'Midnight Sparkle' for the New Year

Just picked this one up a couple weeks ago. I LOVE blues but I was a little disappointed that it looked better in the bottle. I used one thick coat and topped it with Seche Vite but wasn't crazy about the 'look' so rather than taking it off I thought I would try some Essie 'Matte About You'. 

I really do like it better. Then, just to add a little interest, I turned it to a tone on tone funky French with some SV on the tips.

It does have some decent depth to it but its still not exactly what I was hoping for. Oh well, C'est la vie. It'll do for the next couple days;)

Oh and FYI, you really want to keep those hex glitters away from you cuticles or its a nightmare to do your cleanup!

Christmas nails :)

OPI mini (don't know the name). I picked this up last year and finally got around to trying it lol.
I really love CG 'Ring in the Red' but this one is even better!
It needed a bit more holiday cheer so I added some snowflakes and a few 'flurries' :D
Super fun stuff!
Makes me thin of a Christmas sweater.
Did you all have a good Christmas?
Any ideas for my New Year's Eve mani?

Santa nails

China Glaze 'Ring in the Red' topped with a little nail art and some China Glaze 'Fairy Dust' on the Santa suits.
I know this design has been done to death but I still wanted to give it a try. Everyone seemed to like it too :)
Have y'all done this before?
