NOTD: Trophy Wife Tattered in Gold

The names of these polishes go together really well, don't you think? Here are Essie's Trophy Wife and Color Club's Tattered in Gold (which you can win in my giveaway, by the way!)

 The more Essie polishes I try, the more I fall in love with the brand. The application is flawless, with complete coverage in 2 coats. Trophy Wife has a really bold shimmer to it. The polish didn't need sprucing up, but that wasn't enough to stop me from applying some crackle polish!
Tattered in Gold is applied just like most other crackle polishes - only after the base colour is completely dry, and varying thickness produce different textures. I did this mani with thin-medium coats of TiG. I think that these contrasting colours compliment each other well!

Thanks for reading,


  1. oh man i love the way the color club crackles!
    i want a gold one so bad but was unimpressed by swatches of the sally hansen gold.
    i hope i win your giveaway :P

  2. The Sally Hansen brands do not appeal to me based on the swatches. What is nice about the CC crackles is that they're the same price as Sally's! $6 CAD, much better than OPI :)

  3. I have been lemming Trophy Wife and it's nice to see a blog post about this colour. I love the layering you did with the Color Club. Very cool!

  4. That looks awesome! I didn't realize CC had crackle! I love how it cracks.

  5. The colors look cute together!
