New Year Nails Gold and SilverSaturday, December 31, 2011
Good morning, dear readers!
How are you this fine day? Got any exciting plans for celebrating the coming of the new year? :D
I don't! XD My goal is to get better and to be able to sleep. Gosh, do I ever miss sleeping. I keep trying to catch snatches of it here and there, but every couple of hours or so I wake up and can't sleep any more. :'( Stupid congestion!
Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments and for being so supportive of my blog during this last year. I appreciate each and every one of you, and am so fortunate to have such amazing and wonderful readers!! I couldn't ask for better support on here, and inspiration! :D You are all so talented and kind, and make me feel so great to be a part of this wonderful community!
Now onto the nails!
As promised, here is my second new years manicure!
For this look I used a base of China Glaze Champagne Bubbles (I know!! I'm wearing a yellow gold!! :O This is a colour I usually will never wear!) with splotches (failed stars, hehe!) of China Glaze Icicle. I then used a glitter mini Sally Girl polish that has large and small silver glitter, then blobbed on some loose fine silver glitter from the dollar store. Oh yeah, I love the dollar store! :D For the numbers I used my black It's So Easy nail striper polish thingymaboober (another awesome Christmas present!! :D) and then I was done! Oh yeah, before I added the numbers I added a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. I didn't bother adding another after the numbers, because I was lazy and didn't care. XD
I thought that Champagne Bubbles would be perfect for New Years because of the name and colour. I am also glad to have an excuse to wear this polish, as it was probably feeling lonely being the least used out of my Let it Snow collection. ^-^
The glitter bursts remind me of fireworks and/or champagne spray after the bottle has been shaken and opened! But I am a little dopey in the head with sick right now, so it could just be me. XD
My Mom had a wonderful idea of painting a champagne bottle on the thumb nail, but I got tired and lazy and didn't do it. :S Really good idea! I should really try that next year! :D
On another note, I just finished my chocolate letter that I got on Christmas, and I could actually taste it! YAY! Chocolate letters (mine was A for my first name :D) are given out at Christmas time as a Dutch tradition. My grandmother came to Canada from Holland, and I am lucky to have access to many a Dutch treat from a special grocery store. :D They also celebrate Christmas on December 5th, so I should use that as an excuse to celebrate all month long. XD Actually all of my grandparents moved to Canada from different countries. My grandmother on my fathers side came from Holland, and my grandfather came from Czechoslovakia when the two countries were still combined. My grandmother on my mothers side came from Ireland and my other grandfather came from England. Both of my parents were born here in Canada. :D
Sorry about rambling! XD
I wish all of you a wonderful and amazing new year!! I hope that 2012 is an awesome year for you and your loved ones. Stay safe and have fun!! :D
