NOTD: Summer Gold

Models Own Tropical Sun / Chit Chat: Gold

Orange and gold are two colours I don't embrace all that often, I have to admit soft pastels are much more my thing than brights and neons. But when the sun is shining why not go for something a bit sunny on the nails too, eh? This shade by Model's Own has to be the prettiest orange nail polish I've ever seen, it's not a vibrant or harsh orange and is instead kind of peachy with beautiful gold sheen to it. And with a name like Tropical Sun it's just the thing for a summers day- I might not be soaking up any tropical sun right now but the weather here is pretty amazing lately so I can't complain!

I love how the gold shimmer gives a duochrome finish, not that it needs the extra sparkle but I decided to go with a gold glitter top coat anyway (as far as I'm concerned excessive glitter can never be a bad thing when it comes to nails). The chunky pieces in the gold glitter polish give the nails an almost polka dot appearance, I picked up this beauty by Chit Chat from Poundland and believe it or not it's really good! I have a few of their different glitter shades and love them all, definitely worth a look if you're in the market for a sparkly top coat. The Model's Own polish is almost opaque in one coat although I gave it a second for good measure, and a thin layer of the gold sparkle was all that was needed for a good amount of glittery bits. Tropical Sun is from Model's Own Beetlejuice collection, it's an old one now but there are loads of beautiful shades that are a bit more special than your average glitter polish. This combo might be a bit different to my usual pastel nail choices but I like it a lot, especially for sunny days like today.

What do you have on your nails today?
