Golden Frames with Inglot and Zoya

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Friday! 

  I'm kicking this weekend off in a neutral, but eye- catching look. True story: I HATE Brown nail polish. I don't know why, because they generally look so freaking good on my nails... But I just don't like Brown... I find it boring.... So, needless to say I was not suuuper excited to try Louise from the Zoya Cashmere Fall Collection. But, I was HELL BENT on making myself enjoy this color, because in "normal land" this is a really pretty color... It's just in "Cris Land" that beautiful browns like these don't fly hahaha. So, I went for some glittery frames using one of my new Inglot Striping nail art polishes. I went with #66 Golden holographic glitter stripper to compliment my neutral, Chocolaty brown base.

 I will be reviewing Louise later on, along with the rest of the Cashmere's. The formula was amazing though. For this post I want to focus a bit more on the glitter striping polish from Inglot. Inglot released an AWESOME rage of striping polishes, which are packed with sparkly goodness and a fine striping brush. I wish the brush on the Inglot strippers was a bit thinner and longer, but it works well if you move patiently. The frames were really easy to do! I had never tried this look before, I was surprised at how quickly and easy they were to do. I finished this look off with two coats of KBShimmer Clearly on top, top coat.

  So, can I honestly say I like this mani? No, I LOVE it! Who knew little Golden frames on a Chocolaty base could be so chic and pretty? I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed this look and happy to have found a way to enjoy a Brown nail polish. 

 What is a color polish you just CANNOT get into? Have you found ways to rock it?

  1. It looks great! I am kind of like that--I never wear brown on its own. But in nail art it can be great, and if you use it in some colour-blocking combinations it's nice. Brown with turquoise and silver? Fabulous! Brown with pink and white? Neapolitan ice cream! It has its uses. It also looks great here with this gold holo glitter :D well done!

    Pretty look!! The gold glitter is just lovely, neutrals in general are not my thing AT ALL, I guess I like bright colours over a neutral base cause it makes the brights pop more :)

  5. It is OK I HATE brown polishes too! It is boring...and just (Ill say it) poop like. Hey at least you tried making it more suitable to your liking! I don't wear straight up brown but I can rock reds with brown undertones if I have to!

  9. Not at all interested in fall anything...and this looks like fall to me - we are in for the hottest part of the year here really soon - ugh...but this is sooo pretty - maybe by Nov when it cools down I will try this one - might even make me like my brown polishes which I bought many of and found only maybe 2 I like on me! This is really cool...I don't have a great gold stripper polish but I do have some great golds and will just use a nail art brush.

  16. Wow, this really is a fab look! I have to try that out at some point =) I really do like brown polish, but not so much gold, so maybe I can give my gold polishes some love with this look!
