Essie Nail Art: Serena Van Der Woodsen Wedding Dress!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

A few months ago, my buddy Alaina and I watched Gossip Girl (via Netflix, duh. Because we're cool like that, lol!) as I had never seen it. After watching the finale, I was mesmerized by Serena Van Der Woodsen's wedding dress. So I found this picture of the dress and decided to recreate it on my nails. Months later, I remembered that I never actually posted the manicure! Ha! I'm crazy.

Now, my problem was that I couldn't find a polish that was a brassy enough gold to fully replicate the color of the dress so I had to make Essie's Good As Gold work for me. I used Essie's Blanc for the white and a nail art brush for my "stripes".

Obviously this is not an exact replica of the dress but it's the best I could come up with because I don't think a gold polish exists to match that dress! If you know of a brass, "liquid" gold color of polish, please let me know! But I quite like this manicure! What are your favorite brushes for nail art??

Talk to you soon!
