Ok, so at the point of writing, we still have 8 hours and 40 minutes left until we leave 2018 and enter 2019 but I already have my NYE nails done. I’m not going anywhere, and I might not make it consciously to midnight, but at least I know my nails are pretty entering into 2019.
When I spotted this firework design on the Beauty Big Bang XL-032 stamping I knew pretty much what I wanted to use it for.
The plate has 11 full nail images and 5 smaller ones and all are etched perfectly. I had no problems with pick up on any kind of stamper.
On my middle nails I did a gradient base of Barry M Plum, Barry M Blue Grape and Barry M Crystal Blue, which made an absolute beaut of a gradient and is one I might have to use again for a different mani. Then I stamped the image, but in 2 piece. First I only covered the people at the bottom of the image, using Moyou Black Knight. Then I did just the fireworks in the image using Beauty Big Bang Gold stamping polish. I really love how it looks.
The for my other nails I did a base of Barry M Black Forest and sponged on a gradient of Barry M Majestic Sparkle, which is supposed to be the embers of the fireworks raining down. For the numbers I used Moyou Typography 04 and the Beauty Big Bang Gold stamping polish.
What have you got planned for NYE? Anything exciting? Or a nice quiet evening in with family and pets? Don’t forget that if you have gone out to a firework display to make sure you have secured your pet in a nice safe environment where they can’t hurt themselves if they get spooked. And if you are staying home with them, don’t be hesitant about giving them snuggles if they get panicked!
Stay safe and have fun!
