Todays nails of the day are OPI Bastille My Heart. This red polish came out with the France collection. It doesn't show quite accurately on this picture, it's deeper in real life, like a deep crimson red. I'm not huge on red nails, but every now and then it tickles my fancy.
This actually came about because I filmed a video tonight on how I manicure my nails, so I picked the brightest color so it shows up really well on film. Filming the manicure video was so much fun actually, that it's made me consider getting into nail art. I'm not huge on nail art as I think a large part of it just looks really tacky, but I have seen some designs that looked really good, especially those of the "less is more" variety.
Would you be interested in seeing some nail art videos from me? I have a feeling it might be something I could get good at since I love artsy stuff in general, and I'm pretty decent with a paint brush. Although I have no idea what type of brushes are suitable for nail art, can you just use normal art brushes? Can you use normal nail polish, or does it have to be thinned down a bit?
I'd be happy for any input or tips in the comments!! Oh and the manicure video will be coming up soon on my Youtube channel. It's been so frequently requested but I was never able to do it before without a good tripod, which I have now! Yay for sturdy set-ups.
