Way back in December when it was my birthday, I received a gift certificate from my awesome girlfriends to Femme Fatale Cosmetics. Femme Fatale stocks a whole bunch of international indie brands for us Aussie gals. I hadn't really bought any indie polishes for the entire year, so it was pretty exciting going through all the available brands choosing polishes just for me that I knew I wanted to wear. The funny thing was that I ended up getting about 6 different gold polishes. I stayed true to my heart that's for sure.
One of those polishes was Cupcake Polish Ornamentary My Dear, which is a platium gold holo with gold glitter and gold flakes. It was my first Cupcake polish, but certainly wasn't my last. Ornamntary My Dear is a little sheer so I ended up doing three coats, over a little layer of latex barrier to create the half moon. The rest of the mani just sort of happened. I had this great little set of gold metallic ocean themed decorations that were small enough to fit into the half moon area. The half moon line was done with Lacquistry Amazeballz extra fine.
I really loved the little metallic decorations. I received them from Lady Queen nail art store and they were much nicer than I was expecting. Rather than just being metallic printed stickers, you actually peel these off from between two protective layers of clear plastic and each design is a fine cut and embossed thin metal charm. Because they are so thin, you can actually bend them a little to ensure they follow the curve of your nails. I gently rolled mine around a nail art brush before applying them to my nail. I finished them off with a nice layer of top coat to keep them flat and smooth. The sheet has 50 charms, so I still have heaps left over in other designs too.
