I was feeling like some gold today! :)

At first I thought, OPI's Dazzled By Gold would be perfect. I really love this color! It was a Holiday Ulta Exclusive last year and I really wish I had another bottle of it :( All of these pictures were taken in indoors light without flash and are 2 coats.


But my kids weren't digging it at all. And the second they saw it, they had no qualms telling me that it was ugly and I should change it. Don't you just love kids' honesty? Well, I am teaching them (or trying my best to) that honesty is always the best policy, so I can't even get mad at them for telling me their honest opinion, right? Needless to say, I took it off.

I went through my untrieds this time and got Paradoxal out. It's my first time actually using it for more than a swatch. I have to say, I really like it! It doesn't have that shimmer indoors like it does in sunlight. But it's still like a murky grey, purple, brownish color. Can't make up it's mind and I like it! Here are a few pictures of it. All are 2 coats and no top coat!

I left the topcoat off because like I said, I was in a gold mood today. So I topped it with 1 thick coat of Illusion D'Or and then top coat :) Here are the pictures of that concoction.

And a little video to show you how pretty it all looks in real life. Cause you know pictures don't always do polishes the justice they deserve. Taken in direct sunlight :)



Well, that's it from me! I probably won't be changing my polish till Sunday, so you guys have a great rest of the week and a fun and safe weekend!
