Hiya Polished Peeps!  Metallic day for the 31 Day Challenge!!

I'm not really sure what constitutes as a metallic polish, so I stuck with the obvious -  gold.  I bought this recently and hadn't tried yet - I think it was my only untried.  I have to say, while metallic polish looks cool, it's so unforgiving!!  It's like a tight spandex dress, it shows EVERYTHING!  Your strokes have to be perfect, there's no room for error - ain't no seche vite going to help hide the imperfections!!

  1. Oh WOW! I love the design you chose to do! Makes your nails look so much longer! Love it! :)

    1. Thanks, I didn't really notice that until you said it - it does, doesn't it!!

  2. Those nails are so cool!! That's so funny that we did basically the same exact nails at the same time. I like your addition of the stud tho- looks pretty hardcore. :) and I think you're triangles are a little better than mine :) Your nails are lookin good in their tight spandex dress polish! Haha.

    1. LOL, what are the odds, hey? Well, I guess when you are a Nicole, you know where it's at!! Tight spandex dress - LOL!!!!

  3. Damn, these puppies are lethally hot. Nice work!

  4. These are fierce!!!

    I hate wearing true metallics solely because of the brush stroke issue. Essie Mirror Metallics are amazing - like colored mirrors on your nails, but the brush strokes and drag make me want to throw them across the house!

  5. Just an FYI that I've lost a little respect for you. I don't like the AH at the end of your post title. I hate Metallica

    hehehe xoxox

    1. It was more of an AHHHHHHHH I hate metallics - am I back in your good graces now?

  6. This is really cool! I need to get some of those studs, i've been seeing them everywhere and they just ad something subtle but great!

    1. I picked them up at Walmart, a little over price, IMHO, I think you could get a better deal getting a whole bunch on line! Thanks!!
