China Glaze Mahogany Magic & Champagne Kisses

Good morning!  Another fantastic Monday, right? :)  Please forgive my wonky changes in the Watermark.  I am trying to learn how to use a new program and come up with something that I feel good about using.  In the meantime I don't want to deprive you of this gorgeous mani I put on last night!

Today I have a really cute, simple mani to show you!  I was really in the mood for a neutral shade and so I started looking through my untrieds.  Here is what I came up with!  It's China Glaze's Mahogany Magic (from the Hunger Games Capitol Colors Collection), which I picked up 50% off clearance one time at a local Sally, with China Glaze's Champagne Kisses on the accent nails for a little bling!  I absolutely love how it turned out.

You wouldn't think you'd be so overjoyed to wear a brown polish but this baby has me hooked.  Both colors are stunning and I really, really like this mani.  Both colors had perfect formula.  Two medium coats of Mahogany Magic made sure that no areas were left uncovered, but you may even be able to do this with one coat!  I used three coats of Champagne Kisses, a rosy bronze glitter (you know how I hate any patchy areas) but two may have done the job.  I topped the whole thing with a goopy layer of Seche Vite (man, I need a new bottle of HK Girl instead of my almost empty SV...)


  1. That is a lovely mani! I'm not one for brown polish either, but it looks nice and the glitter adds a pop of awesome. :)

    1. Thanks! :) I knew I wanted to use a nude color or something gold to set it off a little. :)
