30 Dec New Year’s Eve Eve nails
In recent tradition, I will be celebrating New Year 2015 tonight instead of tomorrow night (never one to follow the crowd, me!), so I thought I’d post my nail look for you to see as I haven’t done a nail post for a while.
It’s a pretty simple look based around colour – I was originally thinking of applying an Avon pillar box red glitter polish, but decided on a delicious electric purple to match the jacket I will be wearing.
My nail polish of choice is an oldie but an absolute star – the arresting No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Vivid Violet, topped off with Guerlain’s Le Top Coat in Ultra Violet. This edgy top coat glows under UV light, just in case I encounter any on my night out!
To get the intensity I applied three coats, anything less and it doesn’t ‘pop’ quite as much. Also, with three coats you notice a shot metallic blue coming through which accentuates the shade even more.
There doesn’t seem to be many purples around quite like this (let me know if I’m wrong!), and don’t even know if you can still get it, so don’t want it to run out any time soon! All I know is that it’s the perfect party shade and ideal for seeing the New Year in.
Happy New Year Beautyvoyagers, wherever in the world you may be celebrating!
