TLDoS#13 Inspired by Something in your House

I cheated a little bit for this one. I looked around my house and all I could really find was the couch with a complicated repetitive pattern (in colours I don't own) and the zebra print pillows in the TV room. So I looked around my room and my eyes settled on something else.

A pair of tiny gold earrings that Branden got me a couple Christmases ago =)
I keep losing the backing since it's a little bit of plastic on a very thin post. I need to find more before I can wear them without worrying about them all the time. These have a LOT of sentimental value though, and I'm glad I can pay tribute to them =)

Clearly I started with China Glaze Dress Me Up and then I picked up the only metallic gold I have, Golden Rose 335.

As you can see, it unfortunately matched too closely with the underwear, and didn't show up. I needed something more yellow, leading me to Julep Nessa.

MUCH better

In the sun <3

So there you have it =) This is much more subtle than I usually have but I really like it. I think next time I'll be another colour underneath so it stands out more but other than that I think this turned out all right.

My one regret is that my item isn't as interesting as everyone else's...

  1. Your item is special because it's sentimental. I think it's sweet that you copied the design on your nails. It makes a very pretty mani too. I've seen someone use an antique barrette before for one of these posts, so don't sweat it. ;)

    1. Aww thanks <3 Yeah, it can't always be a complicated design, right? =P
