Nail art for you todayyyy.
If you don't know what POTC means - it's Pirates of the Caribbean! This mani was done with three shades from the POTC collection from OPI.
This mani made me sad that I only bought the minis of these colors. :'(
Before I show it to you, I want to point out that I took this design from Bright Lights Big Color! She recently posted a bunch of nail art pictures and I saw this manicure and knew I had to do it.
Her colors were in a different order but I had to use Mermaids Tears first as that is my only full sized bottle so I didn't mind doing my entire nail with it :P
OPI - Mermaids Tears, Planks A Lot, and Sparrow Me The Drama.
I stamped from Konad m57 with Color Club - Worth The Risque. In Landa's photo the stamping wasn't too harsh and I didn't want mine to be either, which is why I went with the less opaque silver polish for stamping.
If you're familiar with these colors you know that they photograph a little too brightly - so here is a photo without flash that shows the true muted tones.
I liked this mani so much that I've had it on for like 5 days now. I even cut down my nails, and half of the pink is gone, but I'm still wearing it. Haha!
I didn't use tape between the lines - I am too impatient for that and I always end up doing the tape too soon and pull off the polish.
So this was freehanded, but it was with the mini polishes so the freehanding was probably a bit easier with the small brush. Here's what it looked like before the stamping:
A bit Easter-egg-like I guess, but I still love it.
I'm going to some beauty supply stores meant for professionals today, I wonder what I'll return home with?
