The nail polish I am wearing is Revlon, Gold Coin (925) and can be found at most drugstores or grocery stores for less than $5.

First of all, you must know that I love nail polish. It's rare that I ever don't have my nails painted (although they are often chipped) and if they are bare, it's likely because of an overload of school work. I just love the color that they add so easily and the way that sometimes, even when they completely clash with what you're wearing, it's still ok because its just nail polish. So with all this said, of course I fell in love when I started seeing metallic nail polish all over Pinterest. So I got myself my own bottle of nail shimmer and I've worn it alot since then. My finger tips were all sparkly for new years.

And Katie rocked the silver metallics as well. The best part was that we didn't have to re-paint our nails for any NYE celebrations because we took these pictures on Friday. Perfect timing and we didn't even plan it.

Oh, and if you think I'm sparkle obsessed now, just look at my Pinboard. It's getting a little ridiculous.

Oh and P.S. These pictures were taken in a cute little town about 15 minutes from our work and it has about four streets in the whole town, one of which has cute little shops and a railroad down the middle. It's too cute for words.

    I love the polish! I always try out something new every week but I know how you feel about it chipping and being so busy. A little color every once in a while is fun :) Love the shoes too!

    Even when it starts chipping I usually still sport it for a couple days because I never have time to take it off! It's like fourth grade nails all over again! Haha.
