Gold Confetti Nails!

Hi everyone! We've made it to Friday! And since I don't have any confetti to throw in the air to celebrate, I'm painting it on my nails! I actually did this a few days ago... after my Wet n Wild limited edition Color Icon polish in 24 Carats lasted a whopping 2 days. That was the polish I had on in my last couple of videos. Due to the premature chipping- I felt the need to polish my nails AGAIN with sparkly gold. And this look is more unique and more long-wearing.

Took this pic of my nails during a commercial break during our morning newscast this week. Just in case you were wondering how I stay entertained during those moments :) It's basically a neutral base coat with a chunky glitter on top. I feel it's prettier in person, and much more reflective than the picture shows.

  • I applied 2 coats of Essence Colour & Go nail polish in Irreplaceable. This polish is like a light taupe/beige with gold-toned sparkle... but the glitter in it is pretty subtle.
  • Then topped it with one coat of Milani Jewel FX polish in Gold. Since the glitter pieces are so large, it can be a little tricky to apply, and you might have to spend a little extra time spreading the pieces out on your nail so they don't end up in a clump. I'm not much of a nail genius & it was still pretty easy. Yay!
  • Finished it off with a coat of Milani Glosse Top Coat... this one is just slightly thicker than some other top coats I have, so I feel like it makes rough, glittery textures more smooth- and therefore, less prone to chips.

Daily Nuggets...
  • I was in the beauty section of Target this evening (shocker!) and ran into a loyal Beauty Broadcast & News 3 This Morning viewer! She was beautiful and so nice!! Totally made my day.
  • Hot finds at Target: Label maker (Tyler) and mini kabuki Ecotools brush set (me!) You can bet you'll be seeing those in a blog sometime soon! oh, and while at Target I randomly get a call from mom saying she can't find Boots No. 7 skincare in her Target. Mine had one set left of what she needed. Problem solved!
  • Did some major napping this afternoon.


  1. Oh I'm the first one commenting here~ haha Always wondered how you manage to get up at 3am and still look gorgeous.

  2. Boots No.7 must be some good stuff. It is always sold out at my Target. Never tried it but have heard of it and thought I might try it a few times but it is always sold out.

  3. You'll have to do a video about Kabuki Set from EcoTools!! I've been looking for them! :)

  4. Emily, do you know what Boots products your mom uses - I'm in search of skincare and makeup for more "mature" skin and would so appreciate recommendations. Thanks for all you do! Jenny C.

  5. This is so cute! Now im going to do my nails! thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Yay! I love nail posts on your blog!

  7. Love this...Very festive!! xx

  8. Very cute! I would love to see an Ecotools review though. I see them all the time and think about getting them; but just never have.

  9. your nails look GREAT! definitely going out and getting some confetti nail polish!

  10. Love them! i have done my nails with a nude and a multi colored glitter on top and it's super cute :)

  11. OOOhh a glitter topcoat solves everything. Silver sparkles over minty green is my personal go to.

  12. I saw the eco tools kabuki set and I just HAD to get it! I'm so in love with it! Can't wait for your post! :)

  13. I absolutely love glitter polishes but they are sooo hard to get off of your nails afterwards! =(

  15. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
