Nails to ring in the New Year ♥

6 Comments

Simple and chic, but with just a little something extra – a dash of Millionaire!

So I finally tried out the half-moon manicure trend, also sometimes called a moon or reverse french. Personally, I’m really loving it – at least with this pair of polishes and it looks gorgeous in person.

The only thing I forgot to do was apply a layer of top coat over the glitter polish before applying the black, so the black did not come out as smooth as I would have preferred it to be, but I just didn’t feel like starting over :/

I hadn’t cleaned them up yet, so pardon the messy nails…

ArtsyArchitette New Year Holiday Half-Moon Manicure Nails

What’s on my nails:

Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle Salon Strengthener as my base coat, since I recently trimmed my nails down very short and wanted to get a little length back for the holidays.

Nailtini “Millionaire” Lacquer (2 coats) – you can read my thoughts on this polish in my last post.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro “430 Black Satin” Lacquer – love these polishes!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat

Have a very Happy & Safe New Years!! See you in 2013 ♥

    • Haha, thank you! I had been on the fence about the trend myself, and this was my first attempt at it, but I’m happy with the result – luckily 🙂
      They are so much fun in person, with the glitter flecks and tinsels in the Millionaire polish reflecting the light.
      Happy New Year’s Eve to you too!
