A while ago, I did a post bout a manicure I had tried and became completely obsessed with. I kept staring at my hands and repeating in my head how pretty it looked. In case you missed it, you can see it Here and tell me if I'm wrong about how pretty they are.
Well, it isn't something too complicated and it got me thinking what other color could work with gold.
I find silver glitter doesn't really do such a great job as gold in delivering something really pretty.
So upon being flooded with Fashion Week material and trends, the term Oxblood was floating around pretty much everywhere I looked. Sounds pretty macabre doesn't it, "Oxblood" ? I'd assume even Bunnyblood would have worked, since it's pretty much the same color, but it wouldn't have had the same street cred that Oxblood brings with it.
In any case, since this is clearly becoming Nail Week on the blog, I will continue this week with showing you Bunnyblood glitter nails.No, just kidding, it's still Oxblood and no bunnies were harmed...just some cows.
I think these go from pretty to quite chic . Much of the baroque era operated on black or burgundy and gold.
I only had this particular shade of burgundy at my disposal at that particular point, but went out and got a lighter and more shimmery shade a few days later and I'm thinking about repeating this manicure with that.
In any case, I am really liking this combination. It will probably work amazingly well with black too if you want to give it a bit of a gothic twist or you can try some mint greens or sky blues if you're feeling fresh.
The blues and greens might be a clearer option in spring, but why not brighten up the day a bit now already?
Also, white will probably look gorgeously pure.
Ok, this just makes me want to try a whole bunch of new combination now. What have I done!
Back to painting my nails it is then!
