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!!!


  1. That's gorgeous! It looks so fun. One day I'm going to get the hang of konading.

  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.

  3. Love the gradient look, need to give it a try!

  4. I love it!!! It's so beautiful. I'm pinning it to pinterest :)
