Gold Foil & Holo Nails

Hi Hi! A few days ago I used a gold polish called Bling by Orly and I love it so much that I decided to use it again today! I couldn't help it! I wanted to see what a full nail of it would look like and I wasn't disappointed. I also had something new I wanted to try out so I combined them into a quick design.

I bought a Nail Rock foil kit from Walmart a while back and still hadn't used it so today I gave it a go. The kit came with a black polish but I felt the gold foil would look nice over a deep purple. I started out by painting on two coats of a deep purple on two nails. I used three coats of my favorite gold glitter on two nails. I painted on three coats of a really pretty purple holo with gold flecks on one nail.

When the deep purple was dry  used a air of tweezers to place pieces of the thin gold foil on the nails. I smoothed them down with my finger. I used the gold glitter to add some polka dots to the purple holo nail and added topcoat to all the nails. The ending result was nice and shiny!

Luckily the sun was out so I could see how pretty the gold glitter was! I took pictures of the nails in different lighting but I couldn't catch the true sparkle that the gold nails gave off in person. I did capture the purple holo nail though! In any light the holo was visible but in the shade I could really see the little gold flecks it had.

I'm really happy with how this look turned out! I may actually be starting to like gold a lot more than I did before! I'm also happy with the foil kit, it was super easy to use and looks pretty cool, I'll be trying it out again in silver very soon. 
Thanks for checking out this post and I hope you come back soon :)

Metallic Gradient

Hey there! Today I did a gradient using some pretty metallic polishes. I hadn't gotten around to really using them and they all looked nice together so I decided on a gradient.

I wanted to do a gradient going from the dark silver polish to the gold glitter but when I tried it out I didn't like it much. Instead I did a silver to metallic orange gradient. I still wanted to use the gold glitter so I lightly sponged some over the orange on two nails.

I was really happy with the end result after adding topcoat. It was just so shiny and reflective in a way. The gold glitter was a surprise in the sunlight! I knew it had some holo specks in it but when I saw it in the sunlight I fell in love! That's saying something because I usually don't even like gold polish. The photo above wouldn't even capture how beautiful it was but trust me if you can find Bling by Orly get it!

The whole look also seemed to change in different lighting. It was just really cool to see and I was lucky enough to get some pictures of it! I arranged these pictures so that you could see the whole look go from dark in the first picture to light below.

Fallographic Water Marble

Hello!! Today I have a water marble to share with you! I haven't done a water marble in a while so I just felt like doing one. I picked a creme and two holos for these nails. One of the holos is a really pretty burgundy so I picked out a creme that was a bit close in color. Then I used a dark gray holo to add a bit of darkness.

I love how the gray holo just stands out and that the burgundy holo sort of blends into the creme color. The colors care nice and dark and just feel like Fall. I love it!
