Happy New Year!

This New Year mani was completely inspired by this one on work/play/polish. You should go check out her version because it’s beautiful!!

Here’s my version:

I have Butter London’s Slapper, but because of this post I had some new A-England polishes to try out and Galahad seemed perfect for this look!

A base coat and one coat of Galahad was the perfect base. I considered stopping at that point because the teal was so pretty!

But I forged ahead…

I topped this terrific teal with a pretty polish by e.l.f. called Golden Goddess. It has fine gold glitter and larger gold holo hex glitters in a clear base. It’s a pretty close dupe for Butter London Tart With a Heart, but the holo pieces in TWAH are smaller and seem more pastel. TWAH doesn’t feel quite as gold next to GG.

One coat of Seche Vite (pronounced “sesh veet” not “sashay” like the guy called it at Beauty Brands) finished the look. I still like my Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, but I’m a SV convert!

I love teal and gold together…probably stems from my love of turquoise jewelry.

Are your nails going to be dressed up for tonight? Leave a link in the comments, I’d love to see!
