China Glaze's For Audrey in the Winter?

I was perusing the Russian Fortune Cookie's blog when I spotted the most brilliant idea: a beautiful sparkly nail!

I could use China Glaze's For Audrey in the Winter
I've had For Audrey it seems for ages, before it became an internet hit. I've always been into pastels/light creams. Going in and out of phases, I never got around to using For Audrey. This time of year I was hesitant to use it because it seemed like such a summery color. RFC's bright idea of layering a glitter over it, gave it a tinsel town wintery makeover!

Using polishes that I actually own already!
This doesn't sound like a big deal, but buying more polishes than you can wear becomes an annoyance at times. This idea allowed me to use two polishes that I already own. Bingo! RFC used China Glaze's Medallion over her For Audrey. I have that too (sadly), but decided to use my warmer, preferred Cleopatra.

Thanks RFC for my not-so-overly-flashy-but-still-fun-and-blingy-manicure color! ;)

I am guilty of buying way too many polishes and not wearing them. The sole reason why I have had For
Audrey since last summer and haven't worn it yet. Shame I know. I just put on Essie's Mint Candy Apple (post coming soon) and if that is a Winter color, than you can def wear for Audrey. I am planning on finally wearing For Audrey this winter. :)

I'm a polish addict & I definitely have more polish than I could EVER use...& I'm STILL buying!

Medallion over For Audrey looks so gorgeous. I have them both. I think I'll give it a try!
