Christmas Challenge 2013 Day 8: New Year’s Eve

So, on this last day of the Crumpet’s Nail Tarts Christmas Winter Challenge we’re celebrating New Year’s Eve (a few days early!)

I went with some multi-coloured blingy glitter over black.

The base is W7 Black and the multi-coloured circle glitter is the very appropriately named Auld Lang Syne from Tara’s Talons. I chose Auld Lang Syne as my prize from Tara’s Talons when I won a recent giveaway held by Model City Polish. The prize was sponsored by nine UK indie polish makers, so I have so many lovely new UK indies on their way to me, which I’m really excited about. I got to choose which polish I wanted from Tara, and Auld Lang Syne just called out to me. I do love circular glitter and the colours in this really complement each other well. Tara sent my prize straight away, and seeing as it was Christmas week, I think that was just amazing of her.

For the stars on the accent nail, I made my own stencils using painter’s tape that I cut out using a star-shaped craft punch. The stars were quite large, so I put two part stars on the nail. I had ordered a smaller star punch before Christmas, which would have worked better, but it hasn’t arrived yet.

I was a bit too hasty with my top-coating, and so there are some bubbles over the circle glitter nails. It’s a lovely colourful manicure though.

The stencils you made for the stars have worked really well! The combination of colours in the glitter polish look great together too! This design is perfect for New Years Eve! 🙂

Thanks – I recently bought some pre-cut stencils (SMART Nails) and thought I might be able to make my own!

It’s so lovely – round glitter in fab colours. I think I’ll use it a lot.
