Fresh Paint Olive You

Hello Hello! I have another non traditional summer color for you today. My lovely mother-in-law just visited and she wanted her nails painted her favorite color of mine...Fresh Paint Olive You. So of course I obliged. I wanted to get away from all the neon pinks and oranges that you see on all the blogs right now since summer is in full swing, so I decided to show you a fresh way to spruce this polish up.

Fresh Paint- Olive You & Sally Girl-Gold Glitter

I have this poster in my office/nail polish room and love love love it! It's soo beautiful and inspiring in person. So this was essentially my inspiration for this spruce up to a wintery/fall olive green polish that has a shimmer of gold to it. Olive You alone is very nice, but I wanted to add that extra pop, so I reached for my teenie tiny bottle of Sally Girl Gold Glitter. These polishes are not named, so Gold Glitter is an obvious name to call it. I like this glitter because it applies pretty evenly and I like the combination of small and large hexagonal glitter pieces.

This is two coats of Olive You and one coat of Gold Glitter, no topcoat. Pictures were taken in indirect sunlight and were kind of a pain to get the right shade of Olive to show up since the sun was particularly bright this day. [Stupid Glare]
