Halloween and OPI’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service #NOTD
If you’ve ever wondered why I don’t do pictorial nail art, you’re about to see why. I’m just terrible at it. I wanted to do something Halloween themed for trick or treating tonight, but I started doing it just before I had to run out the door for a “harvest party” at preschool. So I ended up slapping on a couple of coats of orange and using a fine-tipped sharpie for the detail. Its….. it’s messy. It’s not pretty. But it will be dark when we’re out later, so I’ll live with it.
Let’s look at what I had going on before the pumpkin attack. This is three coats of OPI’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service from the 2012 Skyfall collection. It’s an amazing lacquer. It applies easily, and at quick glance looks like a steely-gray foil/glitter. But when it catches the light it skews purple, with incredible yellow and green and blue sparkles. It has already earned a place in my top-ranked most favorite polishes.
That ball right there is my newest rock specimen. It’s known as Tiger Iron, which is composed of striations of tiger eye (the yellow bit), red jasper, and black hematite. It’s quite heavy.
The stamping was a little too subtle in this case, and it was only visible in low light on extreme off-angles. The color is nicely complementary, but nearly invisible when viewed directly.
