Happy New Year!!!

I hope the year brings many blessings to you all!!!

The year is starting off great for me so far. I woke up without the slightest headache after a long night of partying, the weather is great here and Hubby is winning his Fantasy Football league :) These are small things, I know, but you have to appreciate the little things in life.

For my first post of the year, I want to share my New Years Eve mani. I got the idea from one of my favorite bloggers Polish Hoarder Disorder.


I added a holographic glitter topcoat. It adds a slight shimmer of pink and blue.

It also looks great without numbers.

How to create his look:
1. Base color of LA Colors LIVE (silver foil)
2. Paint tips black
3. Black glitter gradient using Uninhibited
4. Stamp in Konad white (plate M64)
5. Sinful Colors holographic glitter (#79 opal glitter)
6. Stamp numbers (plate M42)
7. Topcoat

It may sound complicated but it was quite easy. See PHD's tutorial for a quick look at the glitter gradient. I skipped the rhinestones and added holographic glitter instead. I hope you like this design. I love it!




Thanks for stopping by. Happy New Year!!!

  2. Thanks Savvy! You'll get it. Give yourself about 6 months of practicing. Try it with an accent figure until you get good at it.
