Challenge Week 13: New Years!!!

I'm 1/4 of the way through the 52 Week Challenge! Time is flying, and this weeks theme is New Years Eve- an occasion that always makes me think of fireworks :) I was planning to attempt something complicated to recreated actual fireworks, but I really really wanted to try out two of my new polishes (shown yesterday) so I did a simpler and more abstract firework look :)







I used my new e.l.f. Black polish (e.l.f. haul coming soon!) as a base, then added lots of sparkles over the top- the meteor shower polish has awesome strings of holographic glitter which does actually remind me of fireworks :) I also used my new flaky polish on my thumb, it's not so 'firework-esque' but I love it anyway! I also added the Sparkle Top Coat to my thumb and ring fingers (because why the heck not!?)


e.l.f. Black, Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat, Meteorites Meteor Shower,
Andrea Fullerton Gemstone Overcoat (flaky)


Here's a close-up of my thumb, I have black, with a layer of Gemstone Overcoat then a layer of Sparkle Top Coat. You can see the duo chrome of the flaky a little better in this picture:




And I know this is blurry (like stupidly blurry) but look how shiny and beautiful the meteor shower polish is!!!




What are you doing with your nails for new years? Any exciting parties to go to? I think I'll be home alone (which is good because I can watch, eat and drink what I want- and I don't have to dress up!)

  5. This is so much fun! :D I don't really have any plans any more for New Years. I was going to visit with a friend but I just got sick and it may be contagious. :'(
