Monday Mani: Festive Gold ♥
I love gold polish during the winter months, and really just whenever I feel like it.
Gold nail polish for me is a pretty standard manicure. But, during the holiday season, I like to dress my manicures up with a little glitter. So, I was really excited when I realized I could combine two polishes from my A Brush with Fate nail polish set from Disney's Cinderella by Sephora collection to create a pretty gold nail!
Because I wanted this to be a lighter, yet more opaque color, I started with Essie's Blanc, then added a couple coats of Self-Maid Millionaire from the Cinderella collection for the basic gold - I love the name of that color! I think it is probably the most creative name in the whole collection.
Finally, I finished off with Rags to Rhinestones, just like I did in my last Mani Monday post, Winter Princess. This is a really cool color, because it changes color depending on the light, and what colors you have with it. So, while in the Winter Princess manicure, it gave off more of a silvery color, with Self-Maid Millionaire, it gives off more of a gold or coppery sheen.
