it’s crazy sparkly! And finally, Candy is Dandy is coral-leaning, warm pink Gumdrops polish with silver shimmer and larger hex glitter pieces which makes it really interesting and fun! It even shimmers with a silvery hue in certain light.
Using Something about Spring as a base colour, I then taped off a quilted pattern on each nail and applied a gradient of Fabulous is my Middle Name and Candy is Dandy – a texture and glitter gradient!
And finally, a macro of the mani:
