On my first nail shopping trip (remember that time I spent 120 perfectly good dollars on a new load of nail supplies?), I bought both a gold and bronze color, to attempt recently pinned Mixed Metals from TheBeautyDepartment.
TBD uses two shades of gold, but I wanted a little more clash in my colors, so I upped the ante.
Overall? I wasn’t really pleased. I’ve learned a bit from my previous nail attempts, so there weren’t as many problems with the design. It just came out overly bronze… and it turns out I don’t really love this shade. An additional problem was that the gold went on really thinly, and you could hardly see it!
What have I learned?
- Put the nail shade you like most on as the base coat.
- Use your 18-55mm kit lens for nail shots.
