More OPI Germany nail art? Well of course! The collection is definitely inspiring to me and I just keep reaching for them!
For this look, I started out by making a gradient of Deutsche You Want Me Baby (the glowy orange shimmer) and Danke-shiny Red (the fiery red shimmer). I quickly realized that the gradient wasn't obvious enough for my tastes, so I added Ger-manicure by OPI into the mix, which gave the gradient a lovely kind of burnt effect. If you need help doing gradients, please check out The Nailasaurus.
After the gradient was done, I used my favorite medium length striper brush to freehand on a maze pattern in Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!. This is the second time I've done this pattern, the first time being my purple, blue, and white version.
I really love the way that the three colors came together to form the base. The finishes of all of them came together perfectly and made a seamless shimmery gradient. I also like that you can see the tone of Nein! Nein! over the darkest color in the gradient. It fits in but still stands out.
The OPI Germany Collection is available now! You can find it at many professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 suggested retail per lacquer.
