Green and Gold

This is a manicure that didn't turn out quite how I was imagining but ended up being pretty good anyway.  I was hoping to come up with a turquoise or mint and gold combination but came up short.

This is two coats of Zoya Bevin with a coat-ish of NYX Girls Gilded Glitter dabbed on.  I did not achieve my desired nail look here because Gilded Glitter is gold glitter suspended in a gold base.  This turned Bevin into a darker green than it actually is.

Here's a side by side for comparison:

It's like a whole different base color once the gold is added.  With Gilded Glitter on top, Bevin is more of a army green than the sage it is normally.  I'm now on the look out for a gold topper in a clear base.  Do you have one that you would recommend?


  1. I love the final look but I know how frustrating it can be to get a result you weren't looking for. Essie As Gold As It Gets might work but it's finer then NYX. Aside from that an actual gold topper is probably your best bet.

  2. Even though it's not exactly what you wanted it's really pretty. Great job!
