Speckled Gold Eggs
How was your Easter? Mine was pretty much perfect- just my husband and I, a homemade pizza, and old movies on Netflix. We've had a pretty rough year, and as a result have decided to boycott holidays this year. Christmas was a flop, and Easter was too. And that's ok. We have each other, that's all that matters to us.
My favorite Easter candy is definitely Cadbury eggs- both the original cream eggs and the mini's...seriously good stuff. The mini eggs are what gave me the idea for this manicure, speckled eggs. And how do you make a speckled egg more fabulous? Use a gold leaf topcoat for a gold speckled egg!
To achieve this manicure, I used 2 coats of Julep 'Shenae' and 2 coats of OPI 'Man With a Golden Gun.' I don't know if it was just my bottle, but Shenae was goopy and not the usually smooth formula of Julep and I regret breaking the seal.
This manicure didn't last long this weekend, cleaning out closets and painting bathrooms doesn't do much for manicures.
Hope you have a great week!
