L'Oreal Money Manicure: New Money and Gold Carat

Hi everyone! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend so far. Today I have a quick post of a manicure I did a couple days ago. A couple weeks ago L'Oreal generously sent Mir and I a package of assorted nail polishes. When I saw the names of these 2 polishes I knew they needed to be used together! I decided to do a glitter gradient using New Money as a base colour and Gold Carat on top. 

L-R: L'Oreal New Money and Gold Carat
L'Oreal New Money is a chartreuse green, half way between green and yellow. I absolutely love L'Oreal's Colour Riche line, I have yet to be disappointed with the polishes they sent us to review. Every polish applied like a dream and could certainly pass off as one coaters.

Gold Carat is part of L'Oreal's new line of top coats which became available in store this month. Gold Carat is a gold glitter top coat, for the gradient I used a sponge to dab on the glitter. I found that applying the polish directly onto the sponge worked much more effectively. The sponge really absorbs the polish so I found that I had to apply Gold Carat multiple times onto the sponge to create the look I was aiming for.

There you have it folks, if you guys haven't tired a glitter gradient before don't be intimidated by it. This look was so super easy to create and pretty much fool proof. It does require a little bit of clean up afterwards because things can get a little messy with the sponge.

L'Oreal Colour Riche polishes are 11.7ml in size and are sold for $6.99, L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Top Coats are 5ml in size and are sold for $6.99. Both can be found in most drug stores in North America.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone!
