This year my dress is a royal purple so I was struggling with what to do with my nails. I didn’t want to do a bright color and I didn’t want to opt for a metallic. And I definitely wanted to do glitter!
Deborah Lippmann Pseudo Silk Kimono is one of my favorite releases from the past year and I thought it would be a perfect solution to my nail polish crisis (yes, crisis!). I used Pseudo Silk Kimono as the base and then used POP Beauty Steel Glitz to add glitter to the tip. I focused the glitter at the very tip of the nail and let it fade towards the base of the nail.
I must admit….I love, love, LOVE this manicure. I did a test run of this manicure last weekend (I mean, can’t be risking an untried manicure to ring in the new year!) and got a ton of compliments on my mani. Unfortunately, it did chip in my sleep (really….). But it wore perfectly well for a night out which is, of course, what I was going for anyway!
Like I said, I do love this manicure and I don’t think it has to be just for New Year’s Eve. I posted a picture of this manicure on Instagram and katiepang1990 suggested this might we a good wedding manicure and I have to say….I agree.
There are many more swatches under the jump!
I hope everyone has a fabulous New Year’s Eve! See you in 2014.
