Golden Nude

Happy Monday polished friends!

I can't believe Christmas is only a little over a week away! I'm so unprepared this year - we've picked up a couple of gifts, but we have so much more to do and next weekend will be a total write-off.  I have two potlucks to go to and cooking in my house is always an ordeal - at least both dishes I'm making are fairly foolproof, so I should have no issues - fingers crossed!

Nude with Gold Matte

Nude with Gold Matte

I've been seeing gold and nude everywhere lately and I love love love it.  I wish I had done this as a gradient, the gold glitter is a little overpowering in my opinion, but I'm still pretty happy with how this turned out.  I ended up adding a matte top coat and my friend at work asked "what's wrong with your nails?"  Not something a nail blogger wants to hear about their mani - I make myself feel better by thinking she doesn't know anything about style - lol!!

Base Coat:  Orly Bonder
Main Color:  Becca, recognize the color?  Why yes, it is my Essie Yogaga - soooo pretty!!!
I used the saran wrap method with Sally Hansen's Golden I and then layered the best gold glitter from Sally's over top.
Top Coat:  NYC - Matte Me Crazy

  1. What's wrong with your nails? What kind of question is that-what is wrong with THEM? LOL. They are very pretty, if they are wrong, I don't want my nails to be right!

  2. I like it, it looks simple and elegant!

    BTW, I'm thinking of doing another Challenge, this one:

    They are doing it on the 1st of January and posting every day, which I'm not a fan of lol. So I was thinking of doing this with the other girls that we did a 31 Day Challenge with before. Maybe instead of doing it every 3 days we can change it to 5 days? What do you think Nicole? x

  3. Why would anybody ask that kind of question??? lol !! These are pretty imo !!

  4. LOL, she never saw a matte polish/top coat before ;)
    It's a lovely mani :)

  5. WHAT!? Whats wrong with her brain? These are gorgeous! You are right, she obviously has no frickin idea as to what she is talking about!
