The last road trip I went on was to California, where my boyfriend and I (plus a couple of our best friends) went to Disneyland. The trip was a blast, and we were basically pros at navigating the Disney FastPass scene and making the most of our days. It was magic!
Then, on the way back, the air conditioning in my car died. Oh, and did I mention that this was in June? In the middle of the desert? That sucked. But such is the nature of road trips, right? You gotta roll with the punches! And the mishaps always make the best memories.
I know how it goes. Your nails are the stars. You pamper them, you beautify them, you moisturize your cuticles and make sure there are no stray hangnails. You polish them to perfection and you might spend hours on nail art. But what about your hands? I know I'm guilty of neglecting them sometimes, and I'll bet that you might be too. But the fact is, your hands are important and deserve attention. Besides, beautiful hands provide a beautiful frame for your nails!
Despite the fact that I haven't seen or read 50 Shades of Grey, I think we all know the basic gist of the story. OPI's 50 Shades collection includes a range of six shades - five greys and a red - and I used three of them to create this nail art look today. I chose a geometric pattern, one that you might find on a necktie, which fits with what I know about the story quite well, I think.
China Glaze's new summer collection, Electric Nights, draws inspiration from the electronic dance music culture with nine neon cremes and three neon glitter toppers. It's not my scene but these polishes sure are! They're bright, they're fun, they're bumpin'. Read on to check out my swatches!
How would you like to go behind the scenes of one of your favorite nail polish brands? I had the opportunity to live the dream when I recently visited OPI headquarters with Leslie from Work/Play/Polish. I had to take some photos and videos to share with you guys, so come with me as we pull back the curtain and peek into their world of nails!
