Happy New Year, everyone!
With so many things going on at the end of 2016, I hardly had any time to do my nails. I opted to do a fairly quick and easy glitter placement accent nail with French tips so that I could look somewhat festive for New Year’s Eve.
I started by painting my nails a shimmery midnight blue. This color is called Lolo from Julep.
I used Born Pretty holographic diamond shaped glitter for the snowflakes.
The French tips were done with Metal Medium from Finger Paints.
To apply the glitter, I tried to use a top coat that did not dry too quickly and applied each piece with a damp orange stick. Another layer of top coat over the glitter helped to seal the deal, although you will find that two layers of top coat work best.
The look is reminiscent of snowflakes, the ball at Times Square, and Hannukah all rolled into one, so it’s very appropriate for the season.
Have a great 2017! Happy polishing!
