I was out running around the other day just to get out of the house, so I popped into several beauty supply stores. While I was at Beauty Brands, I noticed an entire display of a single polish, naturally I had to take a look at it. What I found was the Beauty Brands exclusive OPI shade, Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini. I couldn't decide if I had anything too similar to it, so I left it there. After checking my stash, I decided to head back today and pick it up. I'm glad I did!
Teeny Weeny Pink Bikini is a hot pink polish with fuchsia and pink glitter. Like most OPI shades, it's highly pigmented and has a smooth formula.

I'm a little obsessed with gradients right now, so I sponged on some China Glaze Blue Sparrow and Frostbite, which turned out really nice.
I also picked up Essie Matte About You while I was at Beauty Brands, and I decided later in the day that I might as well try that out too.
I'm really pleased with the end result... well, aside from the fact that my nails are jacked and I ran out of q-tips and couldn't clean up my mani! Haha, oh well!
ooh I love this! I haven't ever tried a gradient, what do you do or use?ReplyDelete
I just use some sponges I bought at Michael's in the paint aisle :) This definitely isn't the best gradient ever, but it was fun!ReplyDelete
HI Amber! You did a great job on the gradient! I need to try this someday!! I gave you an award, you can check it out here.... http://the-trace-face-philes.blogspot.com/2011/05/stylish-blogger-award.htmlReplyDelete
Yay you!! :) This is cute. I'm going to send you a message with a link to the clean-up brush I use that I bought on amazon. You will seriously -never- use q-tips ever ever again!ReplyDelete
I found my sponges at my local dollar store. If you have one near you, you should check it out- they're just the wedges that people use for their foundation. They work great!ReplyDelete
... And I gave you an award on my blog as well, but I didn't realize Traci already had... woopsies :) You get 2 of 'em!ReplyDelete
This is so awesome!! I love the colours, and still haven't decided if I like the glossy or matt version better haha. Great job :)ReplyDelete
