New Years Nails

Good evening, dear readers!

I hope that you all are having a great Friday!  :D
I was going to be visiting someone dear to me today and tomorrow, but alas... I got sick.  :(  Very sick!  But at least I don't have bronchitis, so that is awesome (I rarely used to get sick but almost every time I did, it would turn into bronchitis).  Here's hoping that that won't happen! o.o;  My brain feels like it is in a bit of a fog, so if I ramble that may be why.

So, the manicure for today is: New Years! XD

I'm pretty proud of myself for getting ANY nail art done today, as I feel like a bag of poo.  >.<

To write the numbers I used some nail art polishes that I got for Christmas, and boy are they fun!  Seriously fun! :D  This was the first time I used these before (other than testing a few strokes out on my thumb on Christmas morning) and I am seriously impressed!

The first two photos show the more simple look, and the last two are, "embellished" shall we say. :D


I used China Glaze Blue Years Eve for the base, then Revlon Midnight Affair for the blackened tips.  I used the shimmer blue It's So Easy nail art polish for the numbers.  (When I think of the company name "It's So Easy" I start singing "happy go lucky!" from that Japanese YATTA! song XD)

I then added China Glaze Snow Globe, some loose bar glitter and then Rainbow in the S-Kylie to get some glitter going.  I went over the numbers in blue again, and then I used the white nail art polish (same company as the blue) to define them even more.

I have another New Year manicure, but I will wait until tomorrow to post pictures of it. :)

I think one of my first resolutions for the new year is to get better!!  How about yourselves?

Take care everyone!
