Though many fashion experts stand by the ‘skin tone’ rule when it comes to gold or silver colour choices, I throw caution to the wind and wear it all! Though it may sound strange, I don’t mind if a piece of clothing, nail colour or shadow doesn’t suit me, as long as it makes me feel pretty and happy. Rose gold definitely fits that bill, and these recent additions can attest to my love for the middle of the road shade.

I see rose gold as a more modern and chic metal when compared to silver (or white gold) and the traditional yellow gold. Working in the retail jewellery sector, I often advise people on what styles look good and what suits them. I always say, go with your gut, and customers are always content with a new piece of jewellery if it makes them feel the warm and fuzzies. This rose gold phone case from Portmans gives me the warm and fuzzies, no doubt!
I didn’t hesitate to buy the new Australis nail polish in Rose Tattoo when I saw it land in my local Priceline (side note: check out the new polish range, they are all ace!) This glittery Rose Gold topcoat from Portmans was stashed inside my stocking on Christmas morning, and the two were totally made for one another. I love the way the rose gold glitter flakes sit atop the metallic rose gold, and next time I am going to try it out the glitter with a nude underneath to let it really stand out. I have worn the Australis shade by itself as a mani, and absolutely loved it.
What metal tones do you gravitate towards? I’d love to know who wears what!
*I purchased the Australis shade myself, and as stated the Portman’s polish was a gift.
