The 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge: Day Twelve - New Years

It's the final challenge! YAY!

I wanted a sparkly mani for NYE but somehow it just didn't happen. I brought a bunch of polishes in different shades of grey and was thinking to do some monochromatic leopard prints skittlettes but instead ended up with this manicure after a vote by a friend.

I was really hesitant at first as it really looked quite complicating. But after a few deep breaths I bit the bullet and went to town with my dotting tool. I was done with my left hand from base coat to top coat in just 15 minutes! My right hand, well, that took almost 30 minutes. Not too bad considering though.

I used all Cult Nails polishes - Blackout and Faded. Probably not my best choice as Blackout was not as opaque as I thought it would be. I contemplated if I should add a holo top coat but went against it as I was afraid that it would cover up everything!

Ahhh.. I am finally done with this nail art challnge. As much as I was sometimes frantically trying to complete the challenges I really did enjoy it. I am looking forward for more of these challenges in the coming year! Hopefully I can find similar challenges all year through!

Oh ya, happy new year by the way! :D
