NOTD: Matte Gold Flakie Gradient!

I’ve been wanting to do something with purple and gold, but wasn’t really feeling it… then I scrolled passed a picture on Facebook (can’t find it now but it was a matte royal purple with hand placed gold flakes) and it inspired this!

I love how this came out! Gilty can be a little difficult to work with because all the big flakes tend to get stuck at the bottom of the bottle, so I had to let everything settle in the bottle them fish out some of the bigger pieces so I could get more coverage at the tip of my nail. Also, Every Month is Oktoberfest looks a little flat brown in the picture, it does lean a little more purple-brown in real life.

I really cannot stop looking at my nails, this might be one of my favorite manis! What do you guys think?
