NAILS | Purple Glitter Gradient with Nicole by OPI

I have been seeing a couple of people post Nicole by OPI polishes and it reminded me of how much I missed this fun, often sparkly brand. They disappeared suddenly around 2014-2015, but I managed to keep up with collections and always grabbed a couple of shades when they went on sale along with a few collections through PR. One thing I loved about NOPI were the celebrity collaborations with everyone from Justin Bieber to Carrie Underwood to the Kardashians. The names of the polishes were always very tongue-in-cheek and the shades more adventurous than the usual OPI collections. I will slowly be making my way through the drawer of NOPIs that I have along with the Sephora by OPI polishes! 

I had a very bad nail break while loading the dishwasher since the last ManiMonday and ended up having to file my nails down quite a bit to hide the break. Since I did not have the surface area for elaborate nail art, a glitter gradient seemed safe and pretty.

I started off with two coats of NOPI Am I Making Myself Claire? from the Modern Family collection, which is a creamy pale mauve.

I then dabbed on the glitter gradient with NOPI Inner Sparkle* from the Selena Gomez collection concentrating the glitter at the tips of the nails. I love this multi-shaped glitter of pink, purple and gold because it looks fun, yet regal.

Have a great weekend everyone! I'll hopefully get a chance to blog, but lately I've just been wanting to nap and nestle with a blanket on the couch watching The Office. That should be ok once in awhile, right?
