NOTD: Sinful Colors Neon Splat! Appliques

Hey beauties! Wanted to quickly share my nail of the day.  This is my first time trying Sinful Colors nail stickers. The package states they have UV cured technology and are made to last. They are surprisingly thin and flexible but started to lift after a couple of hours.

They did last 6 days and could possibly go longer, but I'm in the mood for a change.  To help with longevity I lifted the top of the stickers (near the nail tip) and applied clear polish underneath then added a top coat on the entire sticker.  

Here's what the packaging looks like and the true color of the stickers. They do loose their shine after applied so a topcoat is helpful.

I found them at my local Walgreen's for $1.99.  Not a bad deal for a dramatic look.

Thanks for stopping by :)

OPI Color Paints Swatches and Review

Today I have swatches of the OPI Color Paint collection! They are "blendable" polishes that are supposed to melt easily together, to allow you to use your nails as a canvas and create easy nail art.  They are designed to be applied over a silver base, (which makes the color brighter) but I prefer the jelly-effect and thought I would share what they look like without the silver basecoat.

The colors are really pretty and represent almost every color of the rainbow.  I used 3 coats for each polish except the silver and yellow.  The finish is jelly-ish but not as sheer as a jelly. I was hoping the darker colors would be more sheer but unfortunately they are not.  I may try to make my own sister jellies by mixing with sheer polish.

Indigo Motif

Landscape Artist

Chromatic Orange

Pen & Pink

Purple Perspective

 Magenta Muse

Turquoise Aesthetic

Primarily Yellow

Silver Canvas Base Coat

 I really love the look of Primarily Yellow and Pen & Pink and wish I could achieve the same effect with the darker colors, but they are trickier to work with and can come off patchy or streaky (when trying to achieve a sheer look).  They do look great if wearing as a regular polish though and are extremely shiny.

Overall these are a lot of fun to play with. The colors blend really well together.  It does take some practice to get the hang of using these, the formula is more gooey/sticky than regular polishes.  I was able to create a very easy look by applying a base coat and simply dropping dabs of a second color on top.  

The Color Paint Collection will be available very soon at retailers that carry OPI.
