Metallic Manicures For Old Year's Night

Ahhhh Old Year's Night (New Year's Eve for international readers), the main time it's perfectly normal to 'shine bright like a diamond' from head to toe. I'm just talking about fingernails here though.

Metallic polishes aren't my favourites since some show brush strokes very prominently and basically make you look like an amateur. However, they're so gorgeous I can't resist. Check out some of my favourites:

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 'Coin Flip' 

I think this should be a staple in everyone's collection. Cheap and sweet: so sweet I also featured it in a Top Five Fall Polishes that was featured on Dee's blog.

Orly 'Rage'

Y'all gotta be sick hearing about this by now. Liquid rose gold man.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) 'Poison'

I am such a huge fan of dark manicures that I don't even mind the possible brush strokes. This is another great formula from OCC just be careful to wipe the excess polish off the long stem to prevent nail flooding.

Essie 'Sexy Divide' 

Look at this royal purple gorgeousness! This is probably the least metallic of the bunch but the way it shines in the light gives me that same vibe.

Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Scrangie 2.0'

So sad I only got into Rescue Beauty Lounge as it was closing down. Sigh. Check out Scrangie's blog post for full details on her second collaboration with them.

M.A.C 'Shimmerfish' LE

If you have this pull it back out. This one really surprised me with its dimensions: a foil finish with bronze metallic shards throughout, on a cool base.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

Unlike my Influencers post the persons mentioned below are all local and I know them. If that makes me biased then you should take everything I'm about to say with a grain of salt.

Heidi Bowen of Moden Makeup

Let's get the obvious one out of the way shall we 😉 I've said before how much I've learned watching Heidi conduct her Workshops. Since then she has increased her skillset, restructured her modules and truly focused on knowledge sharing. Every participant departs feeling enlightened; emboldened to try something they once thought was daunting. No one leaves empty handed. This kindda thing speaks to me because I've attended many M.A.C classes and saw the value only in the products I was reimbursed. Not to say, the outing isn't a good time - especially if you go with friends - but some settings leave you more intimidated than excited. #TeamModen affiliations aside, I can see how Heidi has grown as a Beauty Educator. And fuh my one part I know any session booked…
