White and gold manicure with berries

I participated in a Secret Santa with my ladies from the BHB and my amazing Santa got me a polish that had been on my wishlist for at least 6 months. It’s hardly shocking that it is like the first polish I tried out, right?

The polish in question is OPI – Don’t Touch my Tutu, a white jelly polish from their Ballet inspired line. I have a couple of the other and love them and I had been lusting after this one since the first time I saw the swatch. I was not disappointed! Here is the mani I put together with it:

Don’t Touch my Tutu, as I mentioned, is a jelly polish. It’s squishy and perfect and the formula was lovely. I used 3 coats here. I generally don’t like visible nail line, but I found it acceptable here! I used a small dotting tool and OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby for the dots and put a coat of Wet n Wild Fergie – Glamorous over my index finger.

For my middle finger, I started out by using my narrow striping brush to paint a twiggy shape on my nail using Barielle – In Good Taste. I then used a medium and small dotting tool to add red (Barielle – Dinner at 8) and gold (OPI – L.A.M.B) dots for berries. It looked a bit empty, so I also added a few tiny white dots.

POLISHES:

  • Sally Hansen Nail Nutrition – Green Tea + Bamboo Strength
  • OPI – Don’t Touch My Tutu
  • OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby
  • Wet n Wild Fergie – Glamorous
  • Barielle – In Good Taste
  • Barielle – Dinner at 8
  • Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat

I loved this mani so hard! This should have been my Christmas mani, but it wasn’t. I think I may recreate this in the spring with flowers in place of berries, because I am so in love with this look!
