Layering: Essie Leading Lady + Essie As Gold As It Gets

I got bored with yesterday's mani of Essie's Leading Lady rather quickly, so I decided to layer As Gold As It Gets over top of it. I am really enjoying all the red & gold combos I have been seeing this season, so I went with my own version.

As Gold As It Gets was one of the polishes released in the Luxe Effect Collection. It is a gold glitter top coat that almost passes for a gold flakie top coat. I really liked how this looked over Leading Lady. I think they blended really well together, and almost looked as though it was one polish instead of one layered over the other. Application was smooth and easy, it was not difficult at all to get an even coat.

2 coats Leading Lady, 1 coat SV, and 1 coat As Gold As It Gets:




I kinda want to keep playing around with this mani. I might put a matte top coat over it and see how that looks, or maybe paint snowflakes on it? Maybe both? I don't know...what do you think??

    I think a matte top coat might be nice to see as well.

    1. I did a matte top coat on one nail to see how it looked, and it wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, I ended up having to do some cleaning at work the next day and got a couple chips on my polish, so had to take it all off anyways. lol.

    1. Thanks! I think it's mainly because I'm not a huge fan of red polish. Funny since I have so many, but I just don't like how it looks on me. I'm more likely to wear something like yellow or teal for long periods of time.
