Elegant Manicure with O.P.I Pirouette My Whistle

Good afternoon, dear readers!

I hope I am not jumping the gun by saying that this manicure is elegant.  To me it is, but to you it may not be.  ^-^

For this I used a light taupe-y franken for a base, then I added two coats of O.P.I's Pirouette My Whistle.  I absolutely ADORE that glitter!!!  It reminds me of snow, softly falling in a beautiful winter landscape.  Very elegant!

I then painted some designs with black acrylic paint, and finished it off (to my sister's suggestion) by adding a small, clear rhinestone to each nail.


I hope that everyone is having a fantastic weekend! :D

Happy Easter!
