Hello lovelies!
I have today off from work, yay! My goal is to spend all day working on nail art and blogging related things since I’ve been falling behind with both of those, whoops…
Anywho, onto the nails!

I really love wearing dark polish when I have short nails like this!

Here’s what I used:
I’ve noticed that my job randomly will stock old bottles of OPI, kind of like they randomly found a bottle lost in the back and just put it out the shelf. Our OPI display is mostly reds and pinks, and the most recent release that we have is the Mariah Carey 2013 Holiday collection….yeah, just a little behind. But I’ve been checking the display every week and looking for odd ball polishes and this is one of the ones I found! Live And Let Die is from the 2012 Holiday Skyfall collection!

Because my nails are so short, I was able to reach full opacity with only 1 coat of Live And Let Die,  +1 for baby nails! I then freehanded on the wavy lines with acrylic paint after I came across this pattern. I was tempted to add the little leaves in but I like the base color so much that I left it alone.

The shimmer didn’t really show up in the photos but you could definitely see it in person. This polish is a very welcome addition to my collection!
Here’s that challenge graphic:
And a song for today:
The Lonely Forest – Arrows
