The Crumpets 31 Day Challenge Gold with China Glaze Champagne Kisses

Hello everyone!
Today is day three of The Crumpets 31 Day Challenge and the theme is GOLD!. I have the same feelings about gold as I do about silver, way too much shine to be worn alone. Alone this polish looks very simple, a lot of bling, but simple. I added simple flowers to balance out this intense color. 

Pin It
 I started with two coats of China Glaze Champagne kisses. Without a top coat this polish is gritty and has a lot of sparkle but no gloss. to build a gloss I added two coats of Seche Vite ( the first coat was absorbed) Using a dotting tool I made flowers using China Glaze liquid leather and Italian red.
This is such a vibrant gold and the only way to show you how much is glistens was to take the pictures in natural light. It is absolutely beautiful.
As you can see I made black flowers followed by by smaller flowers made with Champagne Kisses. I finished with China Glaze Italian red in the middle. 

The flowers were great and the gold still pops. All together it was a good balance. Would you wear this color on its own?
Please Check out the other creations.


  1. I would totally wear this polish alone, but then I love my glitters! This looks gorgeous, love the little flowers x

  2. Champagne Kisses isn't a bad gold. I am not a big fan of gold but this one isn't too yellow so I actually don't mind it. Your pretty flowers are making me miss the warmer weather :)
