OPI Washington DC + water decals | nail art

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog post about some new nail art decorations and today I finally got around to try the water decals. It was surprisingly easy to apply them and they look quite cute on the nails. I paired the water decals with some autumnal polishes from the OPI Washington DC collection.

In the picture you can see that the water decal on my ring finger looks a little bit grainy. However, in reality it doesn’t bother me that much and usually you don’t look at your nails that close anyway. From index finger to pinky I wear: Freedom of Peach, Squeaker of the House and Yank my Doodle from the OPI Washington DC collection. If you want to see more swatches and nail art using this collection you can check out this blog post, this blog post or my review.

The water decals are from Bornprettystore and can be purchased here. The polishes in the OPI Washington DC collection can be found on e.g. eBay.com or Eleven.se.

ORLY Halo swatch & nail art

I’ve found a new favorite glitter polish – ORLY Halo. It’s a gorgeous polish that works beautifully as an accent nail or even on all nails for a special occasion.

The polish has a mix of smaller and bigger silver glitter pieces and some small gold glitter pieces. The combo of silver and gold makes this polish stunning!

Here I applied two coats on my naked nail to get full coverage. If you prefer to use the polish as a glitter top coat over another polish, you should only apply one coat. Remember to apply a peel off base underneath to make the polish removal much easier!

I love using glitter polishes as an accent nail. It’s so simple, but yet so effectful. Here I paired it with 821 Green Planet from IsaDora.

Depend Glam Rock | nail art

Last week the Depend Glam Rock collection was launched. It is a gorgeous autumn collection with loads of blue, purple, green and brown shades. So far I’ve tried two of the polishes, the first one is a dark green, glittery matte shade (no 496) and the second one is a shimmery, metallic orange/brown shade (no 493). Both of them are lovely autumn polishes!

To make the stripes in this design I used some nail stripes from Depend. I think the color combo turned out quite nice and I really like mixing different textures. I was actually surprised by the green polish, it doesn’t look matte in the bottle but then it turns into a gorgeous matte finish on the nails. Matte + glitter is a big favorite of mine so it was a very good surprise.

The Depend Glam Rock collection is in stores now and you can find at Lyko, Cubus etc. The polishes retail for 25 SEK, a real bargain!
