Huginn & Muninn is a purple based polish that shifts from purple to blue to green to purple-red to a green-gold. It’s so purty!

New Year’s Eve Nails with ILNP, ellagee, CrowsToes, and China Glaze

Purchased by Me buttonHappy New Year’s Eve everyone! Who else is excited for 2016 to be over? I mean, it’s been a crazy year in the world, but I know that personally it was a pretty good year. But still, I’m ready for a new year and exciting things (like a baby, hopefully soon!). I decided to do some sparkly nails for NYE, based on a mani I saw by BreezytheNailPolishLover on Facebook. I’ve used ILNP I See You, ellagee My Sweet Romantic Teenage Nights, CrowsToes Nail Color Maxxed Out, and China Glaze Golden Enchantment.

ILNP I See You is a creamy champagne holographic polish.

Formula is fairly sheer, but it has a really nice holo flame without top coat. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

I then used ellagee My Sweet Romantic Teenage Nights for a half-moon manicure. This is one of my older indie polishes, and it still performs great! It is also the blackest holographic polish I own (I believe).

Over MSRTN, I first used CrowsToes Nail Color Maxxed Out in a waterfall pattern, then China Glaze Golden Enchantment (which is a clear base with holographic specks).

You can tell my half-moons changed. Well, I wasn’t happy with them so I tried to make them deeper and they ended up looking like cat heads. Sigh. I try to do one simple mani and they end up looking strange. LOL. Now that I’ve seen cat heads, I can’t stop seeing them, either!

Anyway, I hope you have a safe & fun New Year’s Eve – our crew will be at home celebrating. May 2017 hold nothing but the best for you & yours!

First I have Your Last Breath, described as a “delicate cornflower blue base with a softened linear holo to match. There is just a touch of pale green shimmer and a bit of gold micro flake peeking out here and there.

It has this really pretty golden shimmer that was hard to capture on camera. It honestly reminds me a bit of blue satin that’s placed in coffins. Eeep! Continue reading
