I still haven’t worked through all of the OPI Germany collection, so last night I laid down three coats of OPI Don’t Talk Bach To Me; while purple will remain my forever favorite, these limey greens are an crazy close second.  Woke up and realized I didn’t have time to get all “let’s spend five hours painting something” so opted instead to play with some greys and a liner brush I hadn’t used before (not MASH, not the most awesome bristles…).  Started with a swipe of grey on each nail, added a blob of white to the color, followed with another, repeat until there’s no more nail (it’s sort of killing me that these are still so short, apparently I gotta up the vitamins).  I like the effect; it’s subtle, simple to execute, and turns a plain color into something with a little more dimension.

    Simple, but very cool looking. I love easy to accomplish designs that are still interesting to look at.

    Haven’t seen many posts from you on the ol’ Facey-book lately. Been busy? : )
