My first Christmas mani! Ok, so I’m Jewish, but that doesn’t stop me from loving all the holiday colors. And glitter. And mooched gifts 😀 This is also my entry for Week 2 of the Nail Art Canada challenge: Decorations (also, go vote)!
Of all the textured polishes out there, the one I had been lemming the hardest was Solange, by Zoya. I hate the color yellow (really, I do), but something about this super glittery golden yellow just spoke to me. I waited quite a few months, but finally caved on Halloween! Solange was 90% opaque in one coat, but I added a second just to be sure. Unlike most textured polishes, where there is glitter IN the polish but the base is a creme, I’m pretty sure Solange’s base is glitter. So much glitter. And sparkle. I love this polish. Two coats, fast dry time, excellent control with application.
I have a bad habit of doodling swirls during lecture (when I should be paying attention so I can teach recitation later in the week), and one of the doodles looked cool enough that I wanted it on my fingers! So I pulled out my two mani Zoya holiday colors, and went to work.
I think I like my accent nail best, with the color divide and 3D appearance of Solange, but I needed to swatch it! So the other fingers are primarily golden.
- Gold: Zoya – Solange
