The first mani you're seeing is four coats of NYX Paradise and one coat of Chanel Illusion D'Or.
I did this mani twice in a row because when I was nearly finished the first time, the NYX bottle knocked over and spilled all over the floor (and my p.j. pant leg)!
You ever try cleaning up a spill with freshly painted, still wet nails? Yeah, doesn't work.
Anyway, this was pretty and I enjoyed it.
Here I did Inglot 320, two coats, topped with a coat of Inglot 203.
The flakes on top of the frost gave it quite a bit of texture, but I still think it's kind of cool!
It reminds me of a crazy Christmas Tree ornament my mom has. It's a metallic, frosty pickle. Yeah, a pickle. Something to do with a German tradition or...something.
Then I threw on a coat of China Glaze Sour Apple and a coat of Matte Magic!
This is my current mani, MAC Originality, two coats. It's a coppery frost with copper flakes.
It is a dead-one match for Urban Decay's Baked color! I have the eye shadow and the eyeliner. I think of them as my Baked nails.
I love this color, but am not in love with it on my skin tone. I think it's do-able, though.
Also reminds me of shiny pennies...with texture.
