OPI Muppets World Tour and the Unintentional Wedding Nails

This is a look I did way back in June, and the pictures have been stowed away on my computer ever since.  There were no plans for any particular design when I started, I just wanted to finally use OPI Muppets World Tour and just kind of winged the rest.  I never intended to make any type of "wedding nails" design, but when I was finished and gave my nails a look over, they definitely gave off that type of vibe to me.

The base of this manicure was 2 coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff.  I then layered 1 coat of Muppets World Tour over it.  Here's a few shots of how that looked.

Very pretty, kind of beachy/sandy but it just felt like something was missing to me.  That was when I decided to stamp over it.  After a quick flip through my stamping plates, I decided on a design from Bundle Monster plate BM-406.  To stamp, I used China Glaze 2030.

I really loved the way this turned out.  It almost felt a little too elegant for me, ha ha, but I wore it for the entire week.  The blue and pink glitters in Muppets World Tour were the perfect little pops of color against the neutral base and gold stamping.

KBShimmer announces the fall collection, an addition of 9 new polishes to its 3-free polish line. The collection also includes the re-release of ‘Jack,’ a Halloween-themed favorite. “When creating the fall collection, I was inspired by all the wonderful colors of the season, from changing leaves to pumpkins, and I converted those into warm, wearable colors,” KBShimmer Owner, Christy Rose, said.

The fall collection pulls the trending colors of the season and combines them with a dash of fun. “I wanted to highlight a few of our favorite trending fall colors, and we created Stonewashed and Leaf of Faith based on color tones in the fall Pantone lineup,” Rose said.

The Collection also features “Jack,” a retro Halloween best seller from the KBShimmer polish vault. This easy-to-apply glitter polish is sure to spook your friends while adding a touch of glitz to this dark and scary holiday.

The Glitters & Holos:

A Raisin To Live
Deep and dark, this is a deep burgundy, blackened Ox-Blood colored polish full of holographic sparkles.

Flannel Surfing
Like a well-loved pair of pajama pants, this faded blue polish is warmed with gray undertones.  Pops of orange, aqua, and teal glitters complete this comforting polish.

Re-released as a Halloween treat, Jack is a black jelly with orange hex glitters, a scattering of orange micro slices, and black hexes and shreds.

Leaf of Faith
A deep cabernet-red jelly is the backdrop for glitters in red, orange and gold.  A scattering of holographic glitters gives this fall themed polish sparkle and shine.

Rust No One
This deep, rusty, red-leaning pumpkin color is ideal for fall.  With its linear holographic rainbow, Rust No One is beautiful indoors and out.

Up & Cunning
A deep teal, almost forest green in color, Up & Cunning is a perfect compliment to fall fashions. In the sun or bright light, this linear holographic beauty just shines with rainbow goodness.

The Glitter Top Coat:
Kiss & Spell
Like a witches brew, this Halloween-themed polish is loaded with a variety of shapes in traditional colors. Purple, orange, yellow and neon green swim in a sea of multi-colored hexes.

The Creams:
How You Dune?
Like sands through the hourglass, this “greige” polish is a perfect blend of creamy beige and a light grey.

Hugs & Wishes
Lavender might not be a traditional fall color, but with lavender being paired with pumpkin in scents and food, this blue-leaning pastel color is popping up all over.

Jeans are a girl’s best friend (after diamonds, of course), and this dusty navy color is the perfect complement to denim.
