For the bold of heart

Today's nail of the day is an interesting one, and I have a feeling that it is not for everyone! I got some new polish lately and decided to make a unique combo with them.


So as you can see, I went with a double accent nail of Orly Frolic with Milani Gems Gold on top of them. The other fingers are sporting China Glaze Agent Lavender. The double accent isn't too strange on its own, but the contrast of the big gold glitter with the flawless creme finish of my non-accent nails does make it look a little more bold and unique.


I really am enjoying this mani, despite its mismatched quality and strange juxtaposition. Orly Frolic and China Glaze Agent Lavender, my new colors, are really gorgeous and I had no troubles with application. I used two coats for both colors and they went on smooth.

I also tried out Poshe topcoat with this mani. Someone on my last post suggested that the combination of SV (which has toulene) reacting with that particular polish could have caused the shrinkage, and that Poshe can sometimes work where SV won't. Luckily for me, I already had Poshe and had been meaning to try it out anyway. It was very quick drying, but this mani wasn't a good measuring stick for that because the polishes I used are pretty fast drying already. The shine with Poshe is great and it feels very durable. The fact that it's 3-Free is just a great bonus!

So, about this NOTD: are you guys a fan? Do you prefer single accent nails or double?

  1. I am a huge fan of this! And, I also was nicely surprised with Poshe. I need to get some more because I used up my whole bottle.

  2. I think I prefer the one accent nail.. but on different fingers on each hand. I always do an accent on my left ring finger, and on my right index. Personal preference though.. I see absolutely nothing wrong with your mani, it's quite gorgeous :)

    Also.. cute friggin blog!

  5. I am a fan of the single accent nail-but it has to go together-I'm not sure these two colors are meant to go together.

  9. I like it! Is Agent Lavender really that blue-toned?

    I think that's the only thing I'd change.. is use two polishes that were more similarly hued. But other than that.. it's bold and perfect! Great job as always!

    Question: How is the application of Milani Gems Gold? I want the silver version, but don't want to struggle trying to move the glitter around on my nail so that it's semi-even.

  10. I like it! I guess the blue and the purple are pretty similar colors, but those gems really gave it a nice twist! I like to combine purple and green, it can turn out both hella ugly and pretty fine!

  14. I'm really loving this mani. It's so cute! In the past, I have only done a one-finger accent, but last night, thought about doing a two-finger. Since seeing yours today, I know I'm gonna give it a try. I'm forever game for trying new things and ways of being :)
