Mixed Metals Mani

August 2, 2012 by Trina 4 Comments

My Julep August add-ons came Monday and I couldn’t wait to show y’all.  I was hoping my American Beauty box would come before today because I originally wanted to do gold, silver, and bronze for an Olympic theme.  Instead I have a mixed metals mani for you {and there’s no tape involved, ha!}.

This month in addition to my American Beauty box, I also picked up Sienna, Isla and Harley.  I’ve wanted Sienna since I saw it in person back in December when my mom gave it to my brother’s girlfriend, Jody, for Christmas.  Now it’s all mine :)

On my left hand I painted my pointer and thumb nails gold {Sienna} and middle and pinky nails silver {Harley}.  I did the opposite on the right hand.  On both hands the ring finger is painted metallic white {Isla} with alternating dots down the center in gold and silver.  I used a dotting tool for the dots, or you can try a toothpick, pinhead, or other pointed object.  I love my dotting tools because each one gives me different size dots.

I love to wear gold and silver jewelry together so this was right up my alley.  For another great mixed metals mani, check out my friend Jenn’s here.

What do you think? Do you like the mixed metals look?
