Just Another Mani(c) Monday...

NOPI Green Up Your Act was recently released for the TARGET exclusive Something About Color Collection.  This new shade is a lovely murky grey toned army green creme.  The formula isn't think or gooey and is opaque in two coats.  Drying time for this lacquer was quick and it dries super glossy (no top coat was used in the photos below).

For fun I paired Green Up Your Act with NOPI My Lifesaver for a free-handed diagonal mani.  My Lifesaver is a minty green creme that takes two coats to be opaque and is from the Justin Bieber One Less Lonely Girl Collection.  This lacquer is thicker than Green Up Your Act but also dries super glossy.

To step this mani up I topped it all off with a coat of OPI Fireflies!  I love using Fireflies as a topper to bring that extra something and it worked so well with these green cremes.  The iridescent flashes really brought out the contrast of the greens and helped to smooth everything out.









Disclosure:  This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.

  4. Cute nails! wish I could paint my nails like that, but unfortunately when I try and do something remotely intricate I end up looking like a character out of Harry Potter.
