NOTD: Nude and Glitter

I am slowly beginning to realise that most of my blog posts are literally what I'm wearing on my nails that day.. woops. Oh well, I hope you enjoy them anyway.

Today I really didnt know what to wear on my nails so I went to my failsafe, gold glitter. I used Deborah Lippmann's Boom Boom Pow a lot over christmas layered over greens and reds and it looked really festive. This time I decided to layer it over Nails Inc's Basil Street, one of my favourite nude polishes. I used 2 coats of Basil Street then one coat of Boom Boom Pow on top.

Normally the gold glitter can look pretty obvious, but layered over a nude polish the glitter looks a little more subtle. I am so happy I bought Boom Boom Pow, at first I balked at the price but I use it so much and so often that its totally worth it.


  1. So pretty! I love Basil Street, this is such a lovely combo!

  2. Love these nails! I'm always quite fearful of glitter and tend to just use on one nail, this dotty glitter effect looks a bit more grown up though than the sparkly OPI that I've been using. Lovely blog, The Best Beauty Buys xx
