**Pic Heavy** Nationwide Nail Supply | More Glam & Glits + OPI Shrek (The colors I had to have)


Of course I went back after playing around with the Moonstone nail decorations, and I picked up some other colors.
The last few times I stopped by there, I skipped on the Shrek Collection by OPI, but after so many swatches of this fun collection I realized I needed the Bright and Vivid Colors.

This is what I picked up:

Front to Back:  OPI's Funky Dunkey and G&G's Sugilite, OPI's Who The Shrek Are You? and G&G's Ruby, OPI's Ogre-The-Top Blue and G&G's Aquamarine

The lucky three.  :o)

Glam & Glits

Play time!!

On my left hand I used Ogre-The-Top Blue:

 On my right hand is Funky Dunkey:

 Finally...a touch of contrasting sparkle!
I used Sugilite and Ruby on Ogre-The-Top Blue to create a diamond.
I'm right-handed, but man this design is much more crooked than the one on my right hand.  Apparently my left hand is steadier when putting a little glam on.  :oP

My right hand has Aquamarine and Ruby on Funky Dunkey.
Ahh...Much better.

I do enjoy the consistency of these.  The first coat was a little streaky, but the second coat made everything smooth like butter (Or liquid Caramel...Mmmm).  

My husband had the fan on, and it was making each application dry so quickly I had to keep applying a clear coat to stick the diamonds on.

I always use two coats of Seche Clear, and this stops any polish from staining my nails (At least on me it works).
After those two, I use OPI's Dry & Brittle Nail Envy because I have thin razor-like nails.  :(  Good for scratching my back at least.
Two coats of color, and then I top them off with a nice thick coat of Seche Vite.  Sometimes I use Out The Door.
I used an additional coat of Seche vite over the diamonds as some still had edges I could feel.

Until next time!

Thanks everyone! So far this base polish combo has really helped out with my soft peeling nails, and the Seche Clear really does help out with blocking any sort of staining whatsoever.

I am a big fan of these three OPI Shrek colors!
