I wanted to transform this rainy day. Without the sun brightening the sky, I chose gold for my fingertips to adorn myself with a color akin to light. This metallic with gold glitter sprinkles is a mini from the Borghese Allegra kit. It seems like a color that Goldilocks from the storybook would wear. Then, quite fancifully, I was imagining Goldilocks could turn objects as gilded as her hair by simply imagining it so. Perhaps that is what happened to the ginkgo tree I captured last week.
The Borghese gold mini polish applied similarly to the red I wore yesterday. I painted three thin coats with the smaller than average brush. Fear not! The brush is not as maddeningly small as an OPI mini. It does the job. Formula wise, I think this gold glitter would have been a two coater with a standard Borghese brush. I do wish this polish were available full size. The texture of the gold glitter felt fairly smooth after one layer of CND Air Dry topcoat. The glitter pieces are the right size to be prominent on the nail, yet still avoid bumpiness. Perfect!
Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate and happy painting to each of you!
