Hi ladies! Today is a busy day as I prepare a dish of food to bring to a friend's NYE party so this will be a quick one! I was initially at a loss as to what I should have on my nails to welcome in 2013. For the past two years, I saw to it that the new year was waved in with glitter manicures (see here & here) but I wanted something a little more this time around. Cue a holographic nail polish and 3D nail accessories :D
On my thumb and index nails, I applied two coats of Color Club Revvvolution. I always forget how pretty this charcoal holo polish is so I'm glad I pulled it out to wear for the last time in 2012! ;) On my middle nail, I have two coats of Ulta3 black satin. I then applied some rhinestones, pearls and bullion beads as an accent. I also fished out the hex glitter shapes in Ulta3 pot of gold to add to the accents. I have two coats of China Glaze Tinsel town on my ring and a layering combination of black satin (two coats) and pot of gold on my pinky.
The sun wasn't cooperating for my photos - the light was weak so the rainbow from Revvvolution couldn't come out to play as well as I hoped.
I absolutely adore this manicure, I think mostly because of my 3D nail accessories accent ;) It's not often I get to use them excessively like this! What do you think, is it too much or okay as an accent? :)
Have a happy new year everyone and see you again in 2013! ♥
Thanks for reading!
