The Beauty Buffs: Gold vs. Silver

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all today?  I'm doing alright.  I built myself a gingerbread house yesterday and it looks quite adorable.  I'll have to take a photo and share it on my Facebook and Instagram.  It's quite relaxing doing little crafts like that.

Today is Wednesday and I am back posting along with The Beauty Buffs.  This week the theme is Gold vs. Silver.  If I had to wear gold or silver the rest of my life, I would pick silver.  I have a few pieces of gold jewelry, but my silver pieces is always what I gravitate towards.  The same goes for polish.  While I have been known to use gold for accents, silver is used a lot more.

December is the perfect time to use both silver and gold, especially when it's close to Christmas.  After seeing this adorable Santa Claus manicure by the lovely Rina from Simply Rins, I decided that the little guy would look perfect surrounded by some silver nails!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:

  • FingerPaints - Glitz and Glam
  • INM - Silver Northern Lights Christmas Edition
  • Zoya - Taylor
  • Acrylic Paints
I think this manicure looks awesome with silver!  Honestly, if I used gold nails, I don't think I would like it as much.  I used two coats of Glitz and Glam from the FingerPaints Holiday Glitz manicure kit.  Such an awesome silver polish.   It reminds me of my go to favorite OPI This Crown Needs a Gown.  It applies evenly in two coats and has such a sparkle and shine to it that the satin OPI has.

I topped it off with a coat of the new INM Northern Lights Christmas topper.  Just when I thought Northern Lights couldn't get any better, INM created a holiday edition of their gold and silver holo toppers.  These toppers include shiny red and green glitters which are beyond sparkly.  I had to dab some of the glitters on to fill in empty spaces, but overall the topper was great!

I followed Rina's tutorial to get the little guy on my nail.  Since my nails are shorter than hers, I didn't add a smile or the little pink cheeks like she had.  I still think he's adorable without it!  He looks right at home with the silver.

What do you think?  Liking this Christmas design?  Are you a fan of silver or gold?

Let's see what the Beauty Buffs have to say about gold and silver!

Until next time, <3.
