Busy Girls Challenge Week 3: Oxblood

Hello lovelies! Sorry I didn't post yesterday, but I was just not feeling it. Today I have a really cute mani to show you for this week's Busy Girls Nail Challenge. We are already on week 3 and I have enjoyed looking at the manis that the other ladies have created. Be sure to check them on out Instagram, using the tag #busygirlnails.

For this mani, I began with one coat of Cult Nails Lamestain, which is a very deep oxblood creme polish. I forgot to take pics of it alone (OOPS!), but they will be provided at a later date. At this point, I used 2 coats of Elevation Polish Toubkal, which is described as a darkened red purple with gold, red, and pink large irregularly shaped shimmer. Hey...I don't know if this description necessarily fits for me, but this polish is gorgeous. That's really all that matters!
I love the way the shimmer is subtle, yet very noticeable at the same time. That probably makes no sense, but I love this and it is perfect for fall.
To add a little POP to this mani, I added one gold heart stud to each nail, using topcoat. After applying, I finished the mani with one coat of HK Girl Topcoat by Glisten & Glow.

What do you think of this look? I think it is simple and jazzy. Are you participating in the Busy Girls Nail Challenge? If so, don't forget to tag your pictures on social media so everyone can drool over your mani!

Good Day Mates!
