Flashy New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year's Eve loves!!

  How cute is this?! Chalkboard Nails did an awesome Gold and Black mani not too long ago and that gave me the inspiration for this New Year's Eve mani. I loved the color combination and I absolutely agree with her on the though that Gold and Black= NYE. My look is lacking one major cool factor that hers has... That amazing Black square glitter... What do I have to do to get my hands on THAT?! Well anyways.. I got this little stamp in a kit and I immediatelly thought of a NYE mani. Cheers!!

  So for this festive look I started with one coat of China Glaze Midnight Kiss and then layered Three coats of CG Lighthouse over the Gold foil to really make the Golden tones in Lighthouse come to lfe. The stamp comes from a Salon Express kit. The plate was SE22 and I used Konad Black Special Polish. For a full review of Salon Express kits head over to Vampy Varnish. This was not the most pleasant plate to work with. The results are better than I was expecting for the cost of the entire kit... I'm not too mad at how these turned out. Then to give the effect that the stars were "raining down my nail" I sponged the tips of my nails with Color Club Take the Stage and Deborah Lippmann Boom Boom Pow. I topped it all off with some SV followed by INM Northern Lights. Have a safe and aweone NYE everyone!!! See you again next year!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oooh, I like this! The look from the sponging, kind of blurring out the stars or whatever, is awesome. (And I'm glad to read I'm not the only one obsessed with Northern Lights. I think I'd put it on every one of my manis if I could/it would look right.)

  6. Awesome manicure! I love the gold glitter tips. I had to go look at the inspiration... and I agree that the black square glitter is awesome (it looks like ticker tape or something!) but yours is just as amazing.
