My Ball Has Dropped.

Yep. I went there.

As I write this, the majority of you lovely people are out celebrating the end of 2012, the beginning of 2013, perhaps even plotting who your midnight kiss will be. I'm cozied up on the couch with my electric blanket and a small white dog listening to the sounds of a snoring sister on the other couch (she's going to kill me if she reads this!!). I'll be lucky if I make it until midnight, I'm falling asleep already and it's only 10:15 p.m. Lame, eh? Well, before I pass the you-know-what out, I'd better post my last nail art of 2012, right? I know it's been a while, and my absence will be explained soon, so just be patient, and know that I plan to start posting more regularly again. :)

Anyway- Farewell 2012... and Hello 2013! Here's hoping everyone's 2013 is abundant with blessings, love, and happiness!

For the final nail art of 2012, I used silver hex glitter to do a NYE version of a moonicure! I tried to convey that the 'moon' is the ball dropping in Times Square. :)  I hope you like it!  I used Zoya Storm from the Ornate collection to simulate all the confetti falling in the night sky. I absolutely love this polish!!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2013!

I used:

Black: American Apparel Hassid
Black Holo: Zoya Storm
Gold: China Glaze 2030

Basecoat: Cult Nails Get it On
Topcoat:  Seche Vite

See you next year, kids! :)
