Black, White and Silver Bling Nails for New Years

I haven't been in much of a holiday mood when it comes to my nails, but New Year's is a theme I can definitely get down with. Blingy and dramatic are what I think of when NYE rolls around and this black, white and silver combo will add that extra pop to a dressy outfit. I had seen a manicure in one of my facebook nail polish groups which had these pretty white 3D bows and I decided I had to incorporate them somehow into my NYE nails. Working around the bows, I arrived at this extra sparkly look.

I used a few different polishes to achieve this, the black is China Glaze Liquid Leather, the white is China Glaze White on White, the silver holo is Orly Mirrorball (my favourite silver polish to date!) and the glitter is OPI I Snow You Love Me, which I fished out and placed on the nail. CG Liquid Leather and ORLY Mirrorball have to be two of the best polishes I've used lately.The are both gorgeous and go on beautifully. The bows I got in a Secret Santa swap. but you can easily find them on ebay. They are so cute, I want AAALLL the colours. I usually use super glue to put them on, as nail glue doesn't quite cut it for staying power, whereas super glue usually stays on well until I remove them with acetone.

I'm in love with my nails right now! They are the perfect mix of elegant B&W and sparkle. The Mirrorball + I Snow You Love Me glitters are so ridiculously blingy that I catch myself just staring at them all the time. This is a simple design, but I think it works really well. Other than the black and white theme, the little rhinestone in the bow complements the silver sparkly nails perfectly.

I don't have any big plans for NYE, we'll probably just watch the countdown on tv and have some drinks, but I can still get festive with my nails! What are your plans/nails looking like for NYE?

Beauty Box 5 December Subscription Box Review

Just wanted to do a quick post on the December Beauty Box 5! It's a fun one, with pretty polish and some yummy scented stuff.

He are my thoughts on a few of the products in this month's box:

I love the Lucky Number 6 perfume, it's a really nice floral scent which isn't too heavy. I've been thinking about getting a new perfume so this came at a perfect time. I can use it for a while and see if I like it enough to buy a full size one :) The Nanacoco nail polish is going to be my new years manicure, it's a colourful, festive glitterbomb. Having a little tub of nail polish remover wipes is perfect for when you're out and a nail chips, no more putting up with ugly chipped nails until you can make it home! It's in peach scent and is acetone free which means it's gentler on your skin. Lastly, the facial mist in "Rose Bouquet" smells sooooo pretty. I adore rose water and it is definitely nice to have some extra hydration in the dry winter months.

This month's box is a winner for me, I absolutely love all the gorgeous scents and of course the nail stuff.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas if you celebrate and happy holidays to everyone else!
