I am in unadulterated lust with this gold-shouldered Jenny Packham gown, and decided to take inspiration from it for my current two-tone glitter paint job.
Capturing the true beauty of this manicure on camera has pretty much proved impossible, and this strangely angled photo was as close to a good shot as I could get. You'll have to take my word for it: it is TOTES AMAZE in person. The sprinkling of gold glitter that make up the gradient tips sparkle beautifully against a backdrop of sophisticated gunmetal grey bling.
It's Christmassy without being vulgar, and I dare even the most ardent glitter hater to tell me this combination doesn't look good. (I won't be offended, but I can't speak for Jenny.)
