I give up on nail art. Other than adding a few dots, I can’t do it. So I will be satisfied with nail polish or nail polish with toppers.
This week I’ve been trying out two shades that came my way recently.
The first is Deborah Lippmann Raspberry Beret. I got this mini in my giant goody bag from Barney’s in September. I’m still making my way through all the great stuff I got. This is described as a “flecked berry holographic”. It looks to me like a berry red crelly with rose gold glitter. It’s so beautiful in person. I’m afraid I haven’t covered it well with this photo. Using an acetone remover makes it easier to get this shade off.
My second option just arrived in my December 2015 ipsy bag: Formula X Nail Color in Revved Up, a light rose gold metallic. This is the first time I’ve tried Formula X, and I am so impressed. Many metallics streak or accent the bumps in my nails. Not so Revved Up from Formula X. One coat really would have been enough, but I wanted to make sure it would last so I put on a second coat. It dried quickly to a gorgeous rose gold metallic sheen. Love this formula. I must try some more from this line.
