5, 4, 3, 2, 1....

So Christmas is over for another year. Presents have been tidied away, the turkey is about half finished and you've drunk your weight in Baileys. BUT don't get depressed just yet, the festive season is not quite over! That's right, Saturday night is New Years Eve-the greatest excuse to be a drunken mess ever. I'm spending this New Years in St Andrews with my house-mate, and I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm thinking I'll just be going for the safe option of a little black dress, that way I won't be too overdressed or underdressed for wherever we end up going. So, today I have been experimenting with some nice glitzy nail art to jazz up my outfit. 

Apologies for the picture quality, I've actually forgotten what daylight looks like:

Aren't they pretty? I'll redo them a bit more carefully closer to the night but I was just messing around tonight trying to find a look I was happy with. Here are the three things you'll need to recreate this look:

I'm so glad I found my Models Own nail varnish in Champagne, I thought I'd lost it but turns out my sister had just stolen it. Its my favourite glitter polish ever, you get really great coverage with just one coat.

What will you all be doing for NYE?


  1. Love the Ciaté polish, the colour is so lovely. Happy NYE! I'm going to Newcastle and plan on getting a bit embarrassing....

  2. Love the nails! AND I'LL BE IN SAINT ANDREWS TOO! Sadly spending time with my family - erugh! Next time I'm up I'm letting you know in advance so you can recommend places to go/eat/things to do!
    Much Love

  13. That champagne colour is gorge!! I must get my hands on it! I didn't know you were going back for NYE? Won't it be fairly quiet? xxxx

  14. Your nails look lovely - the glitter polish is really gorgeous. I'm staying in for NYE, it's the new going out, donchya know? That's my story anyway...!x

  15. You know me and my love for metallic/gold nail varnishes and this seems like the perfect manicure for NYE. I have no plan as of yet, so I might end up wearing Primark PJs and getting some form of food and DVDs. Sad, but all my friends are either working, or are still on holiday. Pomp, pomp...


  16. I've got to work on NYE, how rubbish is that?
    Your nails are adorable, by the way!
