Beauty | Manicure Monday: Matte camouflage nails

It seems the more mainstream and commonplace nail art is becoming, the more I’m drawn to simpler nail designs and treatments. This Manicure Monday I decided to go for a simple camo print accent nail with gold studs and my favourite nude nail polish.

I own over 140 nail polishes and yet I do not own a single, solitary olive green polish. I was set on rocking camo nails so I improvised a bit and swapped the olive green polish for oxblood and gold ones. The gold polish is from O.P.I.’s new Skyfall collection and I’m in love. I’ve been looking for a true gold glitter nail polish that offers full coverage and I’ve finally found it.

Patience is a virtue I don’t possess. Smudged the polish when I applied the top coat to a not-yet-dry nail.

For this manicure I used Essence Colour & Go Quick Drying Nail Polish in Nude It!, Maybelline New York Color Show Nail Lacquer in Dressed to Kill, Rimmel London Lasting Pro in Black Satin and O.P.I. Nail Lacquer in Goldeneye with Essie Matte About You matte top coat.
