Today is Polishers Inc. day again and this time the theme was All-time Favorite as the polish you love the most. To me that was an easy one. It’s OPI Kinky In Helsinki and it’s my favorite polish cos of the emotional value this exact bottle has. Don’t get me wrong though, this is a GORGEOUS polish but to me it’s more than just that. I’ve had this bottle since 2003. It was a gift from my then boyfriend, now a husband and he brought it with him from Texas the first time he came to Finland.
I wanted to do keep this manicure mostly about the polish and not cover it up with a lot of nail art. My first idea failed miserably but it also gave me this idea that turned out looking much better.
I started with two coats of Kinky In Helsinki and let those dry well. Then I stamped a heart pattern from XL-O stamping plate using Konad Vivid Pink. Next I applied a coat of Kinky In Helsinki and I kept the coat so thin you can still see the stamping through it. Last I added a coat of HK Girl top coat.
In real life the pattern is a little more visible than in these photos and it has a certain glow to it. I’m happy with the result and maybe I’ll redo this manicure for Valentine’s Day :)
