Glittery Nails x 2 ♥

Hey lovelies!

I hope this week has started off well for you all ♥

Like I promised on the last night's post, here's another NYE themed post about a couple of nail designs I created for the holiday parties. Both of them are glittery, so they are really totally appropriate for New Year's Eve party. And without further ado, let's just see the nails, shall we?

First up, a glittery explosion kind of creation where I tried out the explosion tape mani thing for the first time ever. I actually created this one with the NYE inspiration post in mind, weren't I so nice? (How many of you others really even care about the nails you have for each event? I think that's just me, lol.)

A bit of different light. I played with the filters here just to show you all the aspects of the mani properly. I took all the pics using my light box that totally lacks proper lights and the flash ruins things and I'm such a complete amateur with the manual settings of my camera so this is what you get. :D

The polishes I used here were China Glaze Bizarre Purple, China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets and China Glaze Your Present Required.

And if you rather go green this NYE, here's another option for nails:

Silver and green, a traditional holiday combo. These were actually my nails for the Christmas, so I do get it if some of you feel this is too much like Christmas colors, but as I've seen so many outfit inspirations built around the green jewel tones, I figured this would be all cool for this post as well.

And you know, you can never go wrong if you do glitter nails for a party, no matter what the color. As you can see, these were pretty simple glitter gradients that absolutely anyone can achieve if you just own a colorful polish and any glitter polish.

My polishes for this mani were O.P.I Fresh Frog Of Bel Air, L'Oréal Color Riche Green Couture, Essie Set In Stones and China Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets. I don't usually do green nails, but for this holiday season I actually went and bought a bright green one.

So here you have it, couple of options for the New Year's party nails. You can do either of these with pretty much any color, it doesn't really matter, the main thing is that you love what's on your nails - even if you have absolutely nothing on them, natural beauty rocks as well.

What will you be rocking on your nails this NYE? And, what do you think about these designs here? ♥

Now, I need to go get ready for some shopping and then for my work shift. I hope I can still post my December Link Loves tomorrow, but I don't know my schedule yet so won't make promises.

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Blog ya later,

xoxo
