New Years Eve Manicure

New Years Eve Manicure - Sweetaholic Beauty

The past few years I really haven't bothered much with New Years Eve. This could be because I'm getting older, my partner hasn't been well, and other life events. This year is not really an exception, as my partner is still not well, and life is still happening. I'm actually working on New Years Eve this year, but thankfully finishing at 8:00pm. I work in the city, and since it's probably going to be impossible to get home, I decided to just stay in the city and am having a few friends meet me for dinner and a quiet one.

That being said, I thought I might try and get into the festivities a bit and do my nails. I created this super easy, yet awesome looking manicure and I just had to share it.

I only used two shades for this look, Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Blacky-O and Zoya in Electra. I also finished off the manicure with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat to seal it all in. Zoya is not readily available in Australia sadly, but Electra is a pretty standard glitter polishes so there are lots of dupes available.

I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I used a makeup sponge to apply the glitter thicker at the tips of the nails, and then just used the regular nail polish brush to apply to the rest of the nail. Really simple to do!

So while I might not be out drinking champagne and partying, I will be with friends and still having a blast with these cool nails!
