Glam Patchwork

Morning! Today as promised I have some nail art using the three Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors that I reviewed yesterday here. When I was done my swatching for the day I loved All is Glam, All is Bright so much that I decided to keep it on as a full manicure. I had been wearing that for awhile and thought it would be awesome to showcase these 3 polishes together since AIGAIB flashes both blue and red!

I took some striping tape and one nail at a time created a criss cross pattern. For some reason the roll of striping tape I grabbed was not sticking to my nail so this step was a slight pain. Once it all had finally stuck to my nail I took Keeping Up With Santa and Deck the Dolls and using just the polish brush painted inside some random diamonds. I intentionally didn't fill in every diamond as I wanted the sparkle to really shine through. I kind of like the way it looks a little unfinished!

Each ended up different and I kind of wish I went back and redid my index nail as I wasn't really feeling how that one came out, BUT since there was the whole non-sticking striping tape situation I left it as is. I think my thumb ended up being my favourite looking nail.

I really like how pigmented these shades are for nail art purposes. Especially using them over glitter I thought it might be a total disaster, but they both worked perfectly!

These shades are great for nail art and I will for sure be reaching for them again in the future. You can seen my full swatches and review of these polishes here.

What do you think of my Glam Patchwork design as I've decided to name it!

Hope you're getting as excited about the Holiday shades as I am!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
