This Opal Nail Art Is Stone-Cold Awesome

Calling all October-born ladies: It's time to rock your birth-month pride (on your nails, that is). One ingenious editor over at xoVain figured how to create that lovely blend of sheer white, pastel, and gold that makes the stone so lovely — and she broke down the process into steps, so that her fellow Scorpios can rock the look, too.
By starting with a frosty white, you get that perfect glowy-stone thing going — then all you have to do is sponge on different pastel shades to get that dreamy watercolor look. Next, add a layer of iridescent glitter polish. As for the rest of the technique? It's not exactly child's play, but it's totally DIY-able — so if you're an October lady and you're proud, check out the full tutorial and get painting! (xoVain
