OPI's annual Soft Shades collection for spring 2014 is dedicated to The Muppets, who have a new movie coming out this month called Muppets Most Wanted. Without getting into too much detail, the caper is a European adventure complete with mistaken identity, love, and crime! The polish collection consists of eight lacquers including some surprises like shredded glitter, duochromes, and a dash of texture. Read on for swatches and my thoughts.
Pretty & Polished is bringing out the special effect polishes for spring with their Spring FX line, which includes holographics, duochromes, and thermals (some are even combinations of those). I have four of the five shades in the collection to share with you today. Be sure to stop by the comments and let me know which ones you're dying to rock this spring!
There are few colors in the new OPI Brazil collection that piqued my interest more than Where Did Suzi's Man-go?. It's orange, but a soft orange that looks like a mango and a cantaloupe had a baby. I wore it alone for a day but wanted to freshen things up when the next day rolled around. Do you ever add to or change your manicures to get more mileage out of them?
I was brainstorming for The Lacquer Legion's "Adoration" prompt and, while there are many things I adore in the world, nothing seemed more appropriate for my post than nail art dedicated to... nail art! This manicure represents how much brighter nail art has made my life. Doing nail art, wearing nail art, looking at nail art, talking about nail art, I love it all.
Sometimes I do a manicure and upload it to my drafts, but then something happens and it never gets published. Either I have too many other things to post and then too much time passes, or I fall out of love with the look, or some weird Twilight Zone stuff happens and I basically forget that it's in there. I have been busy with behind the scenes blog stuff lately, so I thought it would be fun to raid my post drafts for a new look to share with you today.
This blushing peach gradient was a reject from the 31 Day Challenge; I ended up posting leather gradient nail art instead. Seeing this look now though, I find it quite pretty, and great for the ever-warming Arizona springtime.
