China Glaze Phat Santa & Milani Jewel FX Gold

Hi dear readers :)

Today i'd like to show you a manicure I made some weeks ago. I just got Milani Jewel FX in Gold that day and couldn't wait to try it, but I didn't want to use it as a full manicure... I think I was too lazy for the removal of all those glitters lol :)

Red and gold is a combo that usually works, so I too an untried polish from my stash: China Glaze Phat Santa from Xmas 2010 LE.
Phat Santa is a gorgeous deep red creme, a very sexy shade, but it was a bit sheer and I used 3 coats for a good coverage. That's not in my habits, I rarely use more than two coats, but this one is so pretty despite of that little flaw...

I used Milani Jewel FX Gold as an accent on my ring finger. Here's the result, soooo blingy ! I loved it :)



I had some tip wear on the second day, because of a top coat that I should throw in the trashcan ... I'm sorry to say that, but Catrice bases and top coats don't work at all for me. Their polish and colours are really great for such a price, I'll just don't use their nail care range again ... (except the whitening base which works great but dries fast in the bottle)

So, to hide those awful white tips (I know they are not that bad, but with such a red I really don't like it), I applied some glitters from Milani Gold, like if it had been sponged. I didn't use a sponge, I just tapped the brush to place glitters randomly on my tips. Fast and easy to create :)

I liked how it turned. Now I've tried Milani Gold, I totally need the silver one :p
What do you think ? Do you like that kind of polish or is it too much bling for you ?

If you want to know what it looks like as a full manicure and don't want to wait for a swatch from me, check Scrangie's blog to see her great pics and also what it looks like topped on a purple polish. So yummy !

Have a nice day :)
