31DC2013 Day 8: Metallic Nails

Hello Lovelies!!! Today's 31 Day Nail Challenge is dedicated to metallic nails!! I must admit...I took the easy way out for this one! However, this was not completely due to my laziness!! I actually really LOVE this color alone and I couldn't even imagine what I could add to it that would improve it's appearance.

Marc Jacobs Petra
I recently fell in love with the new Marc Jacobs beauty line, so I decided to give their polishes a shot first! The packaging is to die for! The polishes come in very cute and sturdy boxes and the bottles are the cutest shape and design!

For this mani, I used Marc Jacos Petra, described as a dirty bronze metallic shimmer!!! I used 2 coats (it was nearly opaque in one) and no topcoat for the images below. Application was smooth and easy. I really like the brush shape and size as well. Dry time seemed to be fairly quick for this type of polish.

In different lighting and angles, it leans more purple toned and in some it seems rose "goldish." I tried my best to capture the color range of this beauty!
       
                                                                                     
Like I mentioned before, I really LOVE this shade. I think it is perfect for fall (although we don't actually get to truly experience fall here in Florida).

I must admit, I am happy that I LOVE this polish, but also sad that I LOVE it as well! This just means, I have one more obsession added to my already polish addicted life! Oh well!

Have a Happy Sunday Folks!!
