OPI Ink Suede featuring NAIL ART!

Good morning!  Hope everyone is fabulous!  We're having our LATE Christmas with my guys family, so ya for opening more presents!  Actually I'm really excited to see my niece open her presents.  She is just so fun!

So first things first with my pics.  Ugg!  I now feel like I need to invest sometime in making a lightbox.  Just when I think my pics look fine, I download them to find they are completely blurry....the pic below is the best I got of this polish by itself.

I'm sure I've professed my love to the OPI Suede's before.  I currently own three now including the above.  I will one day own all six of them, I KNOW it!  Y'all know I'm crazy about the micro glitters from China Glaze, well I feel the same way about these OPI Suede's.  That's why when I found OPI Ink on Ebay for pretty cheap, I snatched it up.

OPI Ink is a classic.  If you own the original (which I do, and don't think I've ever featured) you will understand why.  I found this looks much more blue on the nail than it does purple.  Now please understand that it does *actually* look purple, but my camera turned it to blue.  Ugg!

Also, I don't know why my camera wanted to give me lobster hands with this polish, cause it really doesn't look like that in real life!

Lookit me and successful stamping!  I recently ordered the Bundle Monster 2011 plates.  You might know my frustration with stamping.  I recently gave it another try (you might have seen on my Instagram account), and decided I needed to start trying again.  One of my frustrations is picking out color combinations.  But I'm sure I will get over that with more practice, and putting more thoughts into picking something out.

I used Urban Outfitter's Silver Holo for the snowflake stamps.  You can *kinda* see the holo effect in the pics above, but it is pretty shy.

Aren't you all proud of me!  Doing stamping and shit! lol!

I'm tellin you though, look out for We'll Always Have Paris Suede and Lincoln Park After Dark Suede...those two are BEGGING to come home with me!  I need to find them! : )


  1. Heck yeah I am proud of you lol!! It's a lovely combo i really love that opi!

  2. I love this manicure! your stamping is perfect, congratulations!!

  3. I understand your frustrations. I spend all day Thursday swatching and my camera just refuses to accurately capture purples, blues and teals. I just gave up and decided to try again later and if that doesn't work, then I guess I'll just have to upload my bad pictures. :(
    Either way, I love this look! I'd love to get my hands on the OPI suedes since I love matte finished so much!

  4. I'm so proud of you! The stamping looks beautiful! Really glad you are giving it another try :D

  5. Thank you! I see more stamping in my future.

  6. I think a lot of my frustrations is due to my lighting. My camera doesn't want to focus or something.

    Hopefully you can get your hands on the Suede's too, they are awesome!

  7. Thank you! Hopefully I can come up with better combinations so I won't feel so frustrated all the time.

  8. Well you certainly can't go wrong with holo stamping, so you are off to a great start. Plus you are past the hard part of getting it to stamp so time to enjoy :)
