For my accent nail I decided to reverse the greens and then opted to cover the whole nail with the gold top coat instead of letting it peek out from the stripped areas. The contrast between Thanks a Windmillion and Going Incognito is so gorgeous that I can barely stand it. With the gold accents, it just went to a whole 'nuther level. I had initially been bummed that I didn't pick up the OPI James Bond gold top coat, but I feel like this has more than filled the void.
I took these pictures over the weekend, and I look forward to wearing this manicure for at least a few days more. Believe me, that's saying something! I am not the kind of girl to wear one manicure for more than a day or two. Between dings and boredom, one day's polish is taken off and replaced for another's. Not this time! Tell me, have you been enjoying striping tape lately? I know that I'm late to the party, so if anyone has a tip or suggestion on how to use it, I would be thrilled to hear about it! Also, what do you think about the real gold flake nail trend? It feels like everyone is putting one out these days. I'm loving them personally, but I'm only interested in polishes that don't break the bank. How much is too much to adorn your nails with gold?
