Nailvengers Assemble!: New Years Eve

It's time for the last Nailvengers challenge of 2014! I can't believe it's been a year already. I hope we continue with the challenges throughout 2015, I've really enjoyed doing them with my blogging besties! Don't forget to check them out - The Nailasaurus, One Nail To Rule Them All & Lucy's Stash (hopefully xameliax will be back with us in the new year). For my New Years Eve manicure I've ended up with what I'm calling a Glitter Tornado!

For this look, I started with a base of Cirque Memento Mori*, my favourite black creme. I then used the dry brush technique with Barry M Gold and Silver Foil Effects, brushing from side to side across my nails rather than up and down. You can't really see the gold too well but it's there!

I finished with a coat of Glimmer by Glam Polish, a gorgeous glitter topper full of iridescent sparkle. I can't believe it's been sitting with my untried polishes - it's stunning! I finished with a coat of piCture pOlish Gloss on Top* for shine. It kind of looks like glitter being swept up in a tornado...or is that just me?!

This is another one of those manicures where I wasn't really sure where I was going when I started, but ended up really liking it. When Glimmer catches the light it really is a sparkle-fest, perfect for New Years Eve!

Whatever you're doing tonight, stay safe and I hope you have an amazing end to 2014! I still have 1 or 2 round-up posts to come, but they'll be a little late. See you in 2015! xx

  1. Wow ... sparkle-fest is the word! I've not been brave enough to try a black polish yet, but I love the way you've lightened it up with the silver polish and all the sparkles. :)

  2. Allie, you've combined polishes in this mani that I'd never think to put together. The overall look is stunning!
