Fairy Nails

I really love how this mani turned out! It's sweet and special without being too flashy. For this mani, I used one of my favourite nail colours out there; OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender. I know the name denotes a purple-y colour, but I find it can actually come off as the perfect pale, chalky pink. Perhaps this depends on your skin tone (I tend to be pinkish myself) but, either way, it is a beautiful colour and also looks great as a pedi. Actually, I searched for this specific type of pink for a long time before stumbling across this one. I never thought to try it because of it's name - do not judge a polish by it's name, folks!
After a base coat and two coats of Lucky, I dabbed on a silver glitter on the tips and created a gradient toward the cuticle; getting sparser as I went (soon, we will have a detailed How-To post on this). The silver glitter I used is a great one that I highly recommend, Tiara by Orly.
In fact, I actually tried another mani with this silver and, with 3 coats, the sparkliness could knock your socks off (post to follow)!

Then, I finished it off with our favourite top coat (post to follow!) and voila! Fairy nails!
Thanks for checking in, see you soon!

  1. These are my fave nails. They are so magical but at a glance they look quite soft and neutral. LOVE
