Opal Nail Art

Synthetic opal (the most popular on the market) have a very regular pattern called “fire”.
It's combination of pink, green and blue shades with blue undertone.

Opal Nail Art Tutorial with Flakes nail Polish

For imitation this gemstone you need opaque white nail polish as base color and some flake nail polish.
My flakes have very weak green color so I added Holographic top.

  • White — Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
  • Flakes — Aurelia 137 Magnifique
  • Holographic top — INM Out the Door Silver Lining
