Winter and the holiday season means dark nails and dark lips! My singing group is performing at a few holiday parties this year, so I’m excited to glitz it up this month, starting with my nails!
I started off with a base coat of Pacifica’s Red Red Wine. This is a polish I received in my September 2014 ipsy bag, and I LOVE it! It’s very opaque and applies without streaks, but I like to apply 2 coats so it gets a little darker. My only issue is that it stains my nails like crazy, even through a base coat, so I have to make sure the base coat is completely dry before applying or I will have red tinted nails for a while! Bonus points for being “7 free,” aka free of parabens, phthalates, toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animal byproducts. The brush is vegan too!
The glitz is e.l.f.’s Gold Star. I’ll be posting my e.l.f. haul this week, but one of the items I bought was a 10 piece nail polish set, which included this pretty gold glitter polish. I just wanted a few pieces of glitter, so one coat was more than enough. I love the way it looks!
