Well, Christmas is over and I hope you all ate too much and relaxed too much because New Year's Eve is around the corner and we have to prep for parties! With that in mind, I have been brainstorming some New Year's Eve manicures and here is the first one - champagne bubbles!
This one is understated and beautiful. It's soft, neutral, feminine and delicate with a tad of sparkly glitter to bring it up to new year's eve party level. I used two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Naked as the base.
Usually, I don't like most pinky-beige polishes on me because they can cause the "lobster hand effect" (certain polishes accent the red tones in my skin and my fingers can look straight up creepy - of course, this completely depends on one's skin tone). However, I was surprised to find out that I absolutely love how Naked looks. It kindof creates a mannequin hand...in a good way. It's very flattering as the colour elongates the fingers and the nail beds.
For the champagne bubbles, I used Deborah Lippmann's Stairway to Heaven.
