Create your own nail color or design


When I'm tired of all the nail colors out there or just can't seem to find the color I want (like the rocker purple polish that Gwen Stephani had on during her last tour)....I just create my own! You can mix and match just about any color or if you're really artistic, get a small paint brush and draw a cool design. The point is, you don't have to replicate what I have below...just be creative and have fun with it! Sure there will be some mishaps but that's what nail polish remover is for. Happy experimenting!

Here are some examples, starting from the pinkie: Bottom coat is OPI-Alpine Snow/Top coat is Princesses Rule!; Bottom coat OPI-Light my sapphire/Top dot OPI-Alpine Snow; Bottom coat OPI-Italian Love Affair/Top coat OPI-Princesses Rule!; Bottom coat MAC-Nocturnelle/Top coat Nicole-Fanatical Fuchsia; Bottom coat is OPI-Lincoln Park at Midnight/Top coat is a glitter top coat called I love the Holidays!
