Manicure Magic

20 Feb


So someone gave me a very unexpected gift and I loved it! I am a bit of a nail polish addict. Okay I am totally obsessed and I change my manicures like twice a week. But I do try to be frugal when it comes to spending out of control on my polishes. So this gift I got was really meaningful to me. I got a bottle of Essie “as gold as it gets” which is a luxe effects topcoat with real gold flakes in it!!! Now as a general rule I am not a fan of yellow gold. In fact it really reminds me a metal pee pee but I digress. But because it is such a high end polish I really wanted to try it. And it was breath taking!! I only used it on two nails but wow! I used Julep “Viola” which is a very dark purple as a base coat. The gold seemed to have holographic flecks in it and it went on in a perfect thin coat, exactly like a topcoat should. I could not take any pictures that would do the gold color justice.  And that makes me so mad!! So if you can find a bottle of it, snatch it up because it will change your world.
