Make A Change

Sorry I was out of town this weekend and missed Mani(c) Monday!!  I wanted to share with you how I changed my mani to create a different look each day I was away.  I started out on Saturday by wearing NOPI Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam, a glossy smokey teal creme.  While this shade isn't unique, the formula was excellent and I could have almost gotten away with one coat but I used two.

To change this mani up for Sunday, I added $OPI Matte Top Coat.  I love this, it's the best matte top coat I've tried!!  It's super easy to work with, it leaves no streaks behind since it's self leveling, and it doesn't chip!!  Oh and it only takes one coat matte to perfection.

On Monday I wanted to bring on some sparkle since it was a gloomy day.  What better way to that then to do a gradient with NOPI Rainbow In The S-Kylie?  Is this shade a dupe for OPI Rainbow Connection?  YES!  I used one coat over the whole nail and two coats on the tips.  I really loved how the gloss came back like it was never matte.

There are so many colors in NOPI Rainbow In The S-Kylie!!  Orange, pink, green, silver, gold, purple and blue.  Am I missing any?  How do you extend/change your mani with out starting over?

Disclosure: This lacquer was purchased by The Lacquer Factor.
