The One With the Gold Snowflakes

9:00:00 AM

Good morning Polished World!  How are you all doing today?  Welcome to another Saturday!  This is actually my first Saturday off in a while and I couldn't be happier.  I shouldn't say anything because I'm going to jinx it and end up at work.  At least my nails are painted, unlike that one weekend that  I was called in and went in with naked nails.  First time in about 6 years since that's happened.

Today's nail art is by far one of my favorite designs that I've ever created.  I saw a similar design on Pinterst and knew I had to re-create it.  Now, you know me, I'm not a fan of gold, but this manicure wouldn't have looked right with silver.  Plus, in the past when I've created gold and white nail art, I've always fallen in love with the look.  Something about those two shades together just works.  This manicure is no exception.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • China Glaze - Merry Whatever
  • China Glaze - Big Hair and Bubbly
  • Faby - Panic on Wall Street
Fitting that the gold base under all that glitter is Faby "Panic on Wall Street" seeing as there was literally panic on wall street this week.  But this isn't a blog about stocks, we are here about the nail art.  Let's talk about this Faby Nail Lacquer.  I received these polishes a few years ago and used them a few times.  I'm not even sure if the company is still around, but if they are you should check them out.  This gold polish is amazing.  Two coats and you have a fabulous shimmery gold base.  When it was dried, I went through and added the two China Glaze glitters to make it really pop.

The Faby polish was perfect for nail art.  I used it with a toothpick to create the snowflake on my ring finger and thumb.  Some polishes drag, get goopy, or just are not workable for nail art, but this wasn't the case.  I'm starting to picture what other gold designs I can use it for in the future.  Oooo, maybe a waterfall design like I did on the last manicure I posted.

Best part - the glitter gradient on my index and pinkie finger.  I told you I'm low key obsessed with the glitter gradient, especially since I mastered them in the past few months.  For this one, I first used Merry Whatever as it was a finer glitter, then went through with Big Hair and Bubbly to add some random larger flecks.  Both polishes sponged on perfectly.

Saddest thing about this manicure, it only lasted two days because I am at the bottom of my white polish and it's not applying right anymore.

What do you think?  Fan of this design?  Like the gold and white?

Until next time, <3.
