Sometimes when I decide I want to paint my nails I find it difficult to know what shade to choose. Maybe it is a case of having too much choice but I think it is more likely that I’m not sure what colour I want to represent me for the next few days.
Do you do that? Do you choose your nail polish based on how you want to be perceived? how you are feeling or how you would like to feel?
If I’m having a low day, I might choose a cheerfully bright shade to help lift my mood or I might choose a blue if I’m simply, ‘feeling blue’. I probably spend longer than I should contemplating what shade to go for but I don’t mind as I really enjoy the decision making process.
This week I couldn’t pick a shade, so I decided to use them all and create this rainbow look. What do you think?
I love it. It’s bright, summery and cheerful. It makes me happy.
When I’m sat typing away all day long at work, probably feeling a tad stressed, a glimpse of my rainbow nails makes me smile.
For this particular rainbow look I opted for all OPI shades as they seemed to tone nicely.
OPI Kiss Me I’m Brazilian (muted hot pink), OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? (mango orange), OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana (sunny yellow), OPI Did It On ‘Em (lime green) and OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook (aqua blue). All but OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana and OPI Did It On ‘Em applied evenly in 2 coats, whereas these needed 3 coats.
What’s not to love? I’m feeling a rainbow nail obsession coming on, the possibilities are endless! I could use pastels, brights, different tones of pinks..
What do you do when you can’t decide what nail polish shade to go for?
