Rose Gold Sparkly Nails with Pink Accents

Even though it's Friday and that usually means sassy comments, cross-country fist-bumps (sup Jennie?!), pomp, and circumstance, I don't have a ton of that in me for you this week. I almost didn't even want to paint my nails at all, but I'd been on such a streak of posting nail blogs every Friday that it didn't seem like a good move to skip it.

On top of having the debs this week, I also filed my nails waaaaaay down on Monday (on purpose, they needed it)... so I've had even less "canvas" space to work with than usual. Nonetheless, I did have something pretty in mind as inspiration for my nails today... and oddly it was the background clothing rack in the video of a YouTube beauty guru:

I saw the rose gold sparkly dress beside the bright pink dress on that rack and it made me smile. Some things are just pretty, ya know? So here is my version of that duo, using nail polish:


For polishes I used Love & Beauty in what they call "Bronze" but... I dunno, it's rose gold to me. I also used Love & Beauty's Crystal Silver and Sally Hansen's Insta Dri in Presto Pink.





I used two coats of Presto Pink on my ring and thumb nails and three (possibly four?) coats of the rose gold polish on my pointer, middle and pinky nails. Then I applied a coat of Crystal Silver on top of the rose gold to add some extra sparkle. 



The combo of rose gold and crystal silver wasn't really as amazing as I had hoped it would be, ultimately. But it is sparkly... and there's not much wrong with that, especially when feeling down!














Let me know what you've got on your nails today!

  3. I like the alternating colours a lot... I usually only do a different ring finger but I like how it looks with the thumb a different colour too. What a sparkly mani!

  6. I like short nails and that color combo works! I completely understand that desire to not have to do them at times. I've panicked and forced myself to do a manicure on a Thursday night just to make sure I'd have something to post on the Nail Files. It's become such a part of my blogging schedule:-)

  12. I really love that you find inspiration everywhere you look! And I LOVE that you flipped the feature finger concept on its head with three glitter fingers! WHY HAVEN'T I DONE THIS BEFORE? GLITTER IS ALWAYS BETTER! YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME SCREAM AT YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE SO AWESOME! I HOPE THAT YOU DON'T MIND BECAUSE I'M NOT SORRY! HAHAHA! *cross-country fist bump*
