Twinsie Tuesday: Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra In New York

What's your sign? This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme had us creating manicures inspired by our zodiac signs. My birthday is June 5 (same as my fellow Twinsie Nory), so I'm a Gemini!

The Gemini sign is commonly represented by a pair of twins and yellow is supposed to be the signature color of Geminis. But seeing as I'm super pale, I generally don't look good in yellow and therefore only own a small handful of yellow polishes. I got to thinking about if there was some kind of yellow glitter I could wear for this theme and stumbled on the idea of using Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra In New York to represent my sign.

This polish has yellow gold glitter in a black jelly base. It seemed like a good fit to me reminds me of stars in the night sky (fits the astrology theme) and because it incorporates yellow without making me look like a jaundiced ghost! Yay! Honestly though, the more I thought about it, the more I realized this probably wasn't the best pick for this particular theme. :-/ I feel like I should have gone with something more overt. I blame my fickle nature as a Gemini! But hey, at least it's still pretty!

This is three coats. Despite this polish being chock-full of glitter, the formula still applies very smoothly. If you like OPI Metallic 4 Life, Cleopatra In New York is very much in the same vein, albeit in gold and with larger glitter pieces.
