My New Years Eve mani: OPI ( DS Temptation) + Kleancolor (My Valentine)

A very big Happy New Year to all my lovely readers!!!

All the partying's over and I can now start to chill out and relax into a state of domestic bliss for the next month or so.  I'm looking forward to spending time at home, experimenting in the kitchen and just being a domestic goddess really over the summer.

Okay, so this was my last mani for 2011. It actually got embellished at the last minute courtesy of the hostess of the party I was attending!  I had to wear something blingy to end the year so I chose OPI's Temptation to match the deep blue maxi dress I wore.  Temptation is a recent release from OPI's Designer series and isn't a traditional Designer Series holo but a predominantly purple fine glitter mash-up with pink and blue thrown in to the mix. The result is a glittery multi-chrome which subtly changes in the light.  It's all swimming in a translucent blue base so it took two good coats to get an opaque finish and probably could have done with a third to avoid any patchiness.

While I was at the New Years party, the lovely hostess (and a reader of this blog!) Emma allowed me to go diving through her own nail polish collection.  Of course I found Kleancolor's My Valentine which I added as a blingy accent to my already blingy fingers.  My Valentine is a mix of green, gold and silver hex glitter, with purple micro-glitter in a clear base.  Love it - I wish I owned this one!

I'm keeping this on until it chips!

Until next time.
