Excuse the close-up...my fingers are really gross and dry, it being winter and all. But the polish is gorgeous!
On the nail, Smitten with Mittens looks like red glitter in a deep red jelly polish. If you've seen the bottle, you know that the glitter in SwM is actually gold - it's simply hidden by red jelly! I thought the red/gold combo was gorgeous and I wanted to bring it out a little more. I know other ladies have accomplished this by swiping their polish with acetone after it's dry so the top jelly layer is stripped off and you see the colour of the glitter. It works, but I've never liked this method. So instead I added a layer of Essie Golden Nuggets! (The black label one. The newer blue label version has chunkier glitter.) The effect is supremely Christmas-y!
What mani are you rocking for the holidays?
