NOTD: Festive Red & Gold

Red and gold are the perfect festive colors for the holiday season. But I came up with this combination while looking for something to go with my red Indian suit with coppery golden stone work as red nail polish alone was just not enough.
Side note: It was really difficult to take the pictures because firstly, the sparkly golden shade over red looks different from different angles and secondly, the shine made it hard to capture the real beauty of the combination. So, I would recommend you to try this combination once to see how pretty it is because the pictures are not doing it justice.
To get this look, I used a coat of coppery gold polish (Sally Hansen Coin Flip) over a deep red shade (Essence Fame Fatale).
Essence Color & Go in Fame Fatale: Gorgeous true deep red shade and one of my most favorite polishes of all times. I have gone thru two of these and will probably be buying another one soon. It has a nice big flat brush and gives full coverage in just two coats. Retails for only $1.99 CAD.
Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Coin Flip: Beautiful shimmery coppery gold shade. It can be worn over other polishes or on its own ( requires at least 3 coats). This shade has a couple of exact dupes, which I will share in another post. Retails for $2.47 CAD.
How did you like this combination? What are some of your favorite nail color combinations?
Thank you for taking time to read this post. Hope you have a great day!
