New Years Eve manicure

Hello hello :) Wow, I can't believe this year is coming to an end. I'm going to be clichéd but honest - it truly has flown by! I've finished my third year of studies in University and entering my last. This time next year I'll be totally finished with studying omgsh!! Haha, shall think of it and cross that bridge when I get to it though :P

In terms of nail polish collections, I haven't been blown away by them too much. The most memorable and stand collection to me was definitely China Glaze's Anchors Away collection. I remember it being the first collection of 2011 which I loved. It's been a great year for crackles (to be honest, I'm burnt out of them!) but I can't wait for the new trend of 2012. Here's to hoping it'll be lots and lots of flakies!! I love them so much and need to grab them all when I can access them haha!

Of course, with the New Year approaching, I have to wave it in with some bling and glitter :) I decided to wear OPI Excuse moi from the Muppet collection as a full mani since I haven't done so before. It's a glorious red-pink base filled with awesome glitter. For someone who rarely sports reds or pinks, this definitely wowed me! I applied two coats - it's that opaque! Upon closer inspection though, there is still a slight bit of visible nail line so a third thinner coat may have helped. Because of the glitter, this is a top coat eater, but I don't mind the grittiness so I didn't double on the top coat :)

It was so beautiful that my camera spazzed and couldn't photograph the true shade. I had to do some editing in photoshop (hence the redder looking fingers) and even then, the colour is still a little off. Imagine it a little pinker, or you can just go and grab it from your nearest nail supply store :P The first photo is definitely the most colour accurate.
