Manic(ure) Monday: Golden Birthday Girl

A few weeks ago I got a new nail polish, which I set aside just for my birthday, which is today, yaay!. In fact I didn't want to buy new nail polish any time soon but this one was a special top coat I had been lusting after for a longer time: a gold top coat. The gold leaves looked a bit strange in the bottle, rather greenish, but when I saw them applied on a swatch I knew I need to have the top coat. In store they combined it with a white, shiny nail polish and it looked so cool that I tried to recreate the look:

What I used:

Manhattan fluo club 216
Essence Metal Glam gold topper 01 Steel-ing The Scene

Don't you think the combination looks super fierce and precious? I don't know how the top coat would look with a coloured base but I will probably try that, too. In fact the base I used is fluorescent in UV light which looks so cool (I tried it on holiday years ago) and these kind of nail polishes are super hot again. I think you can get them from Essence.

What are you girls wearing on your nails right now? Do you like to get a special manicure for your birthday, too?


  1. It's your b-day??? Happy birthday, doll! I hope you have a wonderful celebration and get lots of even more wonderful gifts.;) And yes, the combination looks fierce, I love the white pearly polish!!

  2. I totally need a manicure! Will stop at the first salon I'll come across during my holiday. Happy birthday! Your mani is perfect for festive events.

  3. nice and finally a simple manicure...i want to try to make this

  4. Nothing like a nude nail polish and some gold glitter, love!

  5. Oh the gold glitter is perfect - It would look good with any polish underneath, really!
