I'm continuing the challenge and it's day eight and time for some metallic nails. I had this really simple idea of the nails in my head and so I just went with that. Sometimes the simplest ideas can turn out really great! Here's what I came up with:
I started with two coats of Zoya Wednesday, then for the metallic part I painted the tips with free hand using Tiia Vanhatapio/Seppälä nail polish called Fool's Gold and finally I did a stripe of OPI Silver Shatter to each nail. So the basic idea is pretty much the same that I have already used ones with these nails, this time I did it just with other colors. I haven't used any crackle polishes for long time, and I don't particularly enjoy using them over whole nail, but I do like the look you can get adding just a bit of that crackle to the mix.
You also probably noticed already that I have shortened my nails quite a bit. They had gotten quite long again and I had those kinds of things to do where you can't really have too long nails, so I chopped of quite a bit. My nails do grow quite fast, so I think they're gonna be longer in no time. But it's always fun to have them shorter for a while, though I prefer my own nails a tad longer than this.
I have used OPI Silver Shatte before, but this was the first time I tried out Zoya Wednesday and Tiia Vanhatapio/Seppälä Fool's Gold. I really loved Wednesday, the color is gorgeous and the formula was really great! I think there's still room for this one in my stash though I do have quite a few of colors like this already... but I just can't help myself! However, Fool's Gold didn't really do it for me, it was quite sheer, so I had to paint those tips twice to get at least some coverage and then it became quite a thick coat of polish. I think I'll have to find some better gold one and get rid of this...

I had really simple mani two years ago for this challenge too as I only wore a single polish:
