Nails of the Week #25: My NYE Manicure!

I know I know, it's been nearly two weeks since new years but in my defense I was busy putting out a lot of time sensitive content! Anyways, I know I have said it a lot but this has got to be my favorite manicure yet! It's glitzy and fun, plus real easy to do (no tools needed!) and I'm already trying to figure out different color combinations to make this an acceptable look year round! You can say I was inspired by MissJenFabulous' tutorial here, basically followed the idea but I replaced loose glitter with just a glitter top coat. Anyways let's get into the specific colors I used and the detailed pictures!

First of all the base coat is my trusty Rimmel Lasting Pro Finish in Black Satin. The only black polish I own ever since a college housemate borrowed my OPI one and never returned it...I'm not complaining too much though since this stuff is wildly opaque in two coats and the brush is so large and flat about two swipes covers the nail. I am sad that this line was discontinued though so fingers crossed this bottle never runs out. The white streaks are Sephora by OPI in White Hot. Not the best white and I'll definitely stick with Essie or OPI once this bottle is done with. The shiny glittery streaks is my all time favorite mixed metal chrome: Formula X in Alchemy. I won't even waste time raving about this guy you can just click here for my dedicated NotW on this color for some drool worthy photos of this gorgeous color. Finally to make it girly and picking up the slight pinky rose gold quality of Alchemy, I used Essie in A Cut Above, a nice chromey pink glitter as a top coat to really signal the party in my nails. I'm so obsessed with this exact look and color combination that it will definitely be my go to look for any sort of celebration occasion! It's so easy too since I didn't use any tools, all streaks were used by simply starting at various lengths and dragging the brush!
