Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a safe and amazing night! Ever have an amazing idea and then go to execute it and it looks horrible? Hi, yeah, that's what happened for day one of Painting in the New Year nail art challenge - The Countdown! 

In my head, I had this amazing picture of somehow fitting 10 through 1 written numbers on my new shorty nails and then magically make a disco ball on my pinky. I'm almost afraid to show the result.

Funny thing about the technique I used to get the "effortless" glitter blown from the tips look. It's not effortless. In fact, it's the least effortless (does that even make sense?) and messiest thing I've ever done. That includes the straw blown paint technique >:0 Anyway, I blew this glitter EVERYWHERE. It was all over. So then I got frustrated, took pictures and took this mani off. My apologies for the glitter everywhere!
