On Nnenna’s Nails #4: Holiday Glam

Top: Gold- Nails Inc. Lanesborough Place
Bottom: Black- BCBG Max Azria, Gold Sparkle- Forever 21 Gold Rush

For the holidays, I definitely wanted to rock some glam nails.  I bought this perfect gold nail polish using the Sephora gift card that I won months ago from Elle Sees.  I think when you have a color that fabulous, you don’t need any other embellishments on your nails!  The second picture is of the nails I did for New Year’s Eve.  The color scheme of my outfit was black and gold, so I wanted some fun sparkly nails to match!  First I taped off the top portion of my nails and painted the bottom portion black.  Then, after the black dried, I put on a light coat of clear on the tops of my nails and sprinkled gold glitter on them.  Needless to say, there was glitter everywhere for days!  For the final touch, I covered my entire nails in a gold sparkle nail polish and I think I achieved some serious sparkle! :)

Tell me: What look did you sport on your nails for NYE?
