Try it on Tues...errr... Wednesday Mani

Hi everyone.

For this week's Try it on Tuesday manicure I have butter LONDON Jasper with OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours. I know it's Wednesday, but better late than never right?

I started with Jasper, a creamy pastel yellow from the 2013 Spring collection, for my base. I love the shade of yellow, but I had trouble with streakiness. I ended up using four coats to try and even it out, and it is still a tiny bit streaky IRL. I've read other reviews that didn't really have that problem though, so I may just have to be more careful next time. This photo is two coats in daylight and I topped it with one coat of Out the Door.


Since the streakiness was bothering me I decided to cover some of it with simple nail art. So I broke out another untried, OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours from the Euro Centrale collection. Now this is an orange I like, and the application/consistency was great. This photo shows one coat of My Paprika... over Jasper and in fluorescent light.


I am really happy with this combo, but My Paprika is a little deeper and leans more red IRL.

So, have you checked out the prizes and entered the Spring Fling Giveaway? If you haven't entered yet you can go do it here! There will be 44 fantastic prizes up for grabs so it is definitely worth it to enter.

Laters gators.
