NOTD- Gold finger

Hello Lovelies!

Whenever I choose a block colour for my nails I always tend to go for pastel or bright colours, especially coral and barbie pink, so for something a bit different I thought I'd try out the metallic nail trend, because apart from using metallic colours when I do leopard print nails I never wear them. I tried out one of my Mum's gold varnishes from avon to see if I'd like the effect...

I really do love the effect of this nail polish and it only took two coats to become an opaque colour which was great as I think thin and watery metallic colours that don't cover your nails properly don't look very good. I think metallic colours, particularly gold, are really big at the moment because everyone wants to try and achieve that nail foils look at home. It's also a perfect autumnal colour, goes with any outfit and looks rather glamorous, demonstrated perfectly by Rihanna who is wearing gold minx nails-   

So now I think I shall be investing in a range of metallic foil effect nail polishes, as I don't know if I could achieve great results but doing actual foils at home. I've know from reading that Barry M do really good gold and silver foil effect polishes, so I think I'll be checking them out very soon!

What do you think of metallic nails? Have you tried actual foils or any foil effect nail polishes?

I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
Love Meg
