Moody Purple Gradient with Splatter Studs


How about something a little moody today? For this look, I grabbed two of the new purple shades from the OPI Nordic collection and used them in a gradient, along with a bit of black for the tips. Then I added some black and white splatter studs to give the look some extra pizzaz.


I started with a base of OPI Do You Have This Color In Stock-holm?, the brightest of the purples from the collection. The middle shade in the gradient is OPI Viking In a Vinter Vonderland, and the tips are a black creme.

The splatter studs are from Serum No. 5. I stuck them into wet topcoat, and then sealed them in with another coat of topcoat.


I'm a big fan of these studs, and they provide a nice contrast to the deep richness of the gradient.
