These were my last manicures of 2014. Thankfully, they were still safe and sound on my camera while my computer was way less lucky.
This is China Glaze December To Remember from their Holiday 2014 Twinkle Collection. It’s a gorgeous steel blue with duochrome shimmer that shifts between gold and pink, which unfortunately wasn’t captured too well in my photos. You can see it in the bottle, though!
It’s a perfect winter color. It’s subtle and and pretty and applied like magic. It didn’t wear terribly well, but I’ll forgive it for its easy application. This was two coats.
And this is Deborah Lippmann Magic Carpet Ride! Not really winter-themed, but it did immediately make me think of New Year’s Eve.
Magic Carpet Ride is a black jelly that is absolutely packed with glitter. I’m wearing one coat here, and this is after wiping a good amount of it off because there was too much glitter—large holographic silver hexes, small silver hexes, and silver and blue diamond shapes. I have a coat of black underneath this, because multiple coats of MCR probably would have been horrible to work with. One coat is all you need and then some! Then just a add a coat of Gelous and a coat of topcoat to make everything perfectly shiny and smooth. ❤
