Nicole by OPI Just Busta Muave

Hello everyone!

I have a sick toddler and she hardly slept last night and neither did I. And this probably means we are going to cancel our Atlanta trip this weekend. ;( 

At least I have nail polish for a pick me up, right?! haha Dustin bought me this NOPI a while back and I am happy he did because it's so fun for fall. This is called Just Busta Mauve. I am loving the blue glitter/shimmer! This is 3 coats:




What do you ladies think of this shade? I wanted to do some sort of layering or nail art with this but was having a hard time coming up with a good color/theme to use. 

What nail art or layering would you add this base?

Pin It!

    1. Mine either - it looks dead in the bottle and on the hand - washes out to kind of a muddy look...but these photos are fabulous showing the details.

  2. Oooooh, so pretty!!!!! Not sure what I would layer over this... maybe something simple since the color and glitter stand out so much???

  3. Your photos of this are spectacular. It's a complex polish. But on the nail for me does not show up all the goodies it had unless you are looking really close. So I can see why you are thinking of doing something over this. Don't know what would show well with stamping using this as a base. I might instead do some free-hand graphic hash marks down from the tip just a bit lower than you would paint a French tip...and because this is a metallic, I would use a metallic stripper polish - like the Stripe Rite ones...maybe using a royal blue or even a silver to contrast the other metal colors in this one.

  4. For nail art with this color I tried to match some of the particle colors in it. I stamped over busta mauve using a chrome-ish pink that I had, it was a really nice combo. Then I tried a chrome blue that didn't work as well but I think it was the brand. I think that essie mirror metallic blue one would work well if it lives up to its hype.
