OPI Nordic Collection minis - My Dogsled is a Hybrid and My Voice is a Little Norse stud nail art

Hey my Friends!

A couple weeks ago I bought the mini pack of the OPI Nordic collection and I was waiting for inspiration to strike so I could bust them out! I saw this mani by @meganelice08 on Instagram and it was instant love. I decided to use OPI My Dogsled is a Hybrid instead of a white base. First, MDIAH is such a great Fall color, a dusty green teal crème. It applied very nicely but I think due to the mini sized brush I had to do 3 coats, I think with the full size bottle it would only take 2 coats for full opacity. Dang those OPI minis! The original mani used a few different sizes of square and round studs and I didn’t have as many options so I don’t think mine came out as nicely, not bad but just ok lol

Here is my try!

Isn’t My Dogsled is a Hybrid pretty? It dried darker than in the bottle making it a great Summer/Fall transition color.

I used My Voice is a little Norse on the pinky. In the bottle it’s a very gray/gunmetal glitter but loses some of that darker tone on the nail, I do like it but I guess I was expecting a little more out of it. The formula was very nice, this is one coat. If you don’t have a lot of these types of glitters then I’d recommend it, but if you’re like me and have tons of these then you can skip.

I used 3mm silver squares on all fingers but the ring finger, with 2mm gold round studs on each side. The ring finger is all 2mm studs randomly placed. I needed one size smaller than the 2mm studs to make my mani look more like the original.

I think I did ok, but not my fav. I can’t wait to wear My Dogsled is a Hybrid again, definitely a “me” color. Thanks for checking it out!
