nails of the week: gold and green

I have been feeling a little less than excited about my nail art lately. So much of the nail art I see on pinterest is just not practical. Too many coats and baubles. I need my nails to be dry and done in around an hour. I also need my manicure to last at least four days (more coats=more chips, in my experience). So, I started following this blog to get inspired. So many of her designs are practical and (somewhat) quick. Like this one, the waterfall. I used my two favorite colors (spanish moss and buttercup) as inspiration and matched the other colors accordingly. I used two different gold glitters. The Avon gold is fine and the Petites gold is chunky. I think they turned out pretty cute. I like how the tip is lighter and they sparkle, a lot. I will definitely try this design again with different colors. 


  1. Wow, that's gorgeous! It reminds me of Christmas. I don't have a lot of patience with my nails.

    1. Thanks. I will have to remember to do a version of this around Christmas.

  2. Sooo pretty!!! I'm in love with your nails!
