Plum Gold PWIs

Have you noticed the longest posts are ones where I whine about having nothing to say?  I’m going to try to back off on that.  Not that I feel like whining today: it’ll be a while before the high wears off.  A long while.

News from last night’s celebratory/goodbye dinner: brioche donuts are amazing and should probably be illegal for the public good.  (Or, at least, my good.)

This is two colors from Sinful Colors’ current limited-edition releases, which I guess are for fall?  Both have been in LEs before, so I may actually have one of them somewhere.  In a box.

Sinful Colors 24 Karat:

Gold!..ish yellow.  With plenty of visible nail tip.  You can see clearly how nubby my nails are without the free edge; comes of chopping them down so violently all the time (or so I’ve heard, maybe it’s actually genetic).

This is a very pretty, IMO very classy, very sheer yellow gold.  This is… maybe 4-5 coats?  Too many, and you can still see the nail, which for this color is fine with me.  I like it this way, but it’s clearly meant to add a gold sheen over something else.  However, I went the opposite direction, adding French tips with…

Sinful Colors Fig:

With bonus fig-colored cuticles!  This is probably the longest my nails have been in years, because I’ve been writing instead of robot-ing for the last couple of months.  Poor robots.

This was made possible with nail art brushes (Thank you, Mama T!!).  I still got Fig all over myself, but I’m getting there.

I really like this, you guys!  I like both colors and the combo, I like the French tips, I don’t even particularly want to frantically hack off my weirdly-long nails yet.  Neat!
