The sophisticated look-

I am actually going to be in season for this post. Normally, I don't really care but today's polish is from the Winter 2011 collection.  I am also attempting to be sophisticated.  Yes I know, it's a stretch! But I think I pulled it off.

I always think red and gold are so damn classy together.  I wanted to do something for the holiday season that wasn't snowflakes or candy canes or stuff like that.  I like this so much I may repeat it for Christmas day.

First up, you know the drill-the silly bottle shot.



This is China Glaze Velvet Bow and Julep Sienna.  I am really getting a lot of use out of that Julep.  The Velvet Bow is a stunning deep burgundy creme.  I am in love with colors like this.  I just had to have this when it came out.  The problem is there was no sun the day I did this mani.  So I have no sun shots of just Velvet Bow alone.  But here are shade and indoor shots for you.

Isn't it beautiful?? I just love this color so much.  It's dark, it's sexy and it's a creme.  These are a few of my favorite things!! Oh yeah, I love that song.

Now you well know I can't just leave this alone.  I got out my brand new XL plate I and stamped with Konad special Gold polish.  I then used the Julep to do the funky tips but it didn't match the Gold stamp.  So I put a layer of special Gold over top of the Julep since the special polish wasn't enough to do the tips alone. Here is the final result.  I took the sun shots two days later.  Here is sophistication at its finest.

Isn't this awesome?  I am loving this a lot!  It reminds me of brocade and fancy things.  Do you agree?  I must say, I really impressed myself with this one. Isn't is perfect for Christmas?

What other color combos go perfect together?  Any thoughts out there?
