I’m one of those weird people who get really excited about the new year. Part of it is I’m just happy the holiday season is over. But the other part is I just love getting dressed up and having an excuse to wear as much sparkle as possible.
Of course this translates into my nail look of the evening. I wanted to do some very literal New Year’s nail art this year so they all include 2013.
I had alot of fun doing these! I’d love to know which is your favorite and what you plan to do (or what you did…) for your New Year’s manicure!
This was a manicure I did back in the middle of December but I get so excited about New Year’s I just can’t wait until after Christmas! I mean…I was so excited I even posted a picture I took on my phone over on TDV Facebook page!
This one is the least sparkly of the ones I did. I used Layla Golden Touch as a base then used a toothpick and wet n wild Tangled in My Web for the design. I took individual pieces of glitter and wrote out the 2013, NYE and added a champagne glass for good measure. It was a bit of work but I absolutely loved the result! Oh, I almost forgot to add, I filled the champagne glass using Love & Beauty Tinsel Town.
Ok. This is definitely the manicure that’s the most fun! And it was super easy. I used Maybelline Black Onyx as a base. Used a toothpick and Love & Beauty Tinsel Town to write 2013 on the ring finger then took silver craft glitter to make the other nails SUPER sparkly!

I am so sad that this manicure REFUSED to photograph properly! Funny enough, there is a better picture I took with my phone on TDV Facebook page. The lights in my lightbox just washed out the 2013. But, I wanted to post it anyway, because it looks truly fabulous in person. This is a throw back to my New Year’s Eve manicure from 2010. I used the exact same polishes!
For the base I used China Glaze Grape Pop then topped that with a coat of Sephora by OPI Too Good For Him (side note: there are a TON of dupes for this polish including SinfulColors Frenzy). Again, I used Love & Beauty Tinsel Town and a toothpick to write out the 2013.
