New Job!

Black and Gold Nail Polish

So, this summer has been full of ups and downs, and super inconsistent posting.  But, I am proud to announce a shift in my career.  Last Friday I was hired, started on Monday, and I feel it is going to be a really positive move in my life.  Because of the time crunch and the hard work, a simple paint job for my nails was necessary.  I decided to go with the colors of the new school I am at, with some black and gold.

Sally Hansen

These were the only two polishes needed for this simple, shiny mani.  I began with two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Golden-I on all of my nails.  This is the most beautiful gold polish I have ever used!  It goes on easily and is very metallic.  Then, to get the black (and a touch of white) on there, I topped off my nails with Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Clearly Spotted.  This is another fave of mine.  It’s hard to tell in the pic, but the bottle is half empty, and when it is all gone, I will be sad.

The finished product was fast and I liked it.  It was a good way to sport some new school spirit on the job for the first week, too.

Thanks for reading!

Sally Hansen

I like to try a lot of combinations on my toes before my fingers, especially in winter.  Then I can check it out at home and see how I feel about it.  I began with Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear in Golden-I on all my nails.  Then, I topped it off with Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Midnight Glitz.  This polish has matte black pieces, metallic gold pieces, and holographic glitter pieces.

Overall, I am happy with the results.  The glitter polish went on fairly easily, so I have no problem with using it.  Here’s the final look.

All That Glitters is Gold

Golden NailsAs November ends, I was looking through my polish trying to find a nice mani to wear for all the family get-togethers this weekend.  I truly love glitter in all things, but was trying not to be too flashy.

Fall PolishI decided on golden nails.  They can be sparkly and fun, but not over the top.

Xtreme Wear Golden-I

I began with two coats of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Golden-I.  (I recently saw this in the store and it looked copper…I have had mine for about a year now, and it is truly gold.)  I was happy with it, and then I thought, if this is good, more is better.  🙂

OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum

I topped my nails off with a layer of OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum, which is a flaky glitter polish that has gold, silver, and copper pieces.  It catches the light without being gaudy.

The finished product were cute, metallic nails, that have enough shine to keep me smiling, and are subdued enough to wear to any family member’s house.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed it!
