WhatIWore: One of my resolutions for 2014 is to do something creative and constructive every day. Whether it’s sewing, knitting, cooking, drawing or an art project (like nail art!) - I’m happiest when I’m creating. I used to make a habit of taking care of my nails but in 2013 I resorted to gel manis or salon visits - a treat I very much enjoy- but I’d like to get back to doing my own manicures for a while.
To kick things off, I’ve created a manicure inspired by the first seconds of the new year when the ball drops and the gold and silver confetti is unleashed. A little glitter goes a lot way in a manicure, but you’ve got to start with a pretty base color. i like darker shades like black, navy or a deep burgundy like I’m wearing here (Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Wine Not).
I applied two base coats of Wine Not and then added the gold and silver glitter to the base of my nail (or you could do the tips like this). Festive but pretty enough to wear to your first day back to the office in 2014!
