A2Z Challenge: G is for gold



I look way better in silver than in gold, so I’d chose silver over gold any day. But approaching Christmas fast now, I thought it’s time to use a golden fleck polish from Sally Hansen that I bought over a year ago: Gilded Lily!

I added red and gold to make it more Christmassy, and here’s my final mani:


It’s basically two coats of Gilded Lily, which covers really well, and then half the nail is painted with Morgan Taylor’s Best Dressed. That’s a red to orange/gold shimmer. Then I’ve made a couple of green lines with Morgan Taylor’s Wrapped in Riches, a lovely green/teal shimmer. A couple of golden dots and a layer of topcoat, and I was done.


I wanted to make it more detailed, perhaps more lines, but my nails aren’t quite big enough for that, so this’ll have to do.


Here are the pretty Christmassy colours I used:

Sally Hansen: Gilded Lily; Morgan Taylor: Wrapped in Riches & Best Dressed


The challenge next week is holo. I may have a luxury problem when I’m picking my polish for that challenge…


I can’t wait to see what all the other girls came up with!
