Gold Tipped

Remember the gold polish I got from here?

I did another look with it.

It's rather simple, suited for the fall or winter, probably.

Kinda grunge.

As you can see from my middle finger in the first picture, the gold polish smudges quite easily. I gotta be careful about exactly how dry it is before I move on with doing things. But it shows up okay. 

Have you guys ever been to Sprinkles Cupcakes? I've gone there for Valentine's Day, but I've been there since then as well to take advantage of their free cupcake. The thing is, I get so guilty just asking for a free cupcake that I purchased water that was way too expensive. It's cute bottle, so I thought that I'd include it in some type of picture. Reuse--in all ways.


  1. Your nails look so cool with the gold tips. I'll have to try this sometime this fall. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Love the gold on you! I'm the worst at waiting for polish to dry.

  3. I use this technique quite frequently! Once again, loved the gold and the black together! ^^

  4. AMAZING, i wish i was good at painting my own nails! i do want to try this though! :))

  12. They came out great. Sprinkles cupcakes are so yummy!


  13. SewPetiteGal - This one really isn't bad to free hand. My hands aren't as much shaky as just... uncoordinated.

    Blace - There are topcoats that work for that! I'm just too cheap to get them.

    Deppa - It'd be great if it were spring where ever you went.


Thanks for your comments!
