Golden Nugget

Today is a very special and day for me. My husband and I are celebrating our second anniversary and I wanted to make a special franken polish just for him. He's always been wonderfully supportive and hardly even looks at me funny when I come home with new polishes and then spend hours playing with them. He'll probably also be thrilled to know that I'm sharing this with all of you (get prepared for some extreme cheesiness)- my nickname for him is Nugget because he's like a gold nugget and I got lucky enough to find him. That was my inspiration for this super gold shade.

The exciting part of today is that I am now officially www.nerdyfornails.com. I bought my domain name tonight! It was pretty quick and easy, but I'm still having a hard time believing it's true. I've been double checking my own website just to make sure it's still working. I feel like a proper fancy blogger now. :)



Golden Nugget is almost equal parts of these six different polishes:
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, Gilty Party- metallic polish with a hint of copper
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, Golden Rule- fine gold glitter
Spoiled, Champagne Siren- a slightly yellow-toned fine gold glitter
NYC, Top of the Gold Top Coat- gold flakies
Victoria's Secret, Runway Angel- a mix of fine and chunky glitter
Wet n Wild Fastdry, The Gold & the Beautiful- sheer gold shimmer


The macro really shows off those gold flakies and coppery flecks. The formula is a bit sheer. I've got on three coats here and you can still see a bit of nail line, but it's super shiny. I don't have on any top coat in these pictures and it still catches a ton of light. I think it's a great polish for a great occasion.
