NYE Mani

Hooray, Nutcracker season is over!!  My December was pretty much consumed by doing those twenty performances, so much so that I sadly only got to do one Christmas mani.  But as fun as the run was, I'm glad to be done with it for another year, and we've got a few weeks now of just rehearsals so I can actually (hopefully) have time to do some nail art again!  

Our last shows were on Decmber 30th, so of course one of the first orders of business on the 31st was doing some awesome nail art for New Year's Eve that was totally not stage-appropriate, woohoo!!

I just recently received the LaCC Fall release polishes in the mail and hadn't had time to play with them yet, so I decided to use the black 2002 as the base for my nail art.  There will be a full review of this collection up shortly, as soon as I finish swatching them all.  

For now, all you need to know is that this is just one fabulous coat of 2002!  The nail art was painted freehand with a nail art brush and Barry M Gold Foil.  I picked up that polish while I was in London because I had heard good things about painting and stamping with it; this was the first time I've tried it and let me say that I was super impressed!  I'm normally one for only freehanding with acrylic paints because I find polishes difficult to work with (especially in line work).  But this polish was so super easy to work with, it will definitely be a go-to from now on!  

It's been a long time since I've done any freehand work, especially attempted fine lines like this, so I was a bit nervous going into it.  But in the end, I was really pleased with how it turned out!  It has a bit of a Gatsby 20's vibe to it, which I'm loving the feel of!  What do you think?  :)
