OPI Solitaire + Gradient

You remember when I said I was on a no-buy? Well, I had some credits so I bought OPI Solitaire! I've wanted this ever since I saw it on

This is two thin coats of OPI Solitaire. No top coat.

Application was easy and it has excellent dry time.

I wanted to do a gradient with Solitaire as a base so I pulled out my swatch sticks of the JulieG Frosted Gumdrops collection and went with Crushed Candy.

I did the gradient in my usual way, by painting the polishes directly on my makeup wedge and sponging it on. Oh my goodness. It was like I had cement all over my fingers afterwards. Cleanup, meh!

So pretty! I can imagine that using Blueberry Fizz would make a beautiful icy look for winter.


  1. Cute nails. I love OPI nail polishes.

  2. This is stunning! Love the texture from the polish.

  3. what a great idea to make this gradient!
    the final effect is so awesome <3
