Aztec Tribal Nails - Stamping with Apipila P1

Happy Sunday! I'm taking a break from pink and wanted to try something a little different. For this look I used Apipila P1 image plate. 

Base colors: 
- blue: Fingerpaints Blissfully Blue
- peach: China Glaze Peach Keen
- green: Avon Jade
- black stamping polish: Finger Paints Black Expressionism

I was originally going to use Klean Colors black, which is also great for stamping, but it dried much too fast for this look. 

I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!

OPI Launches Peanuts Limited Edition Nail Lacquers for Halloween 2014 - Press Release

Peanuts by OPI brings to life Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters for Halloween 2014. Inspired by “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” the four new limited edition nail lacquer shades include seasonal yellow and black crèmes, as well as two black-based glitter hues.
“‘It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ is a classic, beloved film,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador.  “Peanuts by OPI celebrates the fun, youthful nature of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus and Snoopy with four limited edition nail lacquer shades designed to capture the spirit of Halloween. With two crème and two glitter options, you can switch between a cheery yellow or chic black look, or try adding a layer of glitter for a unique finish.”  
Peanuts by OPI includes the following shades:

Good Grief!
The sunny yellow of Charlie Brown’s favorite t-shirt.

Where’s My Blanket???
Linus awaits the Great Pumpkin in this orange and black glitter.

This stormy black is no match for Lucy’s raven hair.

To Be or Not To Beagle
Snoopy’s happy-dance of colors in a joyful glitter.

            Each of the four shades is also available in the Little Peanuts mini pack, which is sold with ten nail decals ranging from popular Peanuts phrases like “Good Grief!” and “Pow!” to sketches of Snoopy and the signature squiggle of Charlie Brown’s shirt.
“These stickers offer a playful, kitschy way to add instant art to nails,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “My favorite decal pays tribute to Snoopy’s many kisses – ‘Smak!’”

Peanuts nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide Brush for the ultimate in application.

So Fierce!

I've had this beauty in my collection for a while and only decided to whip it out recently. Who can't fall in love with a name like So Fierce. But the color is what first got my attention. Sporting a fuchsia base with light blue and gold glitter and micro shimmer. The neon looses it's effect once applied over a creme polish but it's still beautiful.

 I usually only use the Insta-Dri's for stamping but I decided to try this as a base. I applied one coat over Berry Sweet. A dusty red/berry creme that stains like it's nobody's business. 

I love how this turned out!

Nail of the Day: Baker Street

Tonight I'm sporting Nails Inc. Baker Street. Part of me wanted to compare it to Milani's Blue Print and I must say they are extremelllllly close. I think Blue Print may have a tad bit more purple, but it's hard to notice the difference.

WnW Coast to Coast, Nails Inc Baker Street, Milani Blue Print (comparison)

I personally prefer the formula of Baker Street. It went on like butter in two coats and cleaned up like a dream. My perfect polish for the night!

Thanks for stopping by :)
