The rose gold glittery manicure

Rose gold nails are something I've been after for quite some time. There is an abundance of gold polishes out there on the market, but rose gold surprisingly is not that readily available.  Anything that looks remotely rose gold-ish often turns out to be much more of a pink than anything else.  But, I have found a solution.  And perhaps most surprising is that I found this in Tesco.  And for under £5.

I started with a coat of OPI Nail Envy.  I love this stuff.  It's made my nails so much stronger and stopped them peeling and flaking.  Removing glitter nail varnish is a b****, so applying a base coat should (in theory) help ease this problem a little.  Next up I used Nails Inc Caramel which was one of their Diet Coke releases.  I was actually desperate to try this glitter and put it over a nude grey at first which also looked great, but I figured something more similar in tone would help to really achieve that rose gold look.  Next I applied 2 coats of the pièce de résistance...Molten Copper by Accessorize.  This is a really glittery polish that applies pretty much as glittery as it looks in the bottle.  Not like the ones you get that turn out to be 10% glitter, 90% clear polish.  As glitter polish has a tendancy to feel quite gritty, I finished with another coat of Nail Envy just to smooth down any rough edges.

And there we have it!  I have another rose gold nail varnish on its way to me in the post, but I'm liking this glittery alternative.  What do you think?
