HAPPY NEW YEARS! Party Manicure!

Just got off work and in a rush to get ready for tonights party but figured I'd have time to post the party manicure anyway! I started with maybe 5 design ideas, narrowed it down to the 2 I thought would be fastest to make and ended up running out of time and doing none of them but a even easier design that still looks festive and more complicated than it is! I'm wearing all black and thought white nails would be a nice contrast.

I'm a leftie so this naturally isn't as nice as the right one

Thumb Close Up

For this I started with 3 coats of Essie Blanc, the only white polish I own. Then I used a black nail art liner and outlined the petals, filled them with Zoya Trixie. Did the dots using Color Club Black and a dotting tool. I really need to buy a smaller dotting tool, could barely touch the nail with it or the dots would be too big, but I used what I had! You can tell I was in a hurry cause pretty much all the dots got dragged in the topcoat :( On a good note it isn't as noticeable in real life as in the pictures.

Hope you all have a great day and evening!

That's a very pretty nail design! I really like that, looks elegant and works well as NYE mani. That Zoya silver polish is very pretty :)

@Kelly Thank you :) Zoya Trixie is probably the best silver glitter I have. It's just loaded with fine silver glitter, very opaque and pretty.

@gildedangel Thankie :)

@Nihrida Thank you and absolutely, feel free to borrow it :)
