OPI Iceland Abstract Splodges

Can you tell by the title that I had absolutely no idea what to call these nails? I'm sure there is a name for this style but for the life of me I can't think what it is. That's what happens when you leave blog post writing until after a full day of work, and having your brain fried by Peaky Blinders. Whatever they are called, these are loosely inspired by Nina Nailed It. I've seen this type of design floating round Instagram for a while now, but I know that she originated this kind of look and I always love her designs but I wont pretend that mine will ever look as good as hers! 

I wanted to have another play around with the OPI Iceland Collection*, it's such a gorgeous muted collection but there are so many options for nail art I just couldn't resist. Considering it's an autumn collection I feel like I managed to create quite a bright mani out of the shades, but I'm sure there will be more moody colours that will show their face on the blog soon. Considering my last mani with the collection wasn't very moody either. 

I used OPI - Aurora Berry-alis* as my base for the accent nails, and on the other nails I used a combination of OPI - Check Out The Old Geysirs*, OPI - I'll Have A Gin and Tectonic*, and OPI - Aurora Berry-alis*, plus OPI - Alpine Snow and black acrylic paint for the black dots/splodges. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

As a sidenote, what do you think of the new OPI bottle changes? I'm not sure how I feel about them, but that might just be because I'm not very good with change, but also I feel like there was no need to change them? Do you agree?

What do you think of the nails? Let me know in the comments!
