Glam NYE Nails + My Favorite Posts from 2015

I love glitter and sparkle any time of the year, but I especially love it for New Year's Eve!  Whether you're watching the ball drop live in Times Square, at a party, or at home, everyone can feel a little festive with some glam NYE nails.  

I wanted simple nails that still made a statement.  Here's what supplies I used to create my glam NYE nail look:

Black nail polish (kit of 3 minis, includes great silver glitter option!)

I began by priming all of my nails with the OPI Nail Envy treatment in Matte.  I've used this as a base coat on and off for several years and it's a great strengthening treatment for your nails.  Next, I painted all of my nails with two coats of the black nail polish.  Then, I picked one nail (my default is the ring finger) on each hand and applied two coats of glitter nail polish over the black.  Finally, I finished my nails with one layer of the OPI Nail Envy as a matte topcoat on all of the nails that were painted black, and two coats of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat over the glitter nails.  

I really like the mix of the matte black nails with the glossy glitter accents!  Warning, though, if you've never used matte nail polish before--it shows every little nick and wear is apparent much more quickly than with regular shiny nails.

Also, since the year is coming to a close, I wanted to share my favorite posts from this year!  I picked one from each month to share with you, and I'd love to hear what kind of posts you'd like to see in 2016!!!  

April: Lilly for Target Haul (spoiler: I killed it)
