I wanted to do something fun, and after recently purchasing yellow polish that looks remarkably like the yellow from a wooden No. 2 pencil, I was inspired to put together this design.
Check out the video below or keep reading to see what I used!
I followed that up by painting the eraser. I used a single coat of "Set the Mood" from Sephora's exclusive OPI line, then added a coat or two of OPI's limited-edition "Your Web or Mine?" from the 2012 The Amazing Spider-Man collection.
After everything had dried once again, I added silver overtop of the yellow and pink. I started with L.A. Colors ArtDeco in "Silver," then added a bit of L.A. Colors ArtDeco in "Silver Glitter" on top of that. I painted a smaller line of "Silver" on top of THAT, then one more coat of "Silver Glitter," and then an even smaller line of "Silver" to build up the appearance of ridging.
I completed the look by mimicking the curve of a pencil with two lines of L.A. Colors ArtDeco in "Gold Glitter" on top of the yellow. I finished everything off with OPI Top Coat.
Is anyone else obsessed with nail polish? What are you wearing right now?
