Perfect Pair: OPI Do You Take Lei Away? & Pure Ice Poppin Bottles

Perfect Pair OPI Do You Take Lei Away & Pure Ice Poppin BottlesNude polish is all the rage. And even though I am (somewhat reluctantly) on board with the nude manicure trend I’m always trying to add something to my manicures to make them a bit more unique and interesting.

The approach I took for this manicure was to add some glitter. But instead of doing an accent nail or a gradient I decided to try color blocking (if you will…) the glitter.

I was already wearing OPI Do You Take Lei Away? and wanted to keep the manicure looking clean and nude. So, I reached for one of my favorite glitters ever; Pure Ice Poppin Bottles.

To get this look I blocked off the bottle half of my nail with tape then applied a heavy handed coat of Poppin Bottles to the top half of my nails. The result was a lovely nude manicure with just a little bling. The glitter was subtle (which was of course what I was going for) but really made the manicure feel different.

As always, there are swatches under the jump!

  1. I really like how you did the glitter. I am slowly, but surely, coming around to liking a few nudes in certain tones. I already like doing the glitter sparingly, like you did. Combining the two gives the mani a little oomph!

What do you think?
