- OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
- NOPI Virtuous Violet (base color)
- OPI Teenage Dream (glitter)
- OPI Houston We Have a Purple (jelly/sorbet)
- NOPI Top Coat Plus
First, I did one thin coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat. Once that was completely dry I applied two thin coats of NOPI Virtuous Violet. I love this blurple purple and its a Nicole by OPI classic shade!!! Its a blue based purple hue with a super smooth application, excellent gloss, and awesome wear. This color is still available through Target.com, it was released quite some time ago as I have had my bottle since 2007.
For the second step I waited until my base color dried I applied two thin coats of OPI Teenage Dream. This lacquer is jam packed with glitter suspended in a pink jelly. The pink works well over a wide range of colors making this a must have for every collection.
Third, I waited for the glitter to dry then I added one coat of the jelly/sorbet OPI Houston We Have a Purple. A jelly/sorbet lacquer is saturated with color like a creme but has a translucent base and glossier finish than all other lacquers. The jelly/sorbet finish contains no shimmer, glitter, or flecks.
Finally I applied one coat of NOPI Top Coat Plus and voila!! I love how the color changes in the pictures from blue to purple and the sparkle is amazing!!
