Festive Fingernails!

It's getting into the season of holiday parties and that means adding a little sparkle to your nails and makeup! I love this nail polish combo as we round out Fall and move into Winter!
OPI Over the Taupe and The Living Daylights (from the Skyfall Collection)
  I used two coats of Over the Taupe as a nice neutral base for The Living Daylights and only used that about 3/4 of the way down the nail. Then I topped it all off with a good coat of Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri topcoat. The glitter particles in The Living Daylights are very large and flaky and can feel a little bit scratchy on the surface, so using a good, shiny topcoat over those is a must!

 The glitters make this an extremely long wearing trio! I'm pretty sure I had this combo on for about 10 days, so you can definitely get a good wear out of these and the color combo makes it easy to match with most of your fall/winter wardrobe! I think the glitter coat would also look great on a variety of other base coats like a rich creamy red, a dark teal, or even black! It's the perfect thing to give your nails a little burst of festivity!
Happy December!
