How To Do: Sephora OPI Distressed Metal Nails

September 28, 2011 Katja Presnal

Trendy, bold and fun look of the fall for your nails is OPI’s distressed metal look, and here is how you can do it at home. But first – reason why I think the distressed metal nails are not just cool, but also makes you to live life to the fullest.

Last time I got my nails done I chose dark burgundy color, it was a tad “too dark” but absolutely made a statement. Now I am thinking about making a hair appointment and turning my hair back to bright red, because you know what – life is too short to take it seriously and make safe choices. I’m not asking you to quit your job and travel around the world (which I’m trying my hardest!) but I am asking you to take changes first on everyday things, like getting a yellow trench coat (wore mine today!) to bring sunshine for dark fall days, wearing a fun hat or bright colored scarf – or getting your nails done in a fun new way. When you take baby steps to do things that you’d normally not do, you will gain self-confidence to try out other things that are out of your comfort zone. It can be funky nails today – who knows, maybe you will start Latin dancing or another hobby next and it will be the New IT Thing that makes you enjoy life even more.

How to create OPI Distressed Metal Nails:

1. Apply one or two coats of SEPHORA by OPI Nail Colour in Break a Leg Warmer! Let dry for at least 20 minutes.

2. Layer a coat of SEPHORA by OPI Blasted in Silver on top, and wait for the blasted effect to appear.

3. And to finish: seal with SEPHORA by OPI Nail Treatment – 3 in 1 Base, Top & Strengthener.
