Good morning! Today, I'll be bringing you two polishes I was given for Christmas! My boyfriend got me the 14 piece elf polish set (among many other polishes!). I have already shown Blush and Flirty Fuschia in my leopard print design I did for week one of FingerFood's Theme Buffet.
This will be a pic-heavy post as I wanted to provide swatch pictures of both elf Blush on its own, as well as with Sinful Colors Gilded layered over top. Blush is a rose-gold metallic polish that is a one-coater! I tend to be drawn to shades like this since it is work appropriate, but still fun! That and I like the quick dry time and ease of only having to do one coat of polish.
Gilded is a gift I received from my mom from Christmas! Before I even sent her the link to my Pinterest board wishlist (which Gilded is on) - she had already picked this polish out for me. Great minds!
Gilded is a glitter topper from Sinful Colors Glitz and Glittered collection that came out in the early part of last fall. Gilded is dark red glitter in a golden shimmery base. It is pretty sheer on its own, so I chose to layer it over Blush. In these pictures, there is one coat of Gilded over top of Blush.
It's a subtle change, but the golden shimmer really changes the base color of Blush. While I would consider Blush to be a rose-gold shade it looks even rosier with Gilded layered over top. This mani sparkled so much in the sun!
I actually wore this polish combination last weekend and had little to no tip wear or chips by the time I took it off Sunday night. I also knew I needed to change my polish since this mani sort of gives off a maroon and gold vibe - and there was no way I was going to wear those colors for the National Championship game Monday night! I was cheering for Auburn, but unfortunately, Florida State pulled it out in the end.
