Happy (almost) New Year, loves! Today, I did something a little bit more funky and definitely a LOT more festive on my nails and of course, I had to share it with you…duh!!!
For this momentous day, I opted for a bit of sparkle and shine, but not by way of any of my usual glittery polishes. No, I went a little different and used a nail kit that my cousin so graciously gave me when she came to visit from England earlier this year. It’s definitely not what I’m used to, for many, many reasons (I now have glitter in places I didn’t think possible), but I decided to go for it…you know, new year, new, more adventurous me! 😉
The Nails Inc. Bling It On Rocks kit comes with 1 black polish,1 top coat to seal in the glitter, 1 jar of silver glitter, 1 jar of black glitter and a tray to use for application. It took me a bit to get used to the effect of glitter or should I say, how freakin’ weird it is to drop your perfectly coiffed finger with WET nail polish in a tray of glitter…but I got used to it, and look how good it looks! I opted for 1 accent nail because that’s more my style, but I probably could have whipped through to a full set of glittery nails in a flash. I also decided to use a super inexpensive Wet & Wild nail polish as my black base, because the Nails Inc. one provided seemed a bit watery. Weird way to describe nail polish, I know, but I really didn’t think it would last longer than an hour on my fingers, and seeing that I need these pretty nails to last me until at least 12:01 am on the 1st of January 2015, I didn’t think that would work. However, I did use the top coat to seal in the glitter and as a regular top coat on my other nails and it dried really quickly while maintaining a flawless, super shiny finish.
A big thank you to my cousin Eli, because if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have the super pretty, glittery nails that I’m sporting as I type this. So, what do you think!? Do you like glitter on your nails, or do you find it more hassle than it’s worth? Let me know in the comments!
Well, that’s all for today, friends! I hope you have a safe, glorious and happy new year! See you in 2015! 😀
Until next year,
ps – I really did get glitter EVERYWHERE…hehe….oops….Oh well! My nails are pretty and, you know what they say, “She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten…” 😉 ♥
