Hey There! This month’s TLR pick was Siobhan’s and she chose gold for our color collab post. Anyone that knows me knows I am usually a hater of gold, however V is the ultimate gold lover. She is slowly turning me on to more and more gold looks, but shh don’t tell her I said that.
I have a couple of different options but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to go with for this look. I ended up with my least favorite of the Nordic Collection which is Opi with a nice Fin-nish. This is a very ‘pearly’ gold if you will with hints of bronze not straight gold. I usually hate those types of finishes where you can see every brush stroke and this is of course no exception! LOL! I decided to gradient Cirque’s Trousseau and with that I now absolutely love it! Who’da thunk? My mani started to look very fall like so I then took my new MoYou stamp Mother Nature Plate 07 and Sally Hansen’s Forbidden fudge and added a leaf accent to each nail.
This is for you V, I hope it’s gold enough for ya 😉
Here is an angle picture so you can see the change and it’s a little more vibrant with the leaves
Lastly, this picture is a little dark but again shows the vibrancy of all colors together I absolutely love this color combo.
Well there is my gold mani, I don’t do em often so this shows how much I love V that I went this Gold. lol
On a side note, today as many of you know not just in the US but the rest of the world today is 9/11. Especially those of you in the US I’m sure remember exactly where you were and what you were doing this day 13 years ago, so it seems almost silly to say ‘never forget’ none of us ever will. Today though, even more so, try to remind yourself of everything you have, be grateful, call a loved one and tell them you love them, do a pay it forward deed today. Say a prayer for or just honor those that lost their lives by living yours to the fullest and being thankful that we live in a free country, as there are many that lost their lives since that day, both Military and civilians trying to keep our country safe and free. ❤
I knew eventually I’d start turning you guys into gold likers HA!
Yes yes yes V likes a lot :D!!! Mama approves
I used to absolutely hate gold and swear I would only wear silver for the rest of my life, but I have come around to it a bit. However, after this week…not sure it’s going to be making an encore appearance on my nails anytime soon, lol.
I like your gradient…just pack more and more gold into that mani! 😉
haha right!! Thanks dear 😉
Beautiful gold mani. I have not tried a gold polish yet. I think I need to 🙂
Yes, on 9-11 our world was forever changed. I think we have moved on, become stronger and more proud, but we will never forget that day.
The mani is gorgeous! Gives a really lovely autumn feeling, exactly the part I love, with all of the colourful maple leaves falling down on a sunny day.
Thanks so much!! 🙂
