HPB Presents: NYE Countdown

This is my last mani for 2015 - I'm excited that I get to look forward to 2016 and get more of my design ideas out of my head and onto my nails! HPB is still doing winter/festive designs so I'm getting one more done! I really enjoy participating in these monthly link ups and hope they continue next year :)

To be honest, I wasn't too enthused about doing a NYE mani. This has been an exhausting week and I'm just looking forward to having Friday off! But I did manage to get one last mani in before the year ends, so I hope it's somewhat festive!
Pretty much the only reason I sat down and did anything at all is because my coworkers were disappointed that my nails just had color on them and nothing fun. I guess they already got used to my nail art!

This beautiful color is Fair Maiden Starry Night, a midnight blue holo with golden flakes. This is one of the winter collection colors and I've really enjoyed wearing it. I used 2 coats for opaque coverage but the flakies went hiding on me.

I dabbed on a bit of gold holo glitter as I thought gold and navy would pair well. This is Gimme the Bits! from Lucky 13 Lacquer (provided for review) it's a clear base filled with various sizes of glitters, fishing for them is not needed as there's plenty of them!. And for the clock-like stamping I used Gold Medal from Sinful Colors and a MoYou plate Gothic 07. My clock didn't turn out as I'd hoped, but I didn't want to take the time shrinking images to fit more onto my little canvases. So that's it! Thank you very much for dropping by to visit and I hope to post more in the coming year :)
