Girly Grit

I am departing from the norm, or the expected for my New Year's Eve Nails, by doing something that best describes me, instead of over the top sparkle and confetti.

On top of brand new skates, which I just loved yesterday, I placed some zen flower stickers, that add an element of hippy and natural girl to the glam and grit of BNS. The combination wowed me.

I L-O-V-E it, and I cannot thank my friend Nakesha enough for sharing the stickers. I got a fun 10 minutes of play, and I fell in love with the results. I am all for switching my nails up every day, but if this would stay on a month I would keep it.

I placed the stickers randomly over top, waited for them to adhere and become polish-like and then went over it with about three top coats just to make sure.

The result was a textured and pretty mani that makes me happy, and because that is the whole point, I am keeping it.

And just for fun, here is what Nakesha brilliantly did with her share. She placed a mix of colors over a french, and it created a classic, flowery and fun look that perfectly fits her as well. Great Job and Great Find!!

I wish you all a Happy New Year, I know mine will be filled with tons of excitement, including th best Halloween wedding ever and lots of time with the ones who matter, less worrying about the ones who do not, and more time making myself pleased.

Love this look, it is so pretty!
Your friend's nails are very pretty as well.
Brand New Skates is a favorite of mine too. What a great color!

Happy New Year!

Very pretty mani! I always thought nails stickers were something you used when your were 12-13 but they actually look really good! May just have to look into getting some

Ya thats what I thought too... but my mom got me some for Xmas, and then Nakesha got me these so I thought I would give it a go--- the BF couldn't figure out how I had done it.

It's been three days and they still look great. Everyone at New Year's loved them and they've continued to put a little Spring in my Winter. :)
