Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday - New Year's Fireworks Nail Manicure

Some Press Samples Featured*

Hello lovely readers! For  my last Step-by-Step Nail Art Thursday of 2016, I thought it would be great to share a simple DIY nail art design for the New Year's celebration.

Keep reading after the jump for all of the details!


The Base
For the color scheme, I went with 2 classic shades: champagne and charcoal. And to go along with the glitz and glamour of a fancy New Year's affair, I chose Blinded by Bubbly by Painted Polish by Lexi (ring and pinky fingers) and Fashion Show by F.U.N Lacquer (index and middle fingers, reviewed here).

The Accent Nails
For the ring accent nail, I stamped a firework image from the Cici & Sisi Christmas 2015 plate using white and gray stamping cremes from Moon Flower Polish* and the original clear jelly stamper. I placed glitters from Open Waters by Reverie Nail Lacquer (reviewed here) around the fireworks, and carried the design scheme over by doing a reverse glitter gradient over my pinky finger.



The Final Look
I finished off the look with a quick drying glossy top coat.

  14. I LOVE this! It's so cute! I think the best part is the mix. I just recently had those acrylics where nearly every nail was different and nothing was matching and I LOVED it!
