So on today's nails, I did a gold themed French tipped mani... but funk-tified! My base color is Essence Irreplaceable. This is a light tan with gold flecks that I matte-ified. It was so pretty when it was shiny but I wanted to give it a contrast to the tips. To complete the look, I used scotch tape to create a two stripe French with OPI Glitzerland.
Don't they kinda look like I dipped them into gold? =P
This mani was so hard to capture on camera!
Such a contrast in sizes heheh
I think this could be an awesome mani for a toga party or any Greek/Roman goddess type of Halloween look. It's not too crazy for every day wear either! I believe the Essence brand polishes were once an exclusive European brand but can now actually be found in the US at Ulta stores! Considering the mini size, the quality of the polish and brush were really great - and for $1 it's a heck of a steal. They had a good selection at mine so it was a win win for me. I *have* heard that they are going to be discontinuing some shades so this is an incentive to go out there and get them before they disappear forever!
