Hi everyone, welcome to Monday. Let's all hope for a good week. I didn't get around to doing an Olympics mani until yesterday, which was the very last day of the Olympics. I really enjoy watching the Olympics and I'm sad to see them go. The last two Olympics especially, my husband and I have been really into watching ever single night. This year we were really into bobsled, luge, and skeleton, downhill skiing, speed skating, and ski and snowboard cross. Today I am wrapping up the Olympics with a gold, silver, and bronze mani.
Also, our town is buzzing this morning because there was a tweet by Ellen Degeneres yesterday saying that she had a big surprise for the University of Illinois, which is where I'm located and is also my alma mater. No one knows what is planned but she just gave a time and location today. I'm a huge fan of Ellen and my husband is trying to convince me to play hookey haha!
So today I have a mani that incorporates gold, silver, and bronze, all in a suede/satin finish. I included so many of the same swatch photos below because I wanted to include all three bottles of polish :)
I first started with a base of OPI You Don't Know Jacques Suede, which has a bronzy feel to it. I taped off a diagonal and layered on OPI This Gown Needs a crown, and finished off with OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby. For my accent nail, I used the same base and added one coat of Julep Paris, which is a gold, silver, and rose gold glitter topper. To finish, I used a layer of OPI Matte topcoat on everything.
Have a great day everyone!
