Pixi – Gilded Garnet

Pixi - Gilded GarnetI’ve got to say, Pixi has definitely stepped up their nail polish game over the past year. It’s almost like Petra mixes her polishes just for me. Really. Classy Cocoa, Nude Dazzle, and now Gilded Garnet. Perfection.

Gilded Garnet is my newest obsession. In the bottle it looked to be a molten brown, but I could tell there was something special swirling around. In the light, Gilded Garnet lights up and looks a lot like what its name (and the pixi website) would suggest:  a deep burnished maroon with gold shimmer.

I used two coats for my swatches and I’m currently making this my pedi color of the week. I never go matchy-matchy, but I can make an exception.

Pixi polish is available at Target as well as on the Pixi website – free shipping on all orders over $25! Pixi is periodically on Hautelook.
