Hello All! Today I'm going to show you my New Year's mani and a few random swatches that I did last year (wow,it feels weird saying that)
New Year's Mani
I wanted something sparkly,but didn't want to use silver or gold.This is 1 coat of China Glaze Blue Sparrow over 2 coats of Jessica Casablanca (a black jelly with blue micro-shimmer). I love how this turned out!
And this is a winter-themed Konad I did using OPI Ink suede as a base colour,and Konad special polish in white for the pattern. This is plate M31.
The words "work-appropriate" and "glitter" seem oxymoronic,but in the form of China Glaze Stellar they aren't. This is a lovely beige-mauve packed with tiny silver glitter. Sparkly and subtle,this is one of my favourites from this collection.
Sephora by OPI 212 is one hot,gorgeous mess! I have no idea what to call this. It's a black jelly,with flakies and shimmer,and holographic glitter,and duo chrome flashes in the flakies. It's crazy like a fox,but I love,love,love, it :)
I was hesitant to buy MAC Seriously Hip because it looked so much like China Glaze Wagon Trail (one of my favourites ever).When I finally bought it,I noticed that it has flakies ( almost completely invisible on the nail) and a bit more shimmer than Wagon Trail.They're close,but not close enough to be duplicates. That said, I love this one too :)
I did this to make up for the fact that I've been such a slacker lately :P I promise to post more regularly in 2010.
Have a wonderful day!
Ginger-who spent New Year's Eve with my nearest and dearest,and is pretty sure the "non-alcoholic" champagne got my niece drunk.Oops.
