New Year, New Beginnings- New Year Nail Design

Hello everyone! Happy New Year, well almost New Year! I can't believe how fast this year has gone! This year has been another big year for me, with a new career choice deciding to become a professional/ licensed nail tech, going back to school again to get licensed, passing the state board test, and then getting a job in a salon. This year has defiantly brought some big changes! In the coming year, I hope for more awesome new adventures!

Anyways today to celebrate this New Year we will be creating a new year nail design, with silver, holo silver, and black nail polish and for a pop of color adding some rainbow glitter to the design. This design can be kind of hard because we will be painting words and numbers on the nail, don't worry I do have a easier alternative that I did on my right hand.  

Happy New year 2017 Nail Design          Happy New year 2017! 

Here are the polishes and nail art tools use for this design:
Base and top coat - CND Stickey Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip top coat. 

Nail polishes- Sally Hansen- Hard as Nails- Black Heart, Sally Hansen- xtreme wear-Celeb city, Color Club Halo's- Harp on, Snowman rainbow glitter- frosty, and Color Club- Mini- Silver Glitter.

Nail art polishes- Kiss nail art polishes in black and silver.

Acrylic paint- black and white.

Nail art tools- a thin detail brush, a small dotting tool and nail art tape.

Other- a jar or cup with water in it to clean your nail art brushes, tweezers and small nail scissors, and a toothpick to place the glitter (not show in the photo above.) 

Let's start this New Year off right, with a cool nail design!

Start off with a base coat to protect your nails.
Once your base coat has dried, polish your thumb and pinky nail black, your middle and ring finger a glittery/ shimmery silver, and on your thumb a silver holographic. Also the black polish I used for this design  Sally Hansen- Hard as Nails- Black Heart is an awesome cheap black polish, that covers in one coat, the way it should be with a dark polish!

 Happy New Year design on the thumb nail.

Let's start off with the thumb nail. This part can be kind of hard, I found that if you first paint the words with white acrylic paint it makes it a little bit easier, that if you mess up you can just wipe off the paint. Once you have Happy New Year! on your nails let that dry and then if you would like, take a silver stripping polish and go over the words again. Then once that dries take a rainbow glitter and polish that on the nail to look like confetti.

 Silver Holo, black, and rainbow glitter nail design on index nail.
Next we will make the design on the index nail. First make sure the silver holo is dry, then take three strips of nail art tape and staring from the corner of the nail, place them on the nail on a slant. 
With your black thin nail art polish, fill in the top two areas that are taped off (like the photo above) and then with a regular black polish fill in the rest. I used the black stripper polish because it was easier to use a smaller brush near the top, that way you don't mess up that part with a thicker brush. 
* Make sure to peel up the tape with tweezers right away, don't wait for the polish to dry!
Then take your black stripper polish and make two thin lines in the blank areas.
After that has dried take a toothpick and place your rainbow glitter at the top corner of the design for a pop of color.

  2017 on middle and index nail 
Another hard part is writing 2017 on the middle and index nail. Once again I found that using black paint to write 2017 made it much easier. Start off with 2 and then 0 on the middle finger nail, then 1 and 7 on the ring finger nail, try to make sure that all of the numbers line up.
Once your numbers have dried, polish your rainbow glitter all over the nails so that is also looks like confetti.

 Dripping glitter on the pinky nail.

Lastly the easy part dripping sliver glitter. Take your dotting tool with the sliver glitter on it, first drag the dotting tool on the tip of the nail, then drag the glitter down the nail making some long and some short drips. You will need to re- dip your dotting tool in the silver glitter polish when making the drips.

Once your New Year design is New Years ready, or just dried apply a top coat to protect your nails and to help them last into the New Year.

Was the first design a little to hard? Here is another option that incorporates some of the first design just made more simple.
On the index nail I did the same design as the pinky nail with a silver background and silver dripping glitter.    
The middle and ring finger nail I used the nail art tape to make a simple design. You just place as many pieces of nail art tape as you would like,and starting from one corner on a slant. The middle finger nail I used four pieces and the ring finger nail I used three pieces. 

Make sure to put extra top coat over the tape to make sure it sicks to the nails. I have ran into the problem of the tape not sicking well. 

Than for an add touch just place some glitter in the corner where all the tape meets. 
The pinky nails just polish some rainbow glitter over the black.

For the thumb nail this is the same design that is created on the index nail on my left hand. The thicker black part is just in the middle and the two thin lines are on the sides.

Above is the final design that I created on my right hand, this is a great option if writing Happy New Year! 2017 is a little to hard.

Hope all of you enjoyed this party ready or just sitting at home watching the ball drop on TV design.

See you next year for more nail fun! 

The start of next year I have a collection that I am super excited to share with all of you, it is a collection based on one of my favorite movies, and of course a lot more fun nail art that we can try together or you can just look at and enjoy!     

Have a fun and safe New Year 2017!
