Happy (late) New Year everyone!!!I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I apologize for not posting my NYE mani sooner but I have been really busy! Better late than never, right?
Before I get to the mani I have an exciting announcement to make! Starting today (after this post) I will start a themed week to kick off the new year and it's a pretty awesome one if I do say so myself. To kick off 2012 I will be having a "Week of Holos!!" Yes, a whole week worth of holo goodness. If you saw my nail mail post last week you know I have a ton o awesome new holo polishes from Llarowe to try out and I can't wait!! So stay tuned for mega-drooling. ;-)
OK, on to this mani. I wanted something fun for NYE and I hadn't had a chance to use my Nubar Black Polka Dots or White Polka Dots yet. I thought about doing them alternately over black and white polish but wanted to try them together. And what color better to put them over than red? I think it turned out super cute!! It reminds me of my Grandma's kitchen, she had a black and white tile floor with red countertops, so retro. :)
Once again, I have to apologize for the red in these pics. My camera seems to be ok with every color except red. The first pic I am posting is from my cell phone so it is crappy quality but the color is the true color of the polish.
I used 2 coats of Avon Real Red topped with Nubar White Polka Dots and Nubar Black Polka Dots. I got pics of the red on its own but they turned out way too orange so I didn't even include them. The formula on the White Polka Dots was better than the black. The white spread pretty evenly but the black I had to "dab". Either way it was not a problem and I just want to say I LOVE THESE POLKA DOTS!!!! OK, here we go!
Crappy quality but the real color....
Though I'd show them alternating before I did the second coat. I can't wait to wear these over black and white polish. :)
Excuse the stray glitter, I was in a hurry. :)
What do you think? Appropriate for NYE or not glitzy enough?
