Metal Flake Nails

I'll start by saying that this was not the mani I had in mind, but, thankfully it still turned out ok. I thought it would be such a great idea to apply nail polish using a toothbrush for a different effect. I assumed I'd get a pattern made up of tiny dots. Nope.

 OPI "Passion", Ulta3 gold polish, LA Colors "Live" and Essie "Pure Pearlfection".

I thought a natural colour would be a good choice to apply gold and silver over. Using an old toothbrush, I dabbed both gold and silver on my nails. It seemed to give a gold leaf kind of effect to these metallic shades. I then applied Essie "Pure Pearlfection" to tie both shades together.

In future, I think I will stick to using my old toothbrushes as little scrubbing brushes for cleaning the bathroom, lol.


  1. Doh! I think my comment didnt save! It was 'this is so pretty!' Such a clever idea!! I love mixed metals!!
