Gooooood Morning loves! I am DONE my co-op! No more hour and a half commute both ways each day. I am REALLY looking forward to getting to sleep past 5:45 for the next little while. :D
Today I have an amazing polish to share with you, Zoya Gilty. Ever since the gold top coat trend started I really wanted to get my hands on one. However the $30+ price tag was really holding me back. I love polish, but I need to be able to pay for tuition lol. So when I was lucky enough to win Week 2 of Nail Polish Canada's Holiday nail art contest I literally jumped for joy knowing that a gold topcoat would be mine!
I decided that I actually needed to wear this polish. No swatching here. So on Sunday night I finally say down and put on two coats of China Glaze Running In Circles and then added Zoya Gilty. The green and gold combination is to die for. I'm hooked on it! I felt so luxurious with real 18K gold on my nails. There is just no other way to describe it.
I'd been wearing this for 2 days, and generally that's as long as I can leave something on, but there was a part of me just begging myself not to take it off. So I embellished it!
I started with the thought in mind to just add the rhinestone and bullion bead bows just on my ring nail and thumb. Then something in me wanted to make it into a skittlette! Since I didn't want to screw up my right hand I just painted over what was already there with OPI The Spy Who Loved Me on my middle nail and Essence A Piece of Forever on my pinky. I left my index nail alone to give Gilty the spotlight.
I actually can't believe how many compliments this manicure got. Everyone at the office was grabbing my hand being like no you didn't do this? The cashier at the grocery store freaked out a little too when I told her that I did them myself. lol AND I got my right hand to match! Don't believe me? Here's PROOF!
I wore these for another 2 days until my thumb popped off and I couldn't walk around with a bare thumb. I almost wish these had been my Christmas day nails. I'll have to come up with something else now.
I really do love these and they felt so festive! What do you think of my Gilty embellished nails? Would you wear something like this during the holiday season?
I can't believe we are so close to Christmas! This year has really snuck up on me. I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season my dears!
