Let me get to the point of the story. While my family was over yesterday I got to paint their nails! I painted my cousin Chelsea's nails with the DS Coronation color I swatched yesterday, however I didn't get pictures of them. Then, I painted my cousin Sophia's nails with an LSU Tiger theme. GO TIGERS! It didn't come out just like I would have liked it to, but it was alright. And lastly I painted my nanny's nails with DS Reserve. Oh, and I painted my mom's nails with Shootout at the O.K. Coral but she refuses to let me take pictures of her nails.
For Sophia's nails I used a purple by Forever 21 (they don't name their polishes specifically). On her accent nail I used a base of OPI's Need Sunglasses? and for the stripes I used OPI's Funky Dunkey and came back on top of that with the purple by Forever 21.

On to my nanny's nails! OPI's DS Reserve is a stunning pink filled with lots of shimmer and a little bit of holo.
I almost forgot about my nails! I painted them with OPI's Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees the day before yesterday. By time I photographed them yesterday, I had some tip wear due to removing polish from other peoples nails and what not. It's a gorgeous charcoal that builds up with two coats. I know some people see blue in it or something? I don't see it so much. Maybe it's just that I wasn't in the natural light. But I love this much more than a regular black, because that leaves staining and is normally messy to work with!
AANDD! I was going to take a picture of outside for y'all, to show you the weather we were having, and when I opened the door...my Forever21 package was laying on the porch! I was beyong excited! The estimated delivery date wasn't until September 6th! And I couldn't believe they'd deliver during a Tropical Storm! Haha.
|Can y'all see the rain in this one? I never realized how hard it is to capture rain in a picture! And of course there's no way to capture the wind. Hehe. So just imagine wind + rain.|
|The actual names are Sparkling Red, Shimmering Purple, and Shimmering Turquoise.|
Sorry for the long, pic heavy post! I hope you like everything I showed you! Let me know what you think--especially about those Forever 21 polishes!
