Hawaii Striped Nails!

Aloha! I'm gonna go ahead and just pretend I'm back in Hawaii....sighh...

SO, I finally got the new OPI Hawaii collection! I loooove them. I also got the mini set of 50 Shades of Grey, but I'm too in love with the Hawaii collection that I have no immediate plans to use any shade of grey. I'll probably force myself to though. They're actually my first set of OPI minis, I can't get over how adorably teeny tiny they are.

Anyways, I wanted to use as many Hawaii colors as possible, so I did my pinky and thumb neutral, and did three striped accent nails. I've decided they look a little odd. Not my favorite look, but I used 10/12 of the colors. If you've seen "Pineapples Have Peelings Too," you'll know why I passed on that one. It kind of looks like clown vomit, and not in a good way, drunk clown vomit. I'd like to attempt to make it look good sometime though...if that's possible. "Go With The Lava Flow" I just couldn't fit in there.

For the stripes I just used striping tape to mask off some bare nail. Didn't realized it leaked under a bit on the middle nail...o well.

I used:
  • OPI: Do You Take Lei Away?
  • OPI: Lost My Bikini In Molokini
  • OPI: Hello Hawaii Ya?
  • OPI: Aloha From OPI
  • OPI: Suzi Shops & Island Hops
  • OPI: My Gecko Does Tricks
  • OPI: That's Hula-rious!
  • OPI: Is Mai Tai Crooked?
  • OPI: Just Lanai-ing Around
  • OPI: This Color's Making Waves
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat
