Gold Foil French Mani

Happy Chinese New Year!!!

It's the year of the Dragon, according to the lunar calendar, and I thought what better way to ring in the luck than with some gold on my tips!


Okay its not actually gold foil, but large hex-shaped gold glitter I layered on :P But really, that doesn't sound anywhere near as decadent right?


And to get in the true spirit of things, I had to throw in some red for luck. >_>;;That may or may not be a Christmas ornament from a tree that might still be up....


But enough of my rambling, I'm sure you're all curious to know what polish I lacquered up with to obtain this ostentatious look.

And if you're thinking that it looks familiar then you'd be correct! It's Milani Jewel FX in Gold ~ which I've previous used on: Glitter PartyPedicure & Sail Away with Panda Nails


My favorite aspect of this polish is definitely the sparkle! And I don't mean delicate, frosty glitter, I mean all out big, bling in your face facets. Just lookit the reflections being cast on nearby nails, Emergency! Someone please alert the Dazzle Police!


I think of all the nails I've posted here this manicure was definitely the most attention grabbing so far. I had many admirers comment on my nails, (even at work!) probably because of all that shiny glitter dazzling out your eyes!


So hope you all have a delicious, food filled Lunar New year! :3 (best part in my opinion) With lots of luck in store for the year of the Dragon!

  1. I like these nails so much! I wish mine were long enough to do this. Up close the glitter looks like dragon scales!
