OPI New Orleans Nail Art

Disclosure Statement

I did a few nail arts with the New Orleans Collection so thought I’d do a blog post as not all of them will be posted on my Instagram account.

 

A Gradient – using Suzy Nails New Orleans, Got Myself into a Jam-balaya and Crawfishin’ for a Compliment. So easy to work with and I love the result

Then I stamped over it and did such a bad job. It could have been lovely, grrrrr!!

Stamped using Uberchic Beauty 7-02 and Sinful Colors SMW

 

She’s a Bad Muffuletta – I love this! I saw this technique on a @ohmygoshpolish’s youtube chanel. Basically its a decal made by black and white polish scraped together over a vinyl stuck onto my Ubermat.

Urban Nail Art Black and White stamping polish and vinyls from Xroma Polish and Vinyls

 

Humid-tea – I love it when a regular polish stamps! The image is only one half of the nail and I reversed it using my clear jelly stamper. How did we manage without them?!

Let Me Bayou a Drink – and another one that stamps. Sounding like the record is stuck 😂 This is my favourite mani, tone on tone and so subtle and very work appropriate.

Got Myself into a Jam-balaya – I’m not sure about this one. I love it one minute then hate the next!

Reverse stamped using Born Pretty Store BPL-029 and Mundodeunas White and dry brushed with OPI Color Paints

I’m Sooo Swamped – I have a relationship with vinyls that is pure hatred. Curvy nails don’t play nicely with them. Then after doing the red mani ⬆️ I tried doing this one on my ubermat as a decal. Not perfect but much better. I love this pattern but the little devils won’t come off the backing. In sheer frustration I whipped one off at 90 miles an hour and success! So my tip is just get violent with them.
