NYE Nails

Hey everyone! How was your holiday week? We did our usual tradition of Chinese food and a movie (Vice) on Christmas and spent the week relaxing at home. Tomorrow for NYE we'll be making homemade pasta and watching the ball drop on TV.

Today I'm sharing my NYE mani, which almost always involves some glitter. I started with Diorific Vernis in the shade Amethyst, which the hubby got for my birthday last year. I just love this deep eggplant purple! I topped if off with a glitter gradient using FUN Lacquer Paparazzi. I think any color combination with this look would be perfect for NYE.

Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!

Born Pretty Magnetic Polish

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? We just hung out and, as we usually do on weekends, ate some good food.

I received this magnetic polish from Born Pretty Store a while back and painted my nails with it but then totally forgot to post the pictures. I have the color Alitair and Vega, which is a holographic chameleon polish with a purple to blue/green shift. For these polishes it is recommended to layer them on top of black, which is what I did.

I also received a magnetic tool to use with this, but to be honest it wasn't a very strong magnet so the effect wasn't great. The color is still very pretty!

When you place an order with BPS make sure you use my discount code ASYW10 for 10% off! Hope you have a great week.

Hanukkah Nails

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? I haven't posted on here in about 3 weeks, but I just haven't been feeling super inspired to paint my nails lately. I think the weather getting colder and it getting dark SO early is throwing me off. But tonight is the first night of Hanukkah and I have a fun design plus a new polish color to share!

During Black Friday, Ulta was selling all OPI polishes for $5 so I ordered 3. One of them was Dreams Need Clara-fication from the new Nutcracker collection. I would describe it as a baby blue/periwinkle. I actually don't have a color like this so I'm thrilled to have this one! The formula is great and I achieved opacity in two coats. For my silvery accent nail I used a combo of ILNP Mega X and Essie On a Silver Platter.

Of course I had to top off the look with a little dreidel for the first night of Hanukkah. Cute, right?

Hope you have a great week!
