Hi! Today I have my New Year's Eve nails to share with you. I've had it in my mind for a while that I wanted to use Opulent Essences 'Devils Gold' for New Years, so I created my mani with matching colours (black and gold). I also knew I wanted to add fireworks. Here is what I ended up with. Read on to find out more!
Opulent Essences 'Devils Gold' is a black base packed full of gold flakes. The base is more of a jelly, so is fairly sheer on the first coat. That being said, it builds up to be completely opaque with a second. The flakies also lay nice and flat on the nail. Below is two coats and topcoat.
For today's mani, I started by painting my index and middle nails with Pretty Serious Cosmetics 'Absence', and my ring and pinky nails with 'Devils Gold'. Both are shown below with topcoat.
I then added my fireworks. I used the top left firework image on MoYou London festive plate 05. I stamped over my index and middle nails using all Born Pretty Store items - their clear stamper and scraper, and bright gold stamping polish. I placed the image 'upside down' on one nail to make it look like different fireworks. I finished with a coat of topcoat.
What do you think? I'm actually quite happy with these! I think the combination works quite well together, and it definitely feels very celebratory! I always put fireworks on my nails when I can - because who doesn't love a good firework?! This is now my last post until January (and for the whole of 2017), so Happy New Year everyone!
Opulent Essences are currently having a break, but will hopefully be back soon. You can follow them on Instagram here for updates.
Hope to see you in the next post!
