Summer Nail Art ft. Opi Retro Summer

1:57 AM

Hello! Today I'm sharing a simple nail art look. You know me, I'm all about easy and simple manis that don't take much time. To start out I used 4 polishes from the Opi Retro Summer collection. I recently shared my swatch & thoughts post on those here if you'd like to check it out.

Here's the base!

I've used 2 coats of Sailing & Nailing and allowed that to dry before using the dry brush technique to apply SPF XXX, Flip Flops & Crop Tops and Towel Me About It. I decided to go cuticle to free edge with this one and I'm really liking how it came out. I waited a few and top coated before moving onto my stamping. 

I prepped my skin with Simply Peel from Bliss Kiss for easier clean up after stamping.

On my pointer and middle finger you can see how very little clean up I have left over. You can't beat that! 

After removing all of my simply peel and doing the last little bit of clean up here's my mani!

I love this image! It's from UberChic beauty plate 5-02. All together this reminds me of a beach towel or something. I didn't top coat after stamping because I liked the look of this almost matte stamping look. 

Opi is available at professional salons, Beauty Brands,, Chatters, Dillard’s, Regis, ULTA Beauty and

That's all for today friends. Thanks for hanging out with me! Until next time!!
