Oscars Nails
« on: March 02, 2014, 05:05:19 PM »
I love the Academy Awards broadcast every year, mostly for the fashion. DH and I will have an Oscars supper tonight in front of the TV: raw veggies with dip, deviled eggs, chicken-Parmesan "lollipops" (Trader Joe's), popcorn  :popcorn:, and champagne. He's not as into the Oscars as I am, so he'll probably have one eye on his laptop, but he's a good sport about watching it with me.

To get into the spirit for this evening, I did a mani using OPI "DS Magic" with OPI "Black Onyx" tips:
  • Complexion: NW30-35, thin dry skin
  • Eyes: Blue-gray/aqua-gold
  • Hair: Dark blonde with light highlights, fine, thin

Excellent application and beautiful.

I would love to venture into bolder colors but my application skills leave much to be desired besides which my hands are too shaky. So I live vicariously through beautiful pictures like yours.
