I Don't Normally Wear Glitter, But When I Do . . . I GlitterBOMB!

Hey guys! I have something fun and exciting to show you today. I decided to do 
New Year's nails! I'm not going out partying of anything, but I am going out to dinner with the family, then having dinner again with the bf's family, Double Dinnering lol! So I'll stop holding you in suspense, here is my last mani of the year! btw, I hate the word mani and I resolve to stop using it in the new year...
ISN'T it AMAZING?!?! I decided to do a glitter gradient. I figured hey, this is probably going to take me like 2 hours to take off, so might as well make it worthwhile!

Today we actually had sun for the first time in about a month. So enjoy this lovely sunlit picture courtesy of Mr. Sun! 

For this look I started of with 2 coats of:

Butter London ~ Lovely Jubbly courtesy of GLYMM (a beauty sample subscription service in Canada). 

This is my first Butter London so that was exciting, and did I mention it was FREE?! I used my glymm points to get it ;) I chose this as my first BL because of pictures Carly from Lacquered Lover posted. Also, how fun is it to say "Lovely Jubbly"!

 Blurry shot so you can appreciate the sparkly  
Next up is: Nails Inc. ~ Marylebone, a lovely pink/silver glitter polish from their special effects 3D glitter line. 

I don't have that many Nails Inc. polishes. I tend to buy only the special ones like the Gossip Girl Flakies, Crystal Caps (did I mention I like sparkly things?), magnetics... they are quite pricey here ~$13. I got this one during the Sephora VIB 20% sale. 

I think what puts me off is their names. I believe they use places in London and street names and such to name their polishes, which is cool, but damn hard to remember. How does one even pronounce "Marylebone"? 

Nonetheless they have some interesting collections coming out next year so be sure to keep an eye out for Nails Inc.!

Finally, I coated the tips in 3 coats of: Finger Paints ~ Santa's Magic, my official new favourite glitter as it combines sparkly and holo! By the way, these pictures in no way do these polishes justice. They are just so sparkly! Like blindingly, distractingly, stare at them for hours on end sparkly!

At this point I felt I may have overdone it just a bit... but hey, might as well make it worth it and close the year with a bang right? 

'til next year
