Armed, Ready and Bronzed to Bits

Hey guys! I've got another olderish mani to share with you guys today! During the summer when I had a string of lovely ladies guest posting for me, I did a few sets of nails and then since the 31 Day Challenge started so soon after that I never got around to posting!

I got Essie Armed and Ready a while back and promptly put it away and completely forgot I owned it! So when I was going through my collection looking for some inspiration and found this gem I had to wear it immediately! Armed and Ready is an army green with a copper shimmer running throughout the polish. It really is beautiful and is a great colour for fall.

I was being lazy and not in the mood to do too intense nail art, I mean I was on vacation! LOL and I knew that these Cult Nails Bronze Gemstones would look perfect as an accent nail! So I randomly started placing the gems on my nail, trying my best to spread out the biggest gems.

I really love how these gems play with this polish. Also these gems are freakin SHINY! Like they just glisten off of everything. By far my favourite gems that I have used. Cult Nails nail art accessories are off the chain! ;) You can purchase your own Bronze gems here.

Sometimes simple nails end up being ones that I like more! Do you ever just keep it simple? What do you think of these gems?!

Hope you are all having a fabulous day!

    1. Thank you A Reid! Placing the gems is very easy, I just started placing them down and kept going until I had covered the whole nail.
