New Years Nail Art Collab

I've hosted three large nail art collaborations on Instagram now: two rainbow collabs and a Thanksgiving collab. Now I'm at four. Heather and I teamed up again to co-host a New Years collab!

This was my contribution to the collab.

I actually ended up doing two manis because I needed to fill one more spot in the collage last-minute.

For my first mani, I was inspired by Maren and Nails. She did a French tip and covered the whole nail in a clear-based glitter. I loved it so much and did the same with a silver French of Nina Ultra Pro Shooting Star, and covered everything in China Glaze Your Present Required.

For my second mani, I went a little crazy.

I did a foiled up rainbow base with pink, red, orange, yellow, light green, dark green, blue, purple, silver, and black foil. I topped that off with two coats of China Glaze Fairy Dust. Of course that wasn't crazy enough, so I added some blue, purple, and silver loose glitter from a holo bar and hex mix I made for an art project, large multi-colored stones to two nails, and neon yellow star studs.

My foil and Fairy Dust base before all the extra added insanity:

These were so over-the-top and fun!! I actually love how they turned out! It's New Years, so too much is no such thing!
