For my New Year's nails I decided to try out another polish I got for Christmas - OPI Katy Perry Last Friday Night.
It's a glitter in a sheer blue polish, so even after three coats you can still see my nail line underneath. I like my polishes really opaque and can't really handle it when my natural nail shows through, so this wasn't going to stay on for long!
Another polish I got for Christmas is this on by a brand I've never heard of - Nabi. It's multi coloured chunky star glitter in clear polish. I fished out some stars with the brush and popped them on my ring finger for a blingy accent nail.
I liked this effect but I still couldn't deal with my natural nail peeping through! The polish started to peel off when I was in the bath the next day, so it gave me a reason to give it another try.
This time I started with a base coat of China Glaze Icicle.
This is another polish I got for Christmas and it's from the China Glaze holiday 2011 Let it Snow collection.
It's an amazing foil effect polish and it's opaque in one coat, result!
This time Last Friday night was used as a topcoat over Icicle
It's really hard to capture the glitter but these two polishes go so well together. Last Friday night is a more subtle glitter (if there is such a thing!) so it works with the foil polish. Something like Rainbow Connection over Icicle may have been too much (although I know I'll probably try it anyway!).
Happy new year everyone!
