New Year's Nails

Hello everyone!  Today for your viewing pleasure I have my New Year's nails.  Now since I suck at nail art and didn't have a ton of time I went pretty simple.  Almost too simple because the glitter curves were not visible in a lot of settings.  I used Essie Mesmerize as my base color.  Two nice even coats and it was perfect.  I think this polish just needed to age a bit because the first time I ever wore it the application was super streaky and uneven.  This time it was fabulous.  Then once that was dry I used french tip guides turned sideways to add some glitter sparkle in the form of Elevation Pitaraq.  I did two quick coats of Pitaraq and then topcoated it all.

I hope you all had a great New Year's!


PS:  No sun picture today because this mani sucked in the direct sunlight.
