Opal Nails

First of all, I'm sorry you guys! As I've mentioned many times before, I'm back at school and spending a lot of my time studying, eating, and sleeping (a.k.a. having no life). I have 3 midterms this week and another one in two weeks. On top of all that, I have two weekly quizzes. (Isn't that grand?) So long story short, I'll now sporadically post short(-ish) posts.

Today, I have some opal-inspired nails! I have been getting into opal jewelry lately because I think it is so pretty! I really love how opals are translucent and reflect rainbows. They were also supposed to be an alternative to Wet 'n Wild Fergie High Mountain, but that didn't work out. :/ However, I did find my favorite glitter layering because of this mani! :D

I used Essie Marshmallow as my base because I wanted a soft appearance. I then layered 1 coat each of Jordana Lunar Lights and NYX Girls Glided Glitter. I think Gilded Glitter may either have a tinted base or glitter that melted into the clear base. However, I do like the effect of the tinted base because it mimics the nature of opals - no two are alike.

What do you guys think? I'd love to know!

Also, I've changed the font and placement of my watermark again. Is it too distracting? Should I just leave my watermark in the bottom left corner again?

See you guys on the other side of the day!


P.S. Changed my nail shape back to squovals! (These pictures were from the vault.) So, so happy to have them again. No matter how much I tried, I couldn't get into oval/round nails.
