My New Year's Eve Nails!

December 28, 2011

Hello lovely readers! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Who is ready for New Year’s Eve (NYE)?! One of the reasons I absolutely love this holiday is because it is totally acceptable to wear tons of sparkles, sequins & glitter….all of my favorite things! To be completely NYE ready, it is totally necessary to have nails that sparkle and shine!!! 

Nothing says NYE to me more than black and silver glitter so I wanted to combine the two instead of having a solid glitter nail! In particular, I wanted a French manicure using silver glitter and black. The silver glitter I have on is from Essie’s Luxeffects Glitter Topcoat Holiday 2011 Collection called “Set In Stones.” Check out the collection HERE….it is SO fabulous. Essie’s “Set In Stones” is a different look than OPI’s “Crown Me Already!” (which is also a silver glitter I had on my nails HERE) in that the Essie glitter particles themselves are bigger so it creates an overall shinier look. The black color I used is OPI’s “Black Onyx.”

Here is how they turned out:

As you can see, I got a French manicure with 3 coats of silver glitter on the nail bed and black on the tips. On my ring fingers I used black on the nail bed (with 1 coat of silver glitter) and the silver glitter (3 coats) on the tips.

So are you going to have a sparkly nail look on NYE?! Leave me a comment & tell me your favorite NYE nail look!!!

Thank you for reading!!!
