Fuschia and Glitter Polka Dot Mani.

Looks like confetti!

I’m a big fan of The Glitter Guide’s 5 Things To Try This Weekend. So naturally when I saw their glitter polka dot manicure I had to get on board. I used fuchsia nail paint by Barry M., multi colored glitter from the craft store, my Gelous Nail Gel topcoat, and a large black tea latte to create my look. The final verdict: I LOVE! I did the same effect with my toes with my fluorescent orange nail color from Cynthia Rowley (find pics on my instagram: goldenbonbons).

Just some polish, glitter, and patience.

Beauty Review: Chanel Coromandel Lipstick and Nail Colour.

My favorite red.

My favorite red.

It’s not often we stumble upon that perfect red lip and nail. I found mine at the Chanel counter while my husband and I were in Vegas . Now I have been rocking a red lip and red nail all summer (read more about my summer beauty favorites here). Never being a red lip/red nail kind of girl, I would have never picked these 2 beauty pieces if the boldness of Vegas hadn’t overcome me by the time I reached the beauty department. My natural skin tone is a beige with neutral to gold undertones so this is the perfect red for warmer skin. Here are some beauty swatches in natural light…
