Happy New Year! - simple New Year's Eve manicure!


Happy New Year everyone!

For this year's New Year's (Eve) manicure, I decided to keep it a lot more simple than the previous year, where I spent about 5 hours on my design. It barely took me 30 minutes for this one, so that's definitely a plus, considering I've been pretty busy lately.

I decided to use my all-time favorite polish for this design. I got this polish at Christmas, but it's way prettier than anything else I own. I paired it with black, to keep it simple and elegant.

I won't keep you any longer, go on and celebrate!

Colors used:
licorice - essie (black)
HD - Milani (silver holo)

Merry Christmas! - Red Santa manicure


Merry Christmas everyone! I know, it's only Christmas Eve Eve, but I won't be home until present time and I figured I'd rather put it up too early than too late.

I didn't get to do a lot of festive manis this year, mostly because uni is super duper stressful at the moment. Now that I'm on winter break, I'll hopefully get to invest more time in this blog.

If you couldn't tell, Santa is winking, he's not missing an eye or anything. It looks weird if you don't know, so I wanted to point that out.
The red polish did end up bleeding through the white, but that is my top coat's fault, since I used a different one for this mani.

Colors used:
forever yummy - essie (red)
Alpine Snow - OPI (white)
spin the bottle - essie (nude)
Jade Is The New Black - OPI (green)
winter wonderland - essence (pastel blue)
