Artsy Wednesday: New Year's Eve

Since Artsy Wednesday is doing New Year nail art a week early, I actually wore these for Christmas - lucky they work, and are a pleasant change from the wonderful Christmas tackiness I've been rocking recently!



I used Face of Australia Colour Pro in White Gold as the gold shimmer base. This is a new-ish quick-drying line from FoA, and I've found it to be impressively chip resistant. Unfortunately White Gold is a tad streaky, especially if you get overexcited and do thick coats (my bad!). Luckily I was planning to layer Nubar Black Polka Dot on top anyway. Fishing out the bigger glitters is a bit of a chore, but I am in love with this combo. I did a reverse "rebel nail" (my new favourite term for accent nails) using Skinfood Black Stone and Hello Darling 24K.



I've noticed that I'm a big fan of black and metallic for NYE - something about NYE just makes me gravitate towards that colour combination.

What are you wearing for NYE? If you're not sure yet, check out the other AW ideas
