Opal Nails

This week I wanted to try something new. I've been wearing an opal ring that I've had for ages lately... and I thought it would be really cool to make opal-esque nails. The bonus? They're super simple! I'm sure there are other ways to do this... but I went with the easy one.
  1. Apply 1 coat of CND Stickey base coat
  2. Apply 2 coats of China Glaze For Audrey (I will use a more sky-blue color next time, like China Glaze Carribbean Blue)
  3. Apply 1-2 coats (depending on the opal-ness) of Essie Shine of the Times
  4. Finish with 1 coat of CND Super Shiney top coat
After about four days of having this one, I decided to mix it up a bit and added Essie Matte About You over the top. It really creates a different effect and makes them look a little more like a true opal.

I'd also like to announce my Konad Kit winner! The lucky winner of the Konad Kit (and plate M78)...

Midnight Echo!

( selected #145 out of 149)

... But she didn't tell me if she's international or within the US/Canada... so if she is international I will do another re-draw! ...


  1. This is awesome!! So pretty.. I need to try this!

  2. Oooh, this is so cool looking! Love it. :)

  3. Very pretty! For Audrey is one of my favorite colors... Tiffany + Audrey Hepburn obviously equals amazing color! lol!
