New Years Eve manicure

What a year 2010 has been! It has flown by so quickly and I am so blessed to have been able to share it with all of you on my blog. I want to thank each and every one of you for all your wonderful support in 2010!! You have all made my year so much more enjoyable =)

Here is my very rushed New Years Eve mani. I don't really like it but I don't have time to redo it unfortunately. I should have just stuck to using one of the OPI Burlesque glitters on all fingers! x) What have you got planned for New Years Eve? I'm off to a party tonight which should be fun! I'm not much of a party person but I'll make the most of it hehe.


Here's what I used:

Thumb – 2 coats of China Glaze Light As Air and stripes using Kiss nail art stripers in white and black. I also added a purple flower dazzling from Essence.

Index – 2 coats of Ozotic Pro 601. I then freehanded a french tip using BYS Pink With a Punch and used Kiss nail art stripe in silver glitter for the smile line.

Middle – 2 coats of Ulta 3 Snazzle and a purple rhinestone in the centre.

Ring – 1 coat of Misa High Waist Hue and 2 coats of OPI Show It and Glow It!.

Pinky – 2 coats of China Glaze Empowerment. I then did vertical stripes using Kiss nail art stripers in white and silver glitter.


I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year! Here's to a great 2011 filled with happiness and lots of nail polish and beauty items!!

    @Winnie: The OPI Burlesque glitters are all just so pretty, you need to get some yourself hun! I'm biased but I do agree lol. Sydney Harbour is a wonderful backdrop and we know how to ROCK NYE!

    @Danielle: Ahhh thank you so much Danielle! I'm honoured that you like my manicures so much. I didn't like it much because it didn't turn out as blingy as I had imagined it would. I'm a perfectionist what can I say lol.
