My favorite OPI showCASED! (pun intended)

Alright y'all this month has been ROUGH. No lie. I promise I've got lots of pics saved up now, editing and posting them was the difficult part. I made a pretty sweet purchase not too long ago: a phone case sporting one of my all-time favorite OPI colors You Don't Know Jaques! Have you seen this lovely color!? It's not new, and I've been a fan for about 4 years now. It was part of a 2008 collection La Collection de France. When I saw that there was a case available with this color I knew I had to have it. Okay here is the bottle of polish next to the case:


Of course I gotta have it on my nails too, so heres a neutral look I played around with:


So, this is my 2nd attempt at striping tape... a bit time consuming but so worth it! The off white is of course another must-have: OPI My Vampire Is Buff. Here's the bottle, case, and mani all together:


You can tell the bottle, case, and my actual nails painted with this polish all vary a bit in shade, but even still I freaking love this gray-taupe color. I also took some pictures in odd lighting throughout my house just for perspective.


Just in case you are wondering, I bought my case from here.

Okay y'all heres where things get rough... after a day or two I wanted to add to this look before I removed it with some nail art techniques I have been meaning to attempt... and let's just say you can tell its my first swing at floral art... 


Oh. Holy. Buckets. Im super critical of my own work so for me the flowers are a hot mess. But on the plus side they at least look like flowers...I think.

OPI My Vampire Is Buff is dotted on my pointer and middle fingers, I used China Glaze For Audrey and Sinful Colors Savage for the flowers, and I used China Glaze I'm With the Lifeguard, and NYC High Line Green for the leaves. My pinky is Milani Teal

Next time I try floral art I am going to let each layer dry completely before continuing with a new color. Other than that its just a steady hand and practice I think! Thanks for reading, do you own You Don't Know Jaques too? Have a great day!
