I have a new nail look using nail polish appliques (my fave nail thing) to show you today. A while ago, I was on the hunt for OPI's Pure Lacquer Apps from their James Bond inspired collection, and couldn't find them any where in stores. I took to amazon, and was happy to find the the ones I had been searching and searching for. I snagged "Floating Dragon" because I loved the dragons against the red base. I thought they looked so elegant. Here they are paired up with Loreal "Amazon's Flash", a gold shimmer nail polish, to create a red and gold ruffian look.
I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed with how transparent the nail apps are. Since I had not seen any blogger reviews on them, I wasn't aware that they were going to be like this. They are almost jelly-like in finish when you compare them to nail polish. Once applied, it's a bit hard to tell that there are dragons on the nail appliqués; one person thought they were leopard spots at first! Oh, well! These really would have been a hit with me if the dragons were more visible... At least the overall look is nice!
Who would have thought that I would have a some-what nail appliques fail? I guess nail fails happen to all of us at some point! If you want to give OPI's nail polish appliques a try , which I am normally a huge fan of, search for them on amazon and your local Ulta.
What do you think about this nail look? I'll see ya next time with a new, and hopefully more successful post! LOL
