This week I have a review on OPI’s Nail Envy Nail Strengthener and a simple abstract nail design to share with all of you. It’s great to do intricate designs on my nails, but sometimes I simply don’t have the time for that so I need to tone it down to some designs I can do in a jiffy. This is one of those designs and I think most people could do this themselves on their nails.
One of the things I like about this design is that you can pick whatever colours you like. I was actually trying to do a different design, which didn’t turn out, and ended up painting with the colours I had picked out for the other design. I started with a base colour of OPI’s My Dogsled is a Hybrid. I then took three different shades of brown and layered them on my nails, lightest to darkest, finishing with a black on top. To make the lines, simply wipe most of the polish off the brush and then swipe it across your nail in a bit of a curve. Lastly, I added the white dots to the base of my nails. I used my dotting tools but a toothpick works just as well for these. I’d recommend making the middle dots slightly larger and then make them smaller as you extend out to the middle of your nail.
I also have a quick review for you on OPI’s Nail Envy Nail Strengthener. This is a great way to harden your nails if you have trouble with thin fragile nails that break often. Nothing is more frustrating than breaking a nail after just getting them done, and here is a great solution. For this nail strengthener to work well you should apply two coats followed by one coast every other day for a week. After the week is up, remove the nail polish completely and start the process all over again and after a week or so you should start to see changes.
