While some of the country is buried in snow, the rest of us have barely seen an inch. We finally got a few flakes here, and I was ready to do a snowy look.
For this look, I used Color Club Blue Heaven, OPI Sheer Tints I Can Teal You Like Me, and Wet ‘n’ Wild Hallucinate. There wasn’t enough sunshine to be able to tell, but the Color Club is a holo, and the Wet ‘n’ Wild is an iridescent glitter. (I also used a white stamping polish that doesn’t have any brand.)
I began by painting all of my nails with one coat of Blue Heaven. Then, I stamped my first layer of snowflakes. Next, was a layer of the Sheer Tints, followed by more snowflakes, followed by Sheer Tints, then a final layer of snowflakes that were topped off by the glitter polish.
I took turns experimenting with these plates and different stampers, so there are different snowflakes for every layer. These plates are from Born Pretty, Bundle Monster, and Pueen.
The finished product was a frosty look that perfectly matched the frosty weather. I hope you like!

I recently was in a wedding that was using purple as the color, and did I match that ish or what? LOL
I began by painting all of my nails with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City. This is hands down, my favorite silver polish. I actually like it underneath the Color Paints much better than the polish that OPI released with them. After the silver base dried, I painted all of my nails with one coat of OPI Color Paints Purple Perspective.
After that dried, I used a Bundle Monster plate, Konad stamper and scraper, and white stamping polish from the Born Pretty Store. I chose the rose type of image and stamped all of the nails with white.
Originally, I was going to leave my nails purple and white to match the bouquet, but I thought it was too much, and that’s where the OPI Sheer Tints Don’t Violet Me Down (pictured above) came into play. One coat of that over all of the nails toned down the white perfectly. And, as a subtle accent, I used a heart rhinestone on each of my ring fingers.
I was honestly very happy with how these turned out. They matched, and were actually pretty easy to do. It makes me want to match other Color Paints with Sheer Tints. 🙂
Thanks for reading! Come back soon!
I wanted to do something colorful as the days get cooler and the opportunities to show off any polish on your toes are becoming fewer and fewer.
For the base of all of the nails I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep. I really like this silver because it goes on smoothly and is opaque in one coat. After that, I topped off each nail with one of the OPI Sheer Tints. Starting with the pink they are, Be Magentale With Me, I Can Teal You Like Me, Don’t Violet Me Down, and I’m Never Amberrassed. And in case that wasn’t enough, I topped every toe off with Funky Fingers So Fetch!. The Funky Fingers has pink, yellow, green, white, and black hex glitters, along with blue stars. When I found this polish, it was hard not to grab the others because I really do like the movie Mean Girls.
The finished product was colorful, but nothing over the top. I actually thought it was a nice way to get color for the fall without being full on neon.
Do you like the sheer tints? Or have the color paints taken over?
