OPI Gwen Stefani Skittle Nail Art



Hi all! Today's post is of a nail art skittle manicure I did using some polishes form the OPI Gwen Stefani collection.
I posted my review & swatches on the blog yesterday, you can check it out here!

You can see a breakdown of what I did to each nail below! Hope you guys like it!

Pointer

For this nail I started off with 4 In The Morning, then I added on a large diamond stud from the Over & Over A-Gwen set.

I used a little too much glue and the excess is a little noticeable in the pictures but it wasn't in person.

Middle

On this nail I used Love.Angel.Music.Baby. as the base color and using I Sing In Color and Over and Over A-Gwen .

I free-handed the leopard print with a dotting tool.

Ring

For this nail I used a nail art brush and Over and Over A-Gwen & 4 In the Morning to do a sort of color block manicure. Then I added six black crystals from the Over and Over A-Gwen set.  It looks a little funky top putting topcoat over it, so I guess maybe you shouldn't topcoat over studs and gems? I don't really use them enough to know these things! : /


Pinky

The pinky nail has I Sing In Color as the base coat and then I framed it with Love.Angel.Music.Baby.

Then I added a single gold stud again from the Over and Over A-Gwen set!

I think the Over & Over A-Gwen boxed set is a really fun starter kit for those you want to try out nail art with gems and studs! It's a nice way to try out different kinds without having to buy a ton of each without knowing if you'll like them or not.
Not to mention the perfect formula of Over & Over A-Gwen! The Over & Over A-Gwen boxed set retails for $14.95.

And a completely random side note - I just finished Dexter yesterday. I don't even know how I feel right now D:
Season 8 seemed all over the place, I still love the show though. I stopped watching it a few seasons ago and caught up when I realized that it's on Netflix. What should I watch now?!?? lol Also I can't believe that it's February!
