Accent nail fail


Not my best effort on either nail painting, or on colour selection for an accent nail. It actually works a bit better in person as the accent colour Illamasqua Glitterati has holographic sparkles in the deep raspberry jelly that sparkle in a colour quite close to the main nails. The trick with accent nails is usually to either go close to the same shade, or a contrasting colour but I think this combo struggled by being close but not quite close enough in shade.

Now the main nail colour, funny story, is from the Justin Bieber collection for Nicole by OPI. It’s called OMB “Oh My Bieber”. It gets so many compliments, it has a really lively bright pink shimmer and has a lot of depth. It’s so embarassing to tell me what the colour is when they ask though! At least I have resident teenagers to claim ownership of the colour though, rather than fessing up to buying it myself.

I love the colour, but the downside NOPI brush sucks – its stubby and hard to use. And this is in the older style bottle which is hard to store. But the colour and formula are great so that this is one of the colours we have actually nearly used up.
