NYE Nails: Abstract Art Black, Silver, & Blue Glitter Manicure

NYE Manicure, New Year's Nails

My New Year’s Eve manicure is directly inspired by my NYE outfit, which is generally in this color palette, and of course, abstract rather than precise. It actually kind of reminds me of a bathing suit I had in the 80’s, which I loved, obviously 😉 I was originally leaning towards black with blue only but the blue glitter wasn’t popping on the black background as much as I liked, so I had to get creative. I have to admit that I LOVE Sonia Kashuk metallic nail polishes. This black lacquer has fine silver shimmer to it and the silver metallic just goes on so easily and perfectly in one coat, it doesn’t get any better, especially for the price.

Here’s what I used…

* Sonia Kashuk “Starry Night” {used for my Seismograph Manicure as well}
* Sonia Kashuk “Smoke & Mirrors” {silver metallic}
* Essie “Stroke of Brilliance

Here’s how I did it…

black nail polish

* First, paint two coats of black shimmer polish and let dry.

* Next apply three quick swipes of your sliver metallic starting at the base of your nail and sweeping upwards. *TIP: allow most of the polish to drip off your brush to get the “dry brush” effect. Let dry.

* * TIP: if you paint too much, add a little black in between to create edges. Note my pinky nail above w/a bit too much silver and below, how I fixed it.

glitter nails

* Finish with your blue glitter polish that doubles as a top coat. Apply as much or as little glitter as you like, or only to certain areas. Get creative 😉
