Black and Gold

Hello my lovelies! Oh Saturday, how long have I waited for you! It's been a crazy busy week and I'm really sorry I haven't had much time for blogging and doing my nails. On Thursday I went to the local premiere of The Great Gatsby and it was amazing. Seriously, whether you are a Leo fan like me or not, you need to see this movie. It's spectacular! I really wanted to do some themed nails for the premiere but ran out of time and energy so I did something really simple and elegant. 

I was inspired by the movie poster that has a combo of black and gold. I rarely wear gold as a full manicure because I don't think it looks good on my skin tone, but I was happy to finally try my a-england Holy Grail for the first time. This is the new version of the polish. As you may or may not know, the old version was a very yellow type of gold, so it would have looked really bad on me. The new version on the other hand is cooler, although it's still pretty warm and I'm not completely sure that it goes with my skin. It also made my skin look weird in photos so please ignore that. 

Holy Grail applied very easily and was opaque in 2 coats. It dries pretty fast like most a-england polishes. On the ring finger I painted a coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather and then used a golden stud from Born Pretty to finish the look. I really liked the fact that the stud is almost the same type of gold as Holy Grail and it really tied the whole manicure together. 

I really enjoyed this unusual (for me) look and I got a lot of compliments while I wore it. If you haven't already seen the movie you really need to go see it. You won't regret it!
