OPI Spotted and Colour Club Halo Hues

As you might have noticed I have quite a stash to choose from and so I only tend to wear things again if I really like them, or I mess them up the first time and feel I should give them another chance to impress me. Today's post is a little bit of both.

This mani is an older post that I had stored for you, if you read my blog post yesterday than you'll know that I'm doing the 3 day Pure Oil Naked Challenge. It's going well and I'll be posting my results on Thursday.

So you may remember my first attempted at OPI Spotted? If not you can see the post here. Well that was my first time and I tried really hard not to use too much and just end up with black nails, well I had the opposite problem and didn't use enough so I got drag marks instead. Hmmmm, back to the drawing board.

This time I decided to try Spotted over the Color Club 2012 Halo Hues. I stared with a base of randomly placed Halo Hues so I could get a multicoloured effect through the Spotted. I just painted on lines and blobs (yes that is a technical term!) and the applied a thin layer of Spotted over the top. I was careful to float my HK Girl topcoat over the top so I didn't smudge

I really quite liked this mani, the pictures don't quite do it justice but the holo really shone out behind the Spotted. I'd like to try it again with some brighter holo's next time!

    1. Hi Anastasia,
      Yes it's a really nice one to have. You might find that the Layla Bubbly Effects is cheaper and easier to find.

  3. Looks like a beautiful stained glass window.....


Thanks so much for commenting. I took off the annoying verification thing so I thought I better add some moderation to avoid spam messages, you know what the internet is like!

Anyway, it's great to get comments and I'll verify them as soon as they get to me.
