Thrills in the Beverly Hills Wagon Train

I think I’ll be re-working that Opulent Cloud franken from yesterday as it seems it was pretty far off the original color, but for now I’ve got a fun shade that I like a lot. It’s a layer franken- no mixing involved!

First layer: China Glaze Wagon Trail.  It looks black in my crummy photo but it is a magical, deep khaki color. My indoor night photos definitely don’t do it justice.

Then, a layer of OPI Thrills In Beverly Hills copper glitter topcoat. I was afraid it would look too Halloweeny but I kind of like it! It reminds me of  leaves falling on a deep pond.

Then, a coat of Essie’s Matte About You.

I didn’t buy any of the nail polishes from the recent MAC Style Black collection, and I was thinking of buying Seriously Hip (it was sold out, and I just didn’t like the name for some reason), but I think this franken satisfied me for now.

    I like your version. Looks great shiny or matte. I don’t have the OPI but at least I could manage this one easily.

    how do you get the cuticle line so clean and sharp when applying nail polish?

    • nevertoomuchglitter says:

      Hi there!
      Make sure your cuticles are moisturized regularly- this makes removing any polish that sticks to them much easier and also prevents staining when you take off the polish. Before I apply a dark color, I put on cuticle oil or handcream around the cuticles (but not touching the nail!) using a small brush. Then polish and wipe off your cuticles! If any polish remains on your cuticle, use a Q-tip in acetone polish remover to take it off.
