Good evening lovelies! All last week, I was like “omg, I’m not going to be disappearing again and will be back to blogging, blah blah blah.” And what did I do? I disappeared for a few days. Dang it haha. We’re back into the crazy time at work, so it’s been a little rough getting back into the swing of these. But, I’ll get it figured out! Anyways. The 26 Great Nail Art Ideas group got together to post some New Year, New You nails on Friday, so here are my nails!
Here is what I used:
This is probably the first New Years since I started my blog that I didn’t go all out with the glitter. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! I must have been sick last week and just not remember it, because that is weird for me haha. But moving on. I wasn’t really sure what to paint for the New Year, New Me theme, so I just decided to take the easy way out and use a new polish. It’s probably obvious by now, but I’ve definitely jumped head first into the whole “BUY EVERY TONIC POSSIBLE” phase. Lava Lust is one my of newer additions!
- Start by applying two coats of Lava Lust.
- Then add a thin layer of Electric Flame over that.
- Once the base is dry, use a dotting tool and Golden Opportunity to add the design.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.
So, what do you guys think? The polka dot design was inspired by these earrings (that I can’t find the original source for >.<) This look is different from what I usually wear, but they were a nice change of pace. I am absolutely in love with how glow-y the glitters in Electric Flame look here! The purple pop over the orange base is so neat. Leave me a comment with your thoughts though!
Thank you guys so much for reading! Check back later for more nail art!
