Good Morning Polished People!
If you follow me on Twitter you might remember how hyped I was when I got my hands on the WnW Fergie glitters. I got Hollywood Walk of Fame, which kind of underwhelmed me (you can see that post here) and also the black glitter, Tonight’s Gonna Be A Good Night (TGBAGN from here forward). Since the first one was kind of a dud for me (very cute but too juvenile according to me. I got two bottles! Anyone wanna trade?!) I was apprehensive to try this. Also making me so late to share it was the fact that I just wasn’t sure what to layer it over. It’s black with some gold so I wasn’t sure grey was the answer, I obviously didn’t wanna do black, I didn’t really love it over pink when I saw swatches… it was a tricky one. Well, I think I have found the perfect base for it!!! Have a look and tell me what you think!!
Tonight’s Gonna Be A Good Night Layered Nails
If you like these (which I did! :)) check them out with a matte topcoat. The ones you’re about to see…. I LOVE!!!!
- Base coat.
- Apply 2-3 coats of OPI Skull and Glossbones.
- Apply 1-2 coats (I did one with a little dabbing) of WnW TGBAGN. (does anyone think this acronym looks WAYYY to close to “tea bagging” for comfort???)
- Apply a coat of Seche Vite.
- Apply a coat of Essie Matte About You (this is technically optional but I definitely recommend it!!!)
- Show yo’ friends!!
I absolutely LOVED these nails!!! I loved them matte because for one, I just love matte glitter of any sort, and two, I thought it made the gold reflect in an interesting way. I will definitely be doing these nails again. Skull and Glossbones was just the perfect base because it’s not so grey that the gold looks weird, yet it’s not exactly beige so the gold brings out too much gold in the beige. A greige is the best option for this polish, if you ask me!
How do you feel about these nails?! What other color combos should I try with this glitter? I think I’m going to try a glitter sandwich with it and my grey Nfu Oh Jelly Syrup polish. I think the grey over the gold and black will look really cool. Stay tuned for that! Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!!
