Diamond Rays

I had this on my wish list a loooong time ago and a lovely lady from MUA, contacted me, and offered to swap, so YAY. I Love all the OPI DS polishes, and even though this isn't as holo as others, it's still so pretty. You can semi see the holo glitter in it, but it would have been a lot better if I was able to catch the sun. For this I layered 1 coat of Sinful Black on Black to start.








Then taping off my nails, I then added another coat of SInful Black on Black. I love how it appears to be diamond rays!! Oh and yes, I do see that I only did 3 rays on my middle finger, haha, not sure how I missed the 4th ray *shrug*

  15. Thanks you guys!! I just love how this one sparkles!!

    pkbmum, actually I will only use 1 black, Sinful's Black on Black. The formula rocks, and I only need 1 coat!

    Judy, Thanks for asking, I am feeling a tad better, but I already can't wait for bed, lol.

    Heidi, I will use Konad Special Black polish or Wet n' Wild black :)

  16. So pretty!

    This is unrelated but do you have a list of polishes that work well for Konad stamping? I just bought my stamper and can't seem to get any regular polishes to work with it.

  22. You get the prettiest lines with tape--whenever I try, they always bleed terribly. I've read your tutorial post, I just don't know what I'm getting wrong :( Do you think the quality of the tape makes a difference?

  23. such a classy look! I also am a fan of the DS collections

  24. Thanks Erika. I have 2 Sinful b-on-b.

  25. Thanks you guys!!

    Jenny and Kaylie, thank you!! I will be sure to check yours out as well :)

    Daniela, I have used other cheaper brands, and didn't have many issues, but I always prefer my Scotch Tape brand, Satin finish :) It does help to use a fast dry top coat before you tape :)

  28. how do you cut the tape so small? i just tried it tonight but my tape was too big and it looks funky. :/

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is great as 'diamond rays' and I think it could also work as fireworks with a few added lines and maybe colours. :)

  30. I wanted to try this to wear over the 4th of July weekend. I did a practice session today. How do you get your scotch tape rays so small? Mine were twice as thick and it did not look as cute. Any tips?
