Ringing in 2013 in a Blaze of Purple and Glitter

Happy 2013 everyone!! I hope all of you enjoyed your last day off before the world gets back to normal. For some of you like myself, I was actually working today, but that’s ok, the weekend will be here soon enough!

I struggled with coming up with a manicure for New Year’s Eve as I had no idea what colour I even wanted my nails to be. All I knew was that there had to be some glitter involved! I eventually decided on Kleancolor – Metallic Purple with Color Club – Hot Like Lava sponged on the tips. Unfortunately, you can barely see it. I finished off with two coats of OPI – Pirouette My Whistle which is such a fun glitter! I didn’t think it would be such a blast in a bottle! My nails kind of look galaxy-esque don’t they?

Looking forward to more nail art and polish for 2013!

  8. Glittery nails are a must for any kind of celebration, I think! These are so pretty, I had an awesome gold and blue glitter gradient and I didn't even take photos! Such a sin.. I can't wait to get back home and get into my nail routine again lol
