Today I have a very special post to share with all of you! I'm doing a twin post with a lovely Jamie of Polish, Please!
About a month ago I started noticing that Jamie commented on almost all of my posts. Her comments were always so nice that after awhile I eventually had to click on her to find out who she was! When I found out she had a blog as well I asked her if she wanted to do a twin post with me. We chatted about a few different ideas and finally settled on a mani that is Good As Gold. Gold is such a perfect colour for the holiday season and is huge this year. You can probably all tell I'm a little obsessed with the amount of gold I have been using this month! ;)
Green and gold have to be one of the most perfect combinations ever so I went with my love for those and created these extravagant gold and green nails!
I started with Milani White On The Spot on my index and ring nails and China Glaze Running In Circles on the rest of my nails. Here is where the gold comes in. I did a gradient with Running In Circles and Essence A Piece of Forever. On my index and ring nails I created a half moon in green rhinestones and then went to work adding gold bullion beads.
On my thumb I added some gold crosses to to give it a little more visual interest. Running in circles and gold look so good together and I can say I've worn this combination a few more times since!
All in all this was pretty simple to create, just a little time consuming with placing all the beads! I love looks like this and always find them ornate and over the top, which I adore. I haven't done anything like this in awhile and it was nice to have some 3D feel on my nails.
Head over to Polish, Please! to see what Jamie has created for our twin post!
Do you like 3D manicures? Would you wear this on your nails? Hope you're having a fabulous day :)
5 DAYS TIL CHRISTMAS!
