NAILS | Happy New Year's Eve! #CBBxManiMonday

Just like that, it is NYE and the last day of 2018. I had a decent time in 2018 and though I try not to be too sentimental about looking back, but I have overall positive feelings about 2018 and am thankful for it! Each year seems to fly by so quickly and I always wish I could have accomplished more, but such is life. One thing that I have been so happy about is having three lovely bloggers join me for #ManiMondays since Spring this year! These girls are just as crazy about nail polish and more importantly, we never let the team down. I think there have only been a handful of Mondays this year that we all didn't have our "nails on" so for me personally, I love being held accountable even if it's just for something like #ManiMondays.

I had no idea where today's manicure would end up as I knew I wanted glitter, but I didn't want to do just silver glitter. I also wanted to use nail studs and in the end I sort of just barfed it all up and did everything, BUT with a nude base it doesn't seem quite as crazy. Like a nude lip with a crazy eyeshadow look!

As a base, I used two coats of OPI Infinite Shine in Half Past Nude* and then glitter-fished for shards of glitter using OPI Gaining Mole-Mentum, which is a mixture of gold and silver glitter. I chose this glitter because I thought they "roughness" of the glitter pieces would be something a little different. Then I probably went a bit overboard and added the silver studs around my cuticle which I probably could have done without, but once I did the one nail, I felt compelled to do the rest!

The glitter is very sharp, so you will need at least two coats of top coat depending on how thick you make your coats.
