As is true with almost every awards show, I watch for the fashion and beauty first and the actual awards second. Today’s Oscars are no exception.
I wanted to do a manicure in honor of the occasion. I immediately thought of Julep Oscar. Clearly there is not a more appropriate polish for the Oscars. But the glitter is a bit sparse so I wanted to layer it over another polish. The obvious color to layer gold over would of course be black. But I wanted something a bit fresher so I went with white. Ulta Snow White to be exact.
After applying two coats of Snow White I topped my manicure with one coat of Oscar. I really like the results. It’s kind of classic with a twist.
This year I made a serious effort to see all the nominees for best picture. I’ve seen almost all of them and despite it being a long shot, tonight I will definitely be cheering for Argo. It was my favorite movie of the year by far! I’d love to know what your favorite movie was this year. Even if it’s not nominated for best picture!
As always, there are more swatches below the jump 🙂
