Explosion mani attempt :)



Hi! Today I have some nail art! I tried to re-create nailside's explosion mani. Mine came out more like dinosaur teeth..but I still like it! Haha.


The lines definitely aren't perfect but that tape was a PITA and I wasn't redoing anything, lol.. definitely satisfied for a first attempt however!! I actually did my right hand better but.. my right hand is a leper that wishes not to be photographed. :)


I used O.P.I Big Hair..Big Nails (red jelly) & nOPI Give Me The 1st Dance (silver foil) & I loved this combo! I really love the jellies from the Texas collection (or sorbet's) and I wish they would do more of them ASAP.

  4. I think you did a great job!
    I had a theory on the tape that maybe those static cling postit notes might work better, They adhere but they dont stick if you know what I mean. I have to pick some up to check.

  9. Ahh these look great!! A good tip is to use that semi-opaque sellotape but before sticking it to your nails, stick it to your skin 2 or 3 times so it doesn't ruin the polish that's already on your nails.

    Also I've not heard of nOPI.. is it a special collection by OPI? I would love your polish but in gold!!!
