The 2014 People’s Choice Awards were full of interesting manicures. While I may never be able to forgive Jennifer Hudson for wearing Essie Belugaria (seriously with that nail polish!), I really loved Sarah Bareilles’ simple manicure. It was a color combination I would have never tried myself.
To recreate Sarah’s manicure I used OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. for the gold nails (her gold polish had a more metallic finish; a polish like Essie Good as Gold would give a more true to her look result). Because of my skintone I can’t really pull of a metallic gold so I went with something a bit more flattering. And then for the red accent nail I used OPI Over and Over A-Gwen.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this manicure on me but I ended up quite liking it. It felt fancy and like it would be appropriate for a formal event.
