Thirsty Thursdays: The Shapeshifter Cocktail and New 31DC - Day 3: Gold

Hi loves!!

Today is the third day of the New 31-Day Challenge which calls for mani with gold.  But it is also Thursday and what do I do on Thursdays?  I virtually drink of course!!  You didn't think I would ditch my favorite feature of my blog, did ya?? =))  I would never disappoint you and cancel a Happy Hour!!  (and yes, I do realize I sound like a lush, but a good cocktail ALWAYS puts me in a good mood LOL)

Today's drink of the week is The Shapeshifter cocktail inspired by the newest cool polish that made its way to my stash:  China Glaze "Shape Shifter"!!

First I started out with one layer of Shape Shifter, a metallic bluish smoky grey.  The picture shows brushstrokes which are really not that visible in real life.  The real color is also a little warmer.  As a Very nice, flowy formula.

Next, I sponged about half the nail with top coat.  Now that's a new one for me! (sponging with a topcoat)  The area underneath this layer turned gorgeous medium/navy blue!  Love!!

Then I incorporated some gold into the whole look and I used China Glaze "Angel Wings" to sponge the tips.  I literally picked it up just a couple days ago at Sally's and I'm so so glad I did!!  It's a gorgeous holographic gold glitter, which makes it really a perfect combo (holo + glitter?  hell yeah!)!

Shape Shifter is part of China Glaze Tranzitions collection released this January and is available for sale at China Glaze retailers.
Angel Wings is part of China Glaze Holiday Joy collection released for the holidays of 2012 and can still be found at the retailers.

And here's the drink you've been waiting for!!!

  1. I like what you've done. But I don't understand those shapeshifters.

    1. Thanks Helena!! The Shape Shifter, just like the other Tranzitions polishes, changes colors when you apply topcoat on them. So two colors but only one polish!

  2. It's ok that you're a lush because lushes are fun! A drink sounds SO good right now but instead I'm waiting for my husband to get home so I can look at gist finger and tell him if we need to go get stitches or not. Ugh. Men.

    1. Yep, men can be like children sometimes...
      Glad you like me as a lush LOLOL :))

  3. Honestly? that cocktail doesn't sound like it would go for me.
    That mani though... is something else completely! It's gorgeous!! I love the color combo, I love your tips - they look so sugary! And I really like how this turned out!!!

    1. I know I won't go for the drink, I'd get effed up in a minute!! Haha :))
