#ablecaw14 Week 16: New Year's Eve

Oh no, it's pretty much the end of this challenge since I only have one manicure left to do and post after this one! I can't believe that this is already the end and I'm not really sure how will I cope after this challenge is truly over and more importantly, how will I manage to figure out what to do on my nails since there isn't anything telling me what to do... Hopefully I'll figure something out, at least I have one manicure left! 

It's past midnight already here, so it's technically already New Year's Eve and I can share my manicure that I did for this theme. In the past years I've usually worn something more abstract for New Year's Eve but this time I wanted to do some fireworks on my nails since I've never done that before. Here's what I came up with:

I did the base with F.U.N. Lacquer Million Dollar Dream and Cirque Kontiki collection polishes. Then I taped my nails with some striping tape and painted over them with Essie Licorice and then removed the tapes. Finally I added little more golden sparkle from I Love Nail Polish All Gold Everything.

I really like how this turned out, I think it's quite perfect look for the New Year's Eve. I'm not really celebrating it too much, but it's of course fun to have your nails suit the occasion anyhow!

Oh and that F.U.N. Lacquer Million Dollar Dream, it's stunning! Keep reading and you'll find my swatches of it at the end of this post, because I just had to show it to you! 

But first, here's all the polishes and the striping tapes I used for this manicure:

Sally Hansen Nail Repair
F.U.N. Lacquer Million Dollar Dream 2 coats
Cirque Midsummer Night
Cirque Dear Dahlia
Cirque Thicker Than Water
Essie Licorice 1 coat
I Love Nail Polish All Gold Everything
striping tape


Aaand here's that Million Dollar Dream as promised:
Yup, it's just so stunning! I used two coats here and it applied really easily. I could have used third coat if I was going to wear it alone, but since I was doing nail art over it, two coats were enough. The sparkle and the holographic glimmer in this is just crazy! It's so beautiful and very unique too, I really haven't seen anything quite like this before. If you haven't yet tried any of these F.U.N. Lacquer beauties I highly recommed you do, at least this one is truly stunning.


Happy New Year's Eve everybody!

  1. Nämä on kovin ihanat! Kimallus tuolla alla on niin komeaa, pitää varmaan itsekin versioida vielä joskus omakin lakkaus noilla glittereillä :)

    1. Kiitos paljon! :) Tuo Million Dollar Dream sopi kyllä kimalteineen oikein oivasti ilotulitusta esittämään, se on niin säihkyvä ihan itsestään. :)
