For this weeks #veckansopi the theme was my favorite nude polish: Samoan Sand! I really wanted to show off the beauty of this polish without to much distracting things, so this is what I did. Hope you like it!
I even made a tutorial for the quilted one. I know I have done a similar quilted tutorial before but I wanted to show that can do this effect with any color polish and also with shiny top coat!
All I used was OPI – Samoan Sand, OPI – From Start to Finish, a dental floss holder, some hexagon glitters and a tooth pick! Super easy and gives a cool effect.
Good luck and have fun if you give it a go!
Really easy and really pretty!

What do you get when you mix Alpine Snow with a bit of Elephantastic Pink?? You get your own version of OPI ‘Suzi Shops And Island Hops’ from their new Hawaiian collection!
Two nights ago I went through my OPI stash and found that one of the colors I was missing badly was a baby pink. I then realized I had like three of the same type of pinks and one of them was ‘Elephantastic Pink’. I also realized I had a mini bottle of Alpine snow with like half left, so what do I do? I mix some of ‘Elephantastic Pink’ into my mini ‘Alpine Snow’ and get the cutest baby pink polish!
I was so happy that I sacrificed my big half empty bottle of ‘EP’ and poured like half a bottle of ‘AS’ to make one big ass bottle of baby pink! My own ‘Suzi Shops And Island Hops’!
And the result on my nails..? Here you go:
I myself love it and hope you do too!

In love with this method right now and I want to do water marbles all the time! I have recently gotten the hang of this and I can remember how frustrating it was when the polish wouldn’t spread or when the design got messed up. But now after lots of practice and not giving up I finally have created lots of successful water marbles.
The thing I found that made the biggest difference was the type of glass I used, the room temperatured water and the polish. The two last parts I think are the ones that made my water marbles go from failure to success. I always make sure that I have water in a big plastic bottle that is room temperatured so that whenever I want to do water marble I’m sure the water has been in room temperature for a long enough time. The polishes I find work best with this method is OPI, but I have found others working as well. The most important thing is to make sure the polish is not to thick.
I also made a tutorial for this design but if you still have questions after this blog post, feel free to ask!
For this weeks #veckansopi theme we had to put focus on a certain polish and what better way of doing that than to only use that polish? The polish is called A Rose At Dawn… Broke By Noon and is a beautiful metallic shimmery pink color with perfect formula! Although I’m not a big fan of the super shimmery polishes I quite liked this one.
I made a tutorial for this super easy look even though it’s kinda self explanatory!
I got my awesome chevron stickers from NailVinyls.com but if you don’t have any you can easily create your own using a pair of zig zag scissors and some tape!
