Serum No. 5 Gild Free NOTD

During the summer, I try to grow my nails out and kick my nail biting habit and thus far I've been pretty successful. What's helped is being out of school (stress causes me to bite my nails!) and trying to consistently paint my nails. I figure the more effort I put into painting my nails, the less likely I'll be to bite them. The polish also acts as a protectant against my extremely peely nails.

Now that I actually have nails, I do want to better show off the first indie nail polish I ever purchased, Gild Free from Serum No. 5 (from their Winter collection, a bit off-season for summer but it's absolutely beautiful). This is one coat of Gild Free over two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. Gild Free is an ivory crelly (cream jelly) with different sizes of gold glitter. Depending on how the base lays over the glitter, it can sometimes look copper to the light.

I feel out of the loop when it comes to nail polishes so do you guys have any recommendations for creams, shimmer, and glitter lite polishes from brands you like? I'd love to dip my toes into more indie brands!

  9. I'm also out of the loop when it comes to nail trends. This is a really cool glitter because at first glance, it almost looks like droplets!
