New 31 Day Challenge - Day 3 - Gold

Hey everyone! For whatever reason, when I was looking at the schedule for the challenge, I thought today's challenge was for pink. I had my pink manicure ready to go this morning...only to realize that I was supposed to do a gold manicure. Oops. Then I found out that a new Hakuoki game came out (if anyone knows what I'm talking about I will cry tears of joy); I had to get that ASAP. So, here's something I quickly put together for today's challenge. Unfortunately, they all smeared other than the index finger. I'll try to better next time! Today I learned that I have eight different shades of gold foil polish...Sometimes I think I need to de-stash. I used four of the gold polishes for this manicure.
I don't even know what I was going for with this manicure. The lightest gold is Sephora by OPI Self-Maid Millionaire. From there, we have Catherine Arley 807 on the side, Zoya Ziv with the leopard print, and A England Holy Grail (Old Version) with the lace at the tip.  The side design is from BM-19, and the lace and leopard print are from the Konad m57 plate. I used tape to keep the stamps in their intended sections, and finished it off by using a black glittery striper.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the gorgeous nails of the wonderful ladies participating in this challenge along with me!

  1. lol that's funny. When doing this challenge I realized I don't have many golds...maybe two? haha
    I love the way this looks! Unless you look really close, you can't tell there are any smudges! :D

    1. Two seems like a good amount to have! Far more reasonable. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. :D

    2. Like Traci, I only have two actual gold polishes and I didn't like either of them so that's why I opted for glitter instead!
