Alice is Absolutely Gorgeous!

Hey there readers! Happy Hump Day!! I have a few blog posts written up ahead of time, but after doing this mani last night, I knew I had to bump it up to this morning's post! I just love how it turned out!! :D

I saw this on Nailside a week and a half ago and knew I'd have to try it once my OPI Absolutely Alice came in. I changed the base color and didn't matte it, but it's the same idea. Of course, this was my first time trying her explosion tape design and mine didn't really look the right way, but I still like it for my first try.

 In the sun
 In the shade.

On the closeup of my thumb, you can see it's not perfect, but pretty good considering it was just glitter!

I used:
Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
Base Color: China Glaze Flyin' High
Glitter: OPI Absolutely Alice
Top Coat: Poshe

I love how this turned out. Absolutely Alice is AMAZING! I am so happy I was able to buy it(since it's harder to find now without paying a ton of money). :) What do you think? Thanks for reading!
Pin It!

  14. Oooh, I love it!! I love the look of tape mani's but I'm way too much of a perfectionist, and just don't have the patience! I think that's kinda a boon when it comes to a tape mani, lol!!

  15. I love this! It reminds me of Katy perry's song Firework lol.
