SinfulColors Gilded

SinfulColors Gilded COVERThanksgiving is tomorrow! I am so excited. I adore Thanksgiving. Tuesday and Wednesday are my prep days (I made pecan pie yesterday) which makes Thanksgiving day much more enjoyable.

SinfulColors sent me some of their holiday glitters and Gilded stood out to me because it doesn’t scream Christmas. I felt like Gilded would be totally appropriate to rock before Thanksgiving. Not only have I worn this glitter on its own I used it to create a fantastically fall manicure (though I completely ruined that manicure cracking pecans).

Gilded is a lovely polish. The base is a sheer pink leaning gold mircoshimmer that is packed with larger red glitter. The formula is thin though not runny. I used three coats in my swatches and while it’s definitely still sheer it somehow works with this polish.

What I think is so awesome about this polish is it looks like a neutral despite the fact that it’s glittery fun. I don’t think anyone would bat an eye if I wore this in a conservative work environment.

While this polish is totally wearable on its own I did use it over a deep red (Stand By Your Man from deborah lippmann I’ve Gotta Be Me 15th anniversary set…review of that coming very, very soon) to create a lovely manicure. There are swatches of that under the jump along with swatches of Gilded on its own.

Gilded is part of the SinfulColors permanent line so it should be easy to track down. It’s quite the versatile polish to have in your collection!

deborah lippmann Dream Weaver

deborah lippmann Dream Weaver COVER deborah lippmann’s Fantastical collection keeps coming with the hits! Today I have Dream Weaver to share. deborah lippmann describes it as a mesmerizing mood explosion which is totally appropriate because this polish reminds me of a mood ring from the 90s (especially in the bottle). And that’s a good thing! Dream Weaver is, to say […] Continue reading →

Barielle Midnight in Paris

Barielle Midnight in Paris COVER If there is one store I should avoid it is World Market. I mean, it has EVERYTHING I buy too much of. Candles. Wine. Foreign food items. Kitchen products. Glass wear. Soap. Throw pillows. It’s literally the best store ever. But I found myself in World Market the other day and spotted the most perfect […] Continue reading →

China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You

China Glaze Choo-Choo Choose You COVER Y’all, I am obsessed with this nail polish. The China Glaze All Aboard collection for fall 2014 didn’t immediately impress me. I actually passed on all the polishes for quite a long time. But when I was browsing holiday collection I saw Choo-Choo Choose You from their fall collection and just had to try it.

1960’s Nails

1960's Nails I find nail polish trends to be fascinating. I did a post on 1920’s nails when The Great Gatsby film came out and enjoyed reading about what was considered in at the time and why. My foray into 1960’s nails didn’t come due to a film but because of Halloween. This year I went as […] Continue reading →
