Tribal Nail Art with Polishes from the OPI Ford Mustang and Nordic Collections

press samples

I was just working on my Lacquer Legion Fandom mani for Monday and it was a total fail. LOL. I dared not take a pic of it for fear it would get out on the interwebs and end up on some fail blog! It was bad. So take solace in the fact that we all do stinky manis. I’ll attempt Plan B in the morning. I hope you’ll join the fun and post your own Lacquer Legion Fandom look. Be sure to use the hashtag #LLfandom so we can find you! (Visit the Lacquer Legion Facebook for details.) Fortunately I redeemed my fail with this mani using shades from the the two newest OPI Collections…the Ford Mustang 50th Anniversary Collection and the Nordic Collection. I love, love, love how it turned out!


From the Ford set, I used Girls Love Ponies, a perfect pink, and 50 years of Style, a metallic gold. From the Nordic Collection, I used Do You Have This Color in Stockholm, a vibrant purple, and the lone glitter topper, My Voice is a Little Norse. KBShimmer tribal themed nail vinyls helped me create the pattern and keep it all neat. I’m suddenly addicted to these things!

Aztec Nail Art with OPI Ford Mustang and Nordic Collections

These two OPI Collections have my name written all over them. I love the vibrant cremes and the deep neutrals. (Plus, they always photograph so well!)  I love tape manis, so it’s no wonder that nail vinyls are my newest obsession. Since they have some “stretch” to them, I can always get a nice seal against the nail bed.

The OPI Ford Mustang Collection is available now. The Nordic Collection will be available in both nail lacquer and GelColor beginning August 6, 2014. Purchase OPI at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and for $9.00 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail. Visit and follow OPI on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for news and promotions.

KBShimmer nail vinyls are available at for $5.00 each. Follow KBShimmer on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for news and promotions.
