Manicure #1: Textures and Duo-Tones

Hello Everyone | Recently I attended one of my sister's best friend's wedding last Friday and I told myself that I was going to do my nails, but I did not :( I ended up doing it on Saturday because my family and I were going to the Walima (Desi Wedding) ((Desi=Indian, Pakistani, Bengali, etc)). To keep it short both the Nikkah and Willima were amazing. The bride was stunning and the bride's sister were beautifully dressed.

I was too lazy to do actual nail designs, so I tried to mimic the deigns look by doing different colors and textures. I used all the colors above, surprisingly. My left hands and right hand have the same designs/colors, but on different nails. In total there were five different designs. 

Textured Nail // My textures nail, seen directly above, was this silver 'liquid sand' nail polish from OPI in the color Its Frosty Outside. I actually like outcome of the polish, it is not actually that rough as it seems. Next for my base, I used OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark which is a very dark plum color pushing on to black. One of my favorites! Over that I applied China Glaze's Crackle Glaze in Tarnished Gold. I was pretty pleased with the turn-out. For some random fun (*because I live life on the edge*) I applied a gold glitter polish over one of the liquid sand nails which is Sinful Colors All About You.

Duo-Tone Nails // For one of my nails, I did a dry-brushing technique using two polishes from Julep. One is Harlow which is a emerald green with a darker blue-green tones along with green reflexes. The second is Natalia which is just a polish mixed with ruby red and emerald green reflexes. My pinky is painted with Zoya's Justine which is just a metallic nude. Then with Sinful Colors Tame Me on top which is a olive-nude with purple reflexes. Then I just used the OPI Lincoln Park After Dark to paint half of the nail.

This post is my writer's block post, I have not been able to write anything because I have been sad. Anyways, Shameless Laila and the Blog Hop will have to wait. Thanks for the sweet comments.

Thanks for reading-XOXO

What kind of nails are you rocking?


  1. The henna on your hands is gorgeous! Definitely love the textured nails; I'm a bit sad to see that OPI has stopped selling their "shatter" top coats, but I'm a bit intrigued by the "sand" texture that they're pushing now. It's Frosty Outside has definitely got me thinking! x

    1. Thank you so much! I was never a fan of crackle, I got the set of three China Glaze polishes for like $3! You should try them, I am a fan of the opaque color!

  2. ooh those polishes are so nice!
