After returning home and unpacking [most of] my life, I've re-discovered two huge boxes of nail varnishes. I bet you can imagine, I'm like a kid in a candy shop! I love having pretty coloured nails, added sparkles are a bonus, but unfortunately the travelling lifestyle just didn't lend well to nail varnish so in the end I had bare nails for a whole year!
My New Year's Eve nails were a simple navy blue base, with blue and silver confetti glitter laid over the top in a gradient style. I simply let the base coat dry, then added the glitter - concentrating more of the strands towards the cuticle. The idea behind the theme was meant to be the dark blue night sky [I didn't have black on hand], with fireworks or party popper confetti over the top. I'm not sure it exactly looks like that but y'know, the idea was there. Excuse the wear around the tips, I only managed to take photos a couple of days into the New Year, oops!
I received a nail stamping kit for my birthday which I can't wait to try out! I'm sure there will be a few more nail art posts in the coming weeks.
