Twinsie Tuesday | Mani Matching Bag

As any longtime reader of this blog knows, I am a bag whore.  I spend way too much money and time looking at and buying bags.  I even have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to my obsession with pretty, leather things.  So when asked to post a mani that matches my purse, my first response was, "Which one?  There are just so many."

So I decided to go with the one that's currently being employed (I change my bag depending on my outfit), the Michael Kors Jet Set Tote in a deep oxblood/burgundy color.  Just a fantastic carryall that serves as a chic neutral and is durable enough to be thrown around and stuffed to the gills.  Here's a photo of the bag.

Because of the gold hardware, I chose a similarly toned burgundy polish with a silvery gold shimmer.  Behold, Bonita Rembrandt's Muse.  My brush was wonky and uneven, but I just angled it and was able to apply this smoothly in two coats.  It's a tad dull so top coat is a must (and even a second top coat on Day 2 because it dulls super quickly too).  However, this polish has staying power.  I'm pretty chic free after a few days of wear as I type.

The shimmer isn't hidden but it's not terribly in your face either.  For around $3, it's worth having for a staple fall/winter shade.
