NOTD - OPI Nicki Minaj Collection

Hello lovelies.

Sorry I've been MIA lately, I've been having a bit of a break and just kinda coming back into myself again if that makes sense. Anyway, I've been trying to grow my nails so I can do a little bit of nail art and I've achieved that goal! I thought I'd start by taking it easy,  so I did a simple pink and blue checker board-esque pattern.

First I painted 2 coats of OPI's Pink Friday from the Nicki Minaj Collection. Then I took the Models Own Black nail art pen (the brush part) and did a line horizontally and vertically. I found if I did the horizontal line slightly further up the nail rather then bang in the middle, it looked much better. Finally I put OPI's Fly from the Minaj collection using the end of a hair grip (or if you have a dotting tool that would be better) into 2 of the pink sections. Obviously if you have a better method then use that one!

Thankyou for reading and subscribing.


  1. Those 2 colours go together surprisingly well-really like both & wow, that superneat. I have enough difficulty doing a simple white tip for a French manicure! Although, that got a lot easier recently which the purchase of Yves Saint Laurent French manicure pens. The white pen has a felt tip style nib & comes out at just the right pace so gives a super straight line & the tint has a brush tip & again, simply click for more polish, so no faffing around with bottles & lids & doesn't dry out whilst using it like an open bottle can. Sorry, bit off topic but they are ace :-)
    Anyone, well done for growing your nails & keep your nail art designs coming, Kath xxx

    1. Thanks! It took me so long to get it neat, but worth it in end. I've never tried any high end nail polish (apart from OPI), been eyeing some butter London's recently. Thanks kath xx

    2. Where is the best place to pick up a nail art pen? and what is the best make im looking around, not too expensive - love the pattern you did ! perhaps some festive ones or event related ones would be cool :) xxx

    3. Thanks for commenting. I got mine from models own as I love their polishes are great and the nail art pens are great too. Yeah that's a really good idea - might do one related to a certain charity xx
