NAILS | Happy New Year! #ManiMonday

Well, people 2018 is here! I feel like people seem really excited about 2018 compared to 2017. I know that even my first post of 2017 was a bit of a downer talking about Trump and dry skin - two things that annoy me, but now it feels like 2018 is going to be better even though 2017 wasn't particularly bad for me. According to my "achievement jar" I got to do a lot of cool new things and I also took the initiative to travel twice for pleasure which is a good thing for me because I'm not a good traveler. Yes, I may have caught a stomach bug on one flight, but I survived! I have plans for Italy this year so I am hoping that I will feel comfortable enough to fly a longer distance without being heavily drugged.

This manicure is a fun one as I didn't have any NYE-themed decals or vinyls and then again KISS Nails saved the day with these Holly Jolly* nail stickers that conveniently said the message I so eagerly wanted to convey!

I started off with two coats of OPI Check Out the Old Geysirs* and then hand-painted a French tip using OPI Turn on the Northern Lights*. Both shades are from the OPI Iceland Collection. I then peeled off the stickers and applied them onto my nails. The Christmas lights are actually supposed to be connected like a puzzle nail, but I just cut them to fit what I wanted. One coat of top coat sealed everything in and I was ready to go! Unfortunately the next day, the top coat really made the stickers curl up at the edges so my nail surface felt quite textured which was a bit annoying.

Happy New Year to everyone and I look forward to more beauty, nails and skincare goodness this 2018! I am going on my very FIRST no-beauty-buy this month so hopefully I can keep you all entertained and if there are things you would like to see here/more of on Cosmetic Proof let me know! I am looking to change things up!

The OPI Iceland Collection is available now.
