DIY Mani – OPI “Miami Beet”

For those who know me, they know that I am obsessed with nail polish. I literally have over a hundred of them in all brands and all shades. My hubby actually made me a nail polish rack that we have hung up on our bathroom wall (thanks babe, you da best). Before mommy life, I would change my nail color every other day because I would get tired of the color I had on and can’t stand chipped nail polish. Nowadays, I’d be lucky to have time to do my nails once a week (insert crying emoji here, lol). For years, I have received compliments on my diy manicures (manis for short) so I thought why not do my first blog post on my fave nail products, share how to I do my manis, and my nail polish swatch of “Miami Beet” by OPI.

My diy mani products:



My diy mani steps:

  1. OPI Natural Nail Base CoatPut Instant Cuticle Remover by Sally Hansen on your cuticles and leave it on for about 15 seconds.
  2. Push cuticles back with a cuticle pusher.
  3. Rinse hands with warm soapy water.
  4. Trim cuticles with a cuticle nipper (please be very careful).
  5. Buff nails with a nail buffer block.
  6. Put one coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat.
  7. Depending on the colored nail polish you use, put either 2 or 3 coats on.
  8. Allow some time to let nails dry.
  9. Apply one coat of CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.
  10. After about a minute of putting on the top coat, spray OPI Rapidry Spray on each nail.


Maintain your cuticles between manis by applying CND Cuticle Eraser on your cuticles a couple times a day. Trust me, it’s a miracle worker!

  1. […] I own a few of their polishes and all of them have applied nicely and stayed on as long as my OPI nail polishes! The price is great for those trendy colors you don’t want to spend a ton on cause you probably won’t wear them a lot. Plus, you won’t feel as guilty buying a few colors haha! All you need is a good base coat and top coat and you’re set for the perfect mani! Check out the ones I use here […]
