I've always seen a range of gold polishes available in stores, but I never knew anyone who actually wore them. However, in the past two episodes of The Hills, I've spied pale gold digits on Heidi Montag. They match her newly lightened hair well and since we know that metallics aren't going anywhere, it's only natural that this gilded trend has trickled down to the fingertips. Here are a couple of wearable gold polishes to help liven up your holiday look!
MAC Gold Veneer Nail Lacquer ($10) is part of their Holiday Antiquitease Collection. It is a frosty gold, almost tarnished yellow shade that contains UV protection as well as new technology to make it extra extra glossy. One coat adds a nice pale touch to your fingers, while two coats is darker and a little bit more dramatic.
For one more gorgeous gold nail polish,
OPI 18k Ginza Gold Nail Polish ($6) is a glittering slightly deeper gold that also contains a bit of an orangey hue. This light-catching color sparkles like the moon and is part of the very popular Japanese Collection. Would you dare to wear gold nail lacquer?
