NYE Glam Nails

Hey everyone! How has your week been? I can't believe it's already Friday so I'm just not going to talk about it and pretend I'm not going back to work next week. Of course with my luck I came down with a cold so I haven't really been able to paint my nails. Constant sneezing and nose blowing does not make for an easy at home manicure, as you can imagine, but I'll save you the gross details.

I did manage to get polish on my nails just in time for NYE. I started with a base of Julep Lillian, a lovely pale pink creme with pretty easy application in two coats. I wanted something festive and glam, so I did a glitter gradient using a mix of Julep Yumi and Zoya Lux. What's the secret to doing this without getting glitter all over your fingers? An eyeshadow applicator. Yup, seriously. I just get a cheap pack of them at the drugstore and they're great for glitter!

I can't believe this is my last mani of 2016. I'm happy for this year to end - there's so much to look forward to in 2017 (mainly my wedding). I hope you all have a happy and healthy new year!
