Happy Friday! This has been a long week for me! I am so happy it is weekend. Do you have any plans?
I had such a cool idea for stripes today but once again, my eyes were bigger than my ability. I just struggle to work with a brush. Instead I am going to blow you away with originality….not. But I will show you a beautiful polish. So let’s get to it.
I started off with 2 coats of Revlon – Gold rush and left that to dry completely. Once dry, I used striping tape to criss-cross the lines across my nails. I then applied Revlon – Fascinate and removed the tape immediately. I had a bit of issues here because for the life of me I just couldn’t get the order right of the tape. I had this whole system worked out when applying the tape but when I had to remove it it all fell to pieces. It was quite a strange thing and I was really annoying myself. This is also a prompt I spent forever on. *grumble grumble*
Anyway, can we just take a moment to talk about this gorgeous polish? Let me show you the polishes I used and tell you what I think.
Revlon – Gold rush
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It’s a white toned gold foil. I really like this shade of gold and this one is great. Great formula and great opacity.
Revlon – Fascinate
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a really good formula. It’s a little lighter and sheer on the first coat but builds up beautifully on the second. I don’t even know what this polish would fall under. It’s got the blue to purple duochrome shift and this gorgeous shimmer in it. You can see it looks a little more purple on the gold and a bit more blue on it’s own. It is SO gorgeous.
What do you think? Did my creativity and originality blow you away? 😛 I am just kidding. I do like it, I just wish my original idea worked out. Isn’t that polish beautiful?

Fascinate is stunning, totally my kind of purple. I love how you paired it with the shimmery gold!

Both polishes are pretty AND your mani is pretty too! Perfect colour combo
What a great colour combination! It’s a classic look for a reason.
I have Revlon’s Gold Rush too and I love it, such a pretty polish and so easy to use.

Striping tape can get really annoying really fast, haha. Reading the comments about the color combo reminded me that these were my high school colors, heh heh.
Fascinate is beautiful!! Love your design
