New Year's Eve

A super quick post because we've got friends coming over in about 45 minutes, and I have some last minute cleaning to do along with starting to cook dinner!

Since it's New Year's Eve, I needed to bling it up, even if I'm not going out.

I started out with a base of my favorite black, Wet N Wild Black Creme. I really need to buy more of this. It's cheap, goes on in 1 thick coat, dries well, and is good for stamping. What more could you want?
Then I added my new favorite, INM's Northern Lights Hologram Top Coat Silver.

It really is amazing. I used two coats on each finger. My pinkie looks like it has more, but it just applied that way. Over black, this glitter seems like a starry sky.

Well, I couldn't stop there, so I added more sparkles.

First I put on Barry M Limited Edition Effects Silver Glitter. I tried sponging it on, but it turned a bit white (look at the pinkie nail). So I tried a different technique. I place a thick line at the top of my nail, like you would with a french manicure. Then I wiped off the brush in the bottle and pulled the color back towards the cuticle. Tada!

As if that wasn't enough, I added Sally Girl Chunky Silver Glitter over the whole nail. I didn't take a picture before I added the Sally Girl so you the pictures look the same. Buuuutttt....the Sally Girl is big hexgaon/round pieces and some smaller chunks as well.

Hope you all like it!

Happy New Year to those who are already past midnight, and Happy New Year's Eve to those who have yet to celebrate. 2012 can only bring good things.
