Beauty Brains AND Brawn--Gold Old Buffy!

Hi Readers!  Today I have a gorgeous mani featuring Gold Old Buffy from Essence's Vampire's Love line.  Way before Twilight and The Vampire Diaries there was Buffy The Vampire Slayer.  I loved that show--not as much as my friend Destany though!  She knows the names of every single episode! I was lucky enough to get this entire set from my polish "wifey" Lori.  I think we became friends because we have the same name lol.  I really love her though she is a fantastic friend to me and I'm grateful every day something as trivial as nail polish brought her into my life.  Actually I've met the nicest people from my love of both nail polish and chinchillas.  Yes readers I said chinchillas lol!  I have 10 of them as pets and I've met the best people there are in the chinchilla world too!  Maybe someday I'll show you some pics of my crew!
Now back to the nails lol!  Gold Old Buffy is so far my favorite polish of 2012.  It's what I like to call a pretty "ugly" color.  To me I say it's a blackened olive green glass fleck with gold shimmer.  It's really stunning!
See what I mean by a pretty "ugly" color??? Man this is gorgeous!
But because it's me you know I don't leave well enough alone so I stamped on it lol!  It was an easy stamping of Sally Hansen Gold Chrome Pen on BM21
Lovely isn't it???
Here's another shot
And one with flash
It's so sparkly it was hard for me to keep the glare off!
Flash close up!
Now let me just tell you this mani wasn't the first design I tried on Gold Old Buffy.  I did another one that just completely ate up the gorgeous beauty so I covered it up and stamped again.  Check out this before and after pic
I like the after so much better than the before!  I really think with the lace design it looks like an old tapestry--a perfect look for a polish inspired by vampires wouldn't you say?
Speaking of Vampire's who's your favorite?  For me it's no question--the super hot and gorgeous vampire private detective Mick St. John.  I still cannot believe CBS cancelled that show!  I mean look at him! He is SO hot!
Lucky for me I can still see the hunky Alex O'Loughlin on Hawaii 5-0!  I miss his long hair though lol!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. That is such a beautiful polish and I love the design you stamped over it! This manicure is gorgeous! :D

    1. Thank you Ashesela I'm really happy with how it turned out!

  2. This looks amazing! I love Gold old Buffy on its own, but with your stamping it looks even better! I like this manicure much better than your first try=) And I'd love to see pictures of your chinchillas(I'm a huge animal fan). Huh, so far my favourite vampires are still Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise...nothing beets the old classic Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles! Nothing! =)

    1. I'm sure I will have future chinchillas pics posted lol!

  3. I like the first stamp you used! I'm going to have to dig that one out for myself soon.
