New Years Eve 2011 manicure fail

Hi ladies!! Just squeezing in my last post for 2011 to show you my New Years Eve manicure. It's a fail! I had no idea what I wanted and ended up doing a whole load of different things that didn't work. But hey, you see the good and the bad on my blog! I recall my New Years Eve mani last year was a fail too ho hum.. curse of New Year perhaps??!!

Thumb: I used 2 coats of Face of Australia Iron Ore* and stamped firework looking design from Bundle Monster plate BM02 using Konad Special Polishes in yellow, purple, blue and pink. I topped it all off with a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust!

Index finger: I did a purple gradient using Teeez Outta Control on the top 1/3 and some sparse purple glitter on the top 2/3 and a clear glitter over the whole nail.

Middle finger: I used 2 coats of Face of Australia Iron Ore* and stamped star image from Bundle Monster plate BM21 using China Glaze Millenium and added some star dazzlings.

Ring finger: I used 2 coats of Face of Australia Titanium* and added 2 coats of OPI Rainbow Connection*.

Pinky: I used 2 coats of the lovely Teeez Outta Control holo that Marte kindly sent me in our swap.

Thank you all so much for your love and support in 2011. It means the world to me to be able to share my manis and everything in between with you guys. I hope you all have a wonderful, safe and happy New Year! See you in 2012! xx
