Gold Dipped in MORE Gold - Orly Glitz

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday... are you ready for more gold? I know this isn' so much "in the spirit" of the holidays, but I'm just not there yet. Don't worry though, you'll get to see my first holiday themed manicure of the season tomorrow. For today however, you get more goooooooold. I can't help but say it like that, thank you very much Mr. Austin Powers.

Today's manicure is really just an extension of my finals week "Luxe for Luck" manicure with Illamasqua Cameo topped with SOPI Its Real! 18K Gold Top Coat. While I was digging through my Helmer to find polishes for my upcoming blog sale addition I found Orly Glitz, a polish I was deceived into purchasing. I don't recall when or where I bought it from, but I remember I ordered it thinking it was actually Orly Glitz & Glamour because that's how it was listed. Its obviously not what I ordered but its pretty nonetheless. I don't wear gold polish that often because it can clash with my paleness, but I noticed Glitz happened to be the same shade of gold as the gold flakes in my SOPI top coat. Match made in heaven!

Woah, lots of pictures! As you can see I sponged Orly Glitz on the tips of my nails, covering the tipwear this week old mani started showing quite well. I'm happy with the way the gradient came out since sometimes its hard to blend out a foil over a dry mani. In retrospect it occured to me that stamping a gradient with this color would have worked just as well.

So what do you think of my tips dipped in gold? Is this something you could see yourself in or is it too bold? I can't believe how bright Glitz is, fiery almost. Its like burnished gold. After finally wearing this color I can safely say it won't be going in my upcoming purge, I like it too much!

PS. I'm having trouble trying to figure out what mani to wear for my graduation ceremony. I haven't quite figured out what I'll be wearing either, but do know it will involve black pants and some gorgeous black suede pumps. My school colors are Scarlet and Grey, any suggestions??
