At least once I month I end up putting together a very questionable pairing of colors that have no business being worn together. I don't know where these things come from... they just happen. This time it started out innocently enough. I wanted to do red nails. I NEVER do red nails. So I whipped out my bottle of Butter London Come To Bed Red. And then I remembered why.
Come to Bed Red is a gorgeous super-glossy candy-apple red with a slight jelly quality to it. Two coats to perfectly opaque but a third gives it a little more depth and intensity. Love love love. But not on me.
Nope. What is it about red nails that makes me so incredibly self-conscious and uncomfortable? Kind of exactly how I feel when I try to wear red lipstick. I'm not afraid of color, or brights, or nails that attract attention, and I think this blog proves that- but I guess I'm not a red-nail person.
So I thought: let me salvage this somehow... perhaps a glitter to distract from all the RED RED RED LOOK AT ME I'M WEARING RED? And why not a gradient, since my last two posts were gradients and I might as well polish off the week with another.
Because nothing goes with screaming bright red like pink, blue and gold glitter. With extra copper glitter on top.
Yup. This blog is living up to it's name today.
