China Glaze Phat Santa & Milani Jewel FX Gold

Hi dear readers :)
Today i’d like to show you a manicure I made some weeks ago. I just got Milani Jewel FX in Gold that day and couldn’t wait to try it, but I didn’t want to use it as a full manicure… I think I was too lazy for the removal of all those glitters lol :)
Red and gold is a combo that usually works, so I too an untried polish from my stash: China Glaze Phat Santa from Xmas 2010 LE.
Phat Santa is a gorgeous deep red creme, a very sexy shade, but it was a bit sheer and I used 3 coats for a good coverage. That’s not in my habits, I rarely use more than two coats, but this one is so pretty despite of that little flaw…
I used Milani Jewel FX Gold as an accent on my ring finger. Here’s the result, soooo blingy ! I loved it :)
I had some tip wear on the second day, because of a top coat that I should throw in the trashcan … I’m sorry to say that, but Catrice bases and top coats don’t work at all for me. Their polish and colours are really great for such a price, I’ll just don’t use their nail care range again … (except the whitening base which works great but dries fast in the bottle)
So, to hide those awful white tips (I know they are not that bad, but with such a red I really don’t like it), I applied some glitters from Milani Gold, like if it had been sponged. I didn’t use a sponge, I just tapped the brush to place glitters randomly on my tips. Fast and easy to create :)

I liked how it turned. Now I’ve tried Milani Gold, I totally need the silver one :p
What do you think ? Do you like that kind of polish or is it too much bling for you ?
If you want to know what it looks like as a full manicure and don’t want to wait for a swatch from me, check Scrangie’s blog to see her great pics and also what it looks like topped on a purple polish. So yummy !
Have a nice day :)
