Belated Happy New Year!

Hello lovelies!

Happy New Year! I know, it's super late, but I've been so terribly busy and tired that I simply couldn't write. I started a new job and that took some prepping and it has been two days now and I'm wiped and I still got three days of intensive training to go before the weekend. So I'mma keeping it short, 'mkay?

This is my NY mani! It's a simple glitter gradient with Incidental Twin "Bushfire" over black and 4 coats of Bushfire on my ring finger. I freehanded some champagne glasses with a black striper and some gold polish. 

Bushfire is a delicious mixture of three types of red microglitter; metallic, holo and matte to be exact. It's incredibly beautiful albeit a bit sheer, so it works best as a topper, but the 4 coats dried fast and application is easy, so using no undies is not a big problem.

This and many other beauties can be found in Samantha's shop! Find all info here:

Now I also did a the nails of some friends and family! My American friend had her sister over and it also happened to be the sister's birthday on NY eve, so I did her nails nice and shiny:

This is two coats of Emily de Molly "Oceanic Forces" and some rhinestones. Photos were taken with flash, no daylight left...

And my friend, who has been graduating and therefore nail biting, wanted a subtle earth-toned mani:

So I grabbed Catrice "Browno Mars" and subtly stamped with Konad Silver an Q Girl 41. Photos were taken in the lightbox.

One of my sisters didn't have a whole lot of time, so I went super simple:

This is a beautiful brown jelly with holo micro glitter from El Corazón and gold snowflakes on the thumbs and ring finger bases.

My other sister had a little more time, so I went full-on stamp mode:

This is silver Konad stamping with BP-L016 over Ms. Sparkle "Capricorn"

So of course I gotta ask: Which of these is your favourite?
