Twin post: Jewel Nails

Hey! :D 

Today I will show you a mani, I never thought I'd try :P You may now the designs where the nail is kinda like framed by another color?
A few days ago I saw that Ivana posted this picture on twitter and said that it stole her heart, and that she would love round nails right now to do this mani. Since Sophie and I have round nails we were inspired and decided to do a twin post today with this manicure! 

First I thought I'd do the exact same color combination as in the pic, but I chose a gold-blue combo instead :) 
I used: Catrice - Goldfinger and Chicogo - Fuel. The next thing I had to think about, was whether I paint on the gold polish and with a little brush add the inner color or whether I use a small brush to frame the blue color. I tried both and the first option went better for me. Whew, hard to explain this :)) 
Now I have to say that I'm not sure if I like it or not! At first I loved it!! After starring at it for a few minutes I wasn't sure anymore...then the sun came out and it looked gorgeous, after the sun was gone I didn't like it anymore ... and so on .. 
So please be honest and tell me: do you like it? 
Would you wear this or have you already tried it? :)
Sunlight Pic!! :D I love this blue so much, it really looks like jewels! :)  
Make sure to go over to Sophie's blog and check out her interpretation of this mani!! It's a green-gold version and it looks gorgeous ;) 

Have a nice day and see ya tomorrow with a little franken of mine ;)

  5. Your lines are incredible! I think this look is really cool. I think the gold is so similar to your skin tone that it sort of fades away. Maybe a darker color would make it stand out more? Still, its an awesome mani!

  7. I love goldfinger. I bought it not so long back just because it's being discontinued. Such a perfect gold!
    I like the manicure. I would probably mattify it though. But that's my own preference :)

  9. I like it but maybe it would look even better if the color around your nail wasn't at all similar to your skin color? Like if you switched up the colors and had a blue line around instead.

  11. Great idea. You did a really lovely job - bloody difficult I expect:). It looks like they used a matt grey/blue on the original mani?

  14. I saw this same design with different colors, and I was like 'nope, never gonna work for me, not cute at all'. But yours are gorgeous! I love the color choice, the framing doesn't look so stark. Very nice!
