Mani Mondays! Introduction



Good morning, friends! It's Monday! That usually means it's the start of a new work, or school, week. No one really likes Mondays, but i've got a new project that I think will have me liking Mondays a lot more! Introducing Mani Mondays! It's a new series here on my blog, where I will show you a new manicure every Monday. And I'm not alone. This is a group effort! This is an idea by an awesome fellow nail polish addict, Lindsay, over at Always a Girly Girl!She thought it would be fun if fellow nail polish lovers would get together and each post a new manicure each week (on Mondays, obviously!), and I couldn't agree more. Since this is the first Mani Monday, it was decided that the mani could be whatever we wanted, but later on we'll have themes! How fun, huh?

So, without furthur ado, let me share my Monday Mani with you.

I have had a yen for Fall and winter lately, so that I can paint my nails a dark, vampy color. And then it occurred to me, I don't have to wait until Fall to pull out my fave vampy polish! True, bright colors are much more widely acceptable in the summer months, but, I've never been one to follow trends or rules, so I went digging through my collection of dusty fall polishes and pulled out this beauty!


This is NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel in the color Plaza Plumberry. I think that The New York Color nailpolishes are vastly underrated in the nail polish community. I rarely ever hear about them, but they are amazing! Most of the ones that I have tried have applied like a dream, they have an amazing color range, and the best part is, you can get these Long Wearing polishes for under a dollar at walmart! While they're called Long Wearing, I don't think they are particularly long lasting. Generally I get about 3 days of wear before it starts to chip, but for someone like me, who loves to constantly change my mani, that's perfect! Plaza Plumberry is a rich, vampy deep plum shade. It looks almost black on the nails from far away, but close up it's this super deep rich purple that reminds me of a rich wine. I love it!

I decided to do some accent nails in a brighter color to make this mani a tad bit more summer appropriate! I chose my favorite gold Metallic Shade.

Revlon's Nail Polish in Gold Coin is easily one of my top 10 nail polishes of all time. It's a gorgeous gold metallic shade that doesn't lean too yellow gold. It's just so classic and goes with everything.

And for an extra something, I decided to add a gold glitter on top of my gold accent nails for just a bit more fun!

This is an Elf mini polish I got in a set back lat winter. It's the color Gold Star. I love pairing this over top of Revlon's Gold coin. Something about chunky glitter in a coordinating shade on top of a metallic polish just does it for me. Love this combo. And with Plaza Plumberry, this is one of my favorite manicures I have done of late! Dark polishes are a bit harder to work with and hide your mistakes, so you can see some nail polish flubs in the photos (painted cuticles, etc) because I am in no way a manicure expert. But I love the finished look, don't you?



So, there ya have it! I hope you enjoyed this Mani Monday! Don't worry I will still be doing random nail of the day posts in between these mani monday posts, but be sure to check back every monday for a new mani with a new theme! Next Monday's theme is going to be "Accent Nail" and I can't wait to share with you what polish I choose to showcase next! As always, thanks for stopping by!!
