So, as soon as I finish a manicure and photograph it, I tend to make a note with the name of the mani and the colors I used. I fill in the text later. Right now, I am trying very hard to figure out why I wanted to name this “nude explosion.” I mean yah, its mostly flesh-toned (which was unintentional, I wanted glittery and contrasting) but …explosion? Anyway, here we are.
My inspiration for this mani came from All Nails Everything. Unfortunately, I keep forgetting that my current go-to gold, Penny Talk by Essie is not actually a gold but rather a pinkish rose gold. I NEED TO GET A REAL GOD POLISH ugh. This mani was supposed to be gold and copper with purple, not pink and copper. So it doesn’t quite work. That being said, I still love the purple-grey of Rue with the purple glitter base of Faye!
~ Purple grey nude: Zoya – Rue
~ Rose gold: Essie – Penny Talk
~ Copper: Pure Ice – Magic
~ Gold glitter: Zoya – Faye
The golden studs were actually initially purple, I painted them with Penny Talk so they matched the mani. It’s surprisingly fun!
Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow, we get MORE blue (seriously, there are three blue manis this week. I’m apparently on a blue kick).
