I wanted to change my manicure, but I wasn't quite sure what to do. I have never really been a fan of New Year's Day designs. The always seem too sparkly and well, kind of cheesy. Don't get me wrong. I like a good bit of cheese, but drawing the year and champagne glasses just isn't my kind of cheese. So I took to the web for some inspiration, but I just wasn't feelin' anything. So I looked through my plates and found a a pattern that I thought was rather pretty. It is actual Bundle Monster BM-404 which is a design by the fabulous Wacky Laki! I love her nail art and I thought it would be cool to to a jelly sandwich with the stamp.
As you can see I didn't do that. When I went looking for a jelly I came across OPI Sparrow Me The Drama which is one of my all time favorite pinks (and I don't like a lot of pink). The new problem was that I thought having the pattern on all of my nails would be a bit much, but having it on only accent nails didn't seem like enough. Enter in my love of Elleandish's style and I knew what I needed was a glitter nail! Nina Ultra Pro Boys 'N' Berries seemed like the perfect match to SMTD!
I am rather pleased with the outcome. It is so feminie and girly. I don't usually like that, but this is rather lovely, if I do say so myself.
Can't forget my thumb!
Yep, I like this a lot, in fact I have worn it for five days! It still looks fresh and pretty, but as any good nail art addict knows, it is now time for something new. I have a few ideas up my sleeve, just you wait.
