31 day challenge - day#3 gold

Day three of the new 31 day challenge has arrived and the theme is 'gold'. Gold is indulgent, elegant and is a very royal colour to me. Whiz, bang *light-bulb moment* I decided to do a gold manicure fit for a queen and  I just had to include purple too :)

The polishes I used for this manicure:

  • Revlon's Bold Sangria 
  • Essence's Gold Fever
  • Essence's peel off base coat {works great for removing glitter} 
  • Essence's A Piece of Forever {middle finger stamping}
A quick side-note, all of these polishes are fantastic. Bold Sanngria is a rich purple and a one-coater (oh joy!) and I'm having a love affair with Gold Fever at the moment. 

In real-life this is a lot more sparkly and looks absolutely divine, very elegant. I'm loving the combo of purple + gold. 

It's going to a hot couple of days ahead, I think we will be lucky if it drops below 30 degrees for a few days and tonight it is suppose to stay around 23 degrees (Celsius). My silly (but very adorable dog) is grumpy with me at the moment because I won't let her go outside and lay in the sun. Personally, I would have thought the cool air-conditioned kitchen would have been a pleasurable place to be on a day like this! Lol!!! Oh and by the way I know 'blogger' is telling you that I posted this on the 2nd but here in Australia it is already the 3rd....I'm definitely not an organised blogger. I only did this manicure an hour ago!

Thanks for reading and take care,
