NOTD: OPI Ponce De Lilac w/ French Tip Marble + Tutorial

As you know, I wasn't 100% satisfied with the half-moon marble tutorial, because the colors didn't really have a lot of contrast, so I decided to do another mani & tutorial with better colors. This is the result - base color of OPI Ponce De Lilac, and marbling also done with OPIs; Pompeii Purple, Virgin Island Velvet & Russian Navy:


& here's the tutorial:



Don't get too spoiled here now, I don't plan on doing 2 tutorials most weeks, maybe 1 a week if that, but as you probably know by now, when I have something I think could have been done better, I usually have to rectify it as soon as possible. Plus I was lucky enough that I got Friday off as well as Thanksgiving Day, so I could stay up past midnight dorking around with my camera without having to worry about when I needed to wake up LOL.

Thanks for reading.

  2. GILDEDANGEL - Thanks =)

    DANICA - I think this is actually an older color(the name is in the middle of the label on the bottom, whereas the name is at the top of the label now), but I'm not sure what collection it was ever a part of - this is actually one of several OPIs my mom picked up for me at a garage sale over the summer =)

  8. This is beautiful! Thanks for the demo video. I cannot wait to try it when I get home from prolonged medical and back to my colors/tools. I have a few from the collection the base shade is from. It has some great ones in it. There is one OPI made before this one that is similar called Loyalty Island Lilac.
