OPI Rally Pretty Pink & OPI Turquoise Shatter

This is a combo I actually just thought of doing the other day. I had thought of doing a combo such as OPI Glitzerland, OPI Bring On The Bling and OPI Turquoise Shatter (phew, that was wordy!) but decided to do OPI RPP and TS at the last minute.

I probably will still try out the 'wordy combo' at another time, because I reckon it'd be completely gorgeous.

For these mani combos, I kind of took inspiration from my Mum and sister's recent trip to the Greek Islands. I was thinking of turquoise shimmering waters, golden sandy beaches, hot blue sky, etc. etc, yeah you get the idea!

So- for the RPP and TS combo, here's a pic:

OPI Rally Pretty Pink and OPI Turquoise Shatter

The only problem I had with this is that the shatter didn't shatter as well as I had hoped it would, probaly because I put the shatter on too thick- my bottle has already gone slightly gloopy :( so I may have to rescue it with a couple of drops of Lacquer thinner.

Also, I have realised that personally I REALLY prefer to apply shatter horizontally across the nail, not vertically. I just way prefer the effect, and strangely it seems to shatter a bit more...

Back to the colours though, and I really like this combo, it's very 'poolside' and tropical feeling.
