A Sparkling Sendoff

The sun is setting on 2014, and 2015 will be here in the blink of an eye. I’m not 100% sure where the past year went, but it’s gone already! The day is here to kick our nail art game into high glitter gear and pull out all the stops to ring in the New Year!

And you know what? I did just that!

I didn’t want just any standard black and gold NYE mani (especially because my next cover-inspired design will be black and gold!), so I went with the equally sparkly and festive white and champagne look! If we’re being honest here, I can’t stop staring at my hands, that’s how happy I am with the way it turned out.

The look was completed with Essie Blanc and Julep Nell and Soleil, two polishes from my December Maven box! As always, when striping, always use a quick dry top coat in between the base and accent colors.

I would say this is a manicure that looks fancier and harder than it really was to create, which are my favorite kinds. I mainly used striping tape to create all of the color blocks and lines and a dotting tool for the polka dot nail. As for the individual glitter pieces, I went through the painstaking process of individually placing each glitter on the nail with the help of my dotting tool, which wasn’t hard so much as it was tedious. BUT SO WORTH IT!

What are your nails wearing for NYE? Happy 2015 and Happy Reading!
