NOTD: LA Splash Terra Beach

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It's Monday again, how's everyone? Squirt and I stayed in all day yesterday, could have gone out to get a few things but it was gloomy and windy.

This is an overdue NOTD as I wore it on New Year's Eve going out for a drink with the bf. Better late than never huh?

The base colour is LA Splash Terra Beach, one of the colours the bf got for me from Ulta. Lawtons does carry LA Splash but the nail polish selection and price can't compete with Ulta.

The name suits the colour pretty well, as it is a peachy terracotta shade, a step up from regular pinky nude. Similar to my lips, my nails don't look good with nude colours. They need some pigmentation to show off, lol.

The reason I went for LA Splash Terra Beach was actually the glitters that I was putting on top of it: Milani Gems.

I probably don't need to explain much about how highly sought after this colour is. When I finally got it in my hands, I wanted to wear it right away. Kinda hate removing full glittery nails afterward, so I only used Gems as a glittery top coat. Terra Beach was subtle enough not to interfere with the multi-coloured glitters in Gems.

Feel free to click to enlarge the pic for full glittery effect. Do you like how the glitters look on top?

This is a non-flash shot to show you how the mani looked most of the time. I love how it turned out, a little toned down but still exciting enough :) Gems is truly a unique combo of glitters, at least to me, dupe of something famous or not.

A nontraditional choice of colours, I know, for a festive occasion, but I didn't really want to wear red and green or all blinged-out glitters. It was just the bf and I going out that night, none of our friends were around, so I think it was appropriate. He liked the idea of me wearing the colours he got for me :)

Looks like we are having the sun today, at least for now. My sunglasses sure love it :) Have a great day!
