All That Glitters...

I was going to try and mix some colors for our Spring 2012 collection this weekend, but for whatever reason grabbed Time Traveler and mixed a few different versions. The original Time Traveler is a straight up slate grey creme. This one has gold shimmer mixed with small traces of pink and blue shimmer. LOVE this! It was by request, so how could I resist? Maybe one day we will have some of these different versions in our line.

I never did move on to mixing for the Spring line. Once I had this I had to try it on 4 nails and swatch it. But then sitting on my desk was these cool little vials of gold flakes I picked up on Amazon and I then I remembered seeing  a picture in August's NailPro magazine where someone did a manicure with black polish and a gold design down the middle of the nail. Hmmm... I figured why not just try something out.

 The result was gold flakes going down the middle of my nails. It looks way more amazing in person. It is like going out on a hot date amazing, or girl's night out amazing, or weekend in Vegas amazing... You get the idea. But for me it is going to be going to work all week amazing! I had to finish the manicure and do all my nails. I can't stop staring at my nails. This is friggin amazing! Fall is just days away and it is the perfect mani to welcome Fall.

So what do you think? Are you loving or hating this look?


  1. I loooove this look!
    I'm just going to keep bothering you until one day CultNails will make a bronzed gold ;)
    Also for the spring, maybe a lighter version of china glaze "for Audrey" ... You guys have the best formula for nail polish... I'd love to see that shade in a CultNails bottle ;)

  2. Oh wow, I love this polish so much! The shimmer in this polish looks gorgeous, it's a nice contrast to the slate grey.

  3. The gold flakes are gorgeous against that dark color. Did you order the flakes from a nail art company from amazon? I'd like to get my hands on some of those!

  4. Ooh I love this variation of Time Traveller! LOVE it! I hope it makes it into the line one day!

  5. Idk how it is possible, but even more gorgeous in person!!! LOVE IT!

  6. I love this variation of Time Traveler even more than the original!
