TIOT times 4!

Happy Try It On Tuesday!
For those of you who don't know, TIOT is when you wear a nail polish that is already in your stash that you haven't used yet.

Here I am showing you OPI You Callin' Me a Lyre from their NYC Ballet Soft Shades collection and OPI Number One Nemesis from their Spiderman collection both of which came out earlier this year.

I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new for this post.
First of all I never wear french manicures. I like to keep my nails shorter so I think they look silly on me. Now some ladies out there can rock a french mani on super short nails and make it look amazing, but I just can't get it to work for me. 
So I decided to try a sponged french mani. I took my inspiration from Marta over at ChitChat nails. She really wowed me with this manicure.
If you haven't seen her blog before head over there and prepare to be inspired!
Onto the nails. I used:

1 coat OPI Nail Envy
2 coats OPI You Callin' Me a Lyre?
sponged OPI Number One Nemesis
stamped BM-312 w/ Konad Special Black Pearl

Of course I stamped it for a little extra pop with a plate and image that I have never used before!

What do you think? 
I love it! I can't wait to use these colors again but it might have to wait a little bit because of some "nail mail" that I recieved today...


  1. Wow, those Cult Nails polishes are looking gooood! Great mani!

  2. Beautiful! I just found your blog yesterday a d I'm so glad I did. You're very talented! This mani is both subtle & cool at the same time. It's really hard to make that balance.
