Happy New Year Nails!

I got inspired by a bunch of photos on pinterest (come visit me!) I was going for a glitter gradient type mani on deep blue/cobalt. Then I realized I don't really know how to do a good glitter gradient and I (shockingly) don't own a deep cobalt (at least I don't think I do!). So, I went with deep shimmery blue and metallic polka dots using my dotting tool and some toothpicks!

 My husband thought it came out more like fish scales (which he thought was a compliment because he loves everything to do with fishing) and after second thought he's right! I love it even though it wasn't quite what I was going for!

Color of the Year!

I'm glad to see Emerald was the "color of the year". Green is one of my favorite colors. I love Ciate, but they are a little pricey which was why I was pretty excited when I found this kit at TJ Maxx for $10.00!

 I was supposed to be Christmas shopping for other people, but there's no harm in picking up a little something for myself, right!?
 The "sequins" in this kit, is really more like big pieces of glitter and I couldn't get the look on the box no matter how hard I tried, but I was happy with what I came up with. I got a lot of compliments.
