Before & After: Fierce Glequin French


Today I put together a simple fall look that's quick and easy. :)

First, I started with Color Club's Winter Affair; this is a deep maroon that has gorgeous red-orange flecks in it, from their Holiday 2012 collection of the same name (I recently reviewed the collection; if you missed it, you can see my review by clicking here):

My second step was to add a coat of Snow-Flakes, which is also from that same collection. Snow-Flakes is a standard multi-color flakie, but that doesn't make it any less gorgeous:

Finally, I wanted to add a little bling, so I chose glequins in colors that coordinated with the color of the flakies in Snow-Flakes. I used two green, two orange and one yellow glequin on each nail, in a Fierce French pattern:

Glequin are pretty. Smudges in my topcoat and little fibers on my nail tips are not. >.<
There you have it--a fast, but stunning fall manicure with, in my opinion, just the right amount of bling. Of course, if you want more bling and want to add more glequins, I say go for it, you awesomely fierce creature you! :)

Thanks for looking. :)
