Nail Art: Mothers Are Precious Like Gold

Nanay (a Filipino term for mother) asked me to polish her nails last night and surprisingly requested a nail art! I guess being a nail art enthusiast can be contagious ... in a way. I got excited so I immediately went to check my stash for possible colors that she might like. She wanted something nude, or a shade that isn't too loud. I, on the other hand, wanted to give her a glittery golden polish. I won! I must say that it really looked good on her.

Here's the result:

Gold nails for my Nanay.

The photo is not doing the polish justice. We were having trouble with the lighting. I used 3 coats of Elianto Glitter Bronze to achieve the opacity that I wanted. Strange that the name of this polish says it's bronze when it actually gives a golden shade. Don't you just love the glitter on this one?

Simple and classy nail art.

I first thought that a white design might not show up with all the glitter in this nail polish. I suggested to stamp my mother's chosen design in black. I'm glad I listened to her and used Konad white special polish instead because this didn't overpower the golden polish.

A closer look at the nail art and polish:

If I wasn't on a Halloween nail art project this month, I'll definitely put this polish on right now!

I'm looking forward to more nail art sessions with Nanay!
