Summer Nails, Summer Necklace

I recently purchased Sephora by OPI's Only Gold For Me topcoat.  Only Gold For Me is unique and different in that it has large round pieces of glitter in addition to smaller traditional glittery bits.  It was released for the holidays and has been out for quite a while, but it looks just as lovely on your nails for summer as it does for holiday parties!  I like to layer it over everything, and right now I especially adore it over OPI's Strawberry Margarita shade. 

I also really like pairing makeup and nail polish looks with jewelry and other accessories!  Like if I'm wearing a scarf with shades of purple, I'll apply a little purple eyeliner, or match my red lipstick to my red shoes.  Do any of you do this, too?  If not, try it sometime!  It's a modern, more fun equivalent of matching your handbag to your shoes (does anybody even bother with that anymore?)!

The most perfect necklace to pair with a pink and gold manicure is this stunning Birds of Paradise statement piece from Stella & Dot.  Could anything be more quintessentially summer?!  I love it!


If you'd like to purchase your own Birds of Paradise necklace, or any other gorgeous Stella & Dot piece, shoot at an email to Lori Anne at shopgirl367 (at) live (dot) com!  They have some truly fantastic collections.  Look for more jewelry/makeup pairings when the new fall pieces debut in July!

What else would be cool to pair with pink and gold nails?  I'm thinking maybe a gold clutch purse worthy of Studio 54, hot pink heeled sandals, or a delicious fruity cocktail (poolside, of course)!  What would you wear or carry?  What are some of your favorite beauty/accessory combinations?  Let me know!


  1. oh my god! this is so funnY! i've been looking for that opi gold nail polish yesterday! you've done such a nice work with your nails! :)

  2. Haha, that's brilliant. I love the polish! I'll have another post in the future on more ways to wear it. And thank you, that's so sweet! I actually don't take care of my nails like I should, but thank you for the compliment!
