Nail Art Tutorial - NYE Nails - Kiss Me At Midnight

Helllllo gorgeous! Today I have for you a quick and easy NYE nail look! What a bummer that it's on a Tuesday, but at least your nails can have a party while you wait for the ball drop and then pass out (at least those are my plans). What are your plans?

  • Pointer - Nicka K New York Red Apple base with China Glaze Silver Platinum lines (used a striper brush) and colored in some triangles with Zoya Tomoko.
  • Middle - Essie Limo-Scene base with Zoya Tomoko gradient (used a sponge to apply).
  • Ring - Zoya Taylor base with Nicka K New York Red Apple kiss (using my Little Kisses Nail Art Tutorial) and then added some Zoya Tomoko to the lips.
  • Pinky - Essie Limo-Scene base, Essie Set in Stones on top of that and than BadAss Polish Bling It on top of that.

If you wanted an even easier look, ex-nay the nail art!

  • Thumb - China Glaze Silver Platinum base with Zoya Tomoko leopard print and Nicka K New York Red Apple rings around the spots (close up shown below).


Some quick easy tips if you're in a rush:
- Use a quick dry top coat like HK Girl from Glisten & Glow!
- Dip your hands in cold water. Apparently, it helps speed up the drying process.

Glitter Removal:
They look so pretty - now how the hell do I get this crap off my nails? 
The tin foil technique! Soak a cotton ball in non-acetone nail polish remover and a grab a couple of sheets of tin foil. Cut them into a square a few sizes bigger than the cotton ball. Place a soaked cotton ball on your glittery nail and then wrap the piece of tin foil around your nail. Basically, it should look like a little tin foil hat for your finger. Continue to cover the rest of your hand (unless you're awesome and can do both hands at the same time). Let them sit for about 5 minutes and then twist and pull off! Wa-la! No more glitter.
