The Nail Files - New Year's Eve/Day Mani

 photo newbutton_zps284b4cd7.jpg

I did these Tuesday, New Years Eve, while I binge-watched Downton Abbey. Aside from running the dishwasher and cooking dinner, doing my nails was the only thing I did all day while sitting on the couch with one of my favorite British shows. And, since I was having a lazy day, I kept it simple:

Julep's Claire under Sinful Color's Ice Dream.

Before settling on Claire, I actually had four different blues on four fingers trying to decide the right shade to go under Ice Dream (from my Christmas haul). I think Claire was a perfect choice. Ice Dream went on very well. It's a clear polish with tiny silver glitter and larger blue flakes. The picture doesn't do the silver justice, but you can kind of see it there. And it has nice coverage, for a glitter polish.

Now, come join the rest of nail polish junkies and show off your manicure from the week!

Happy Friday, dolls!


  1. Love Claire, had to check my inventory to see if I have it and I don't! I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

  2. Pretty. I've never seen Downton Abbey, but have heard lots about it.

  3. I like how you layered the polishes. Looks great!

  4. This is a really nice combo! And I've also been binge-watching Downton Abbey lately ;)

  5. Very pretty! I've heard a lot of mention of Downton Abbey (which I only just realized ISN'T 'Downtown' lmao. You'd think after all the times I've seen it, I would have noticed that. haha) Anyways, maybe I should check it out since it seems to be such a big hit. What other British shows do you watch? I enjoy Sherlock and Atlantis. I think those are the only ones. British shows seem to be quite popular though. :)

  6. I love that you were so serious with your polish selection process! And it worked out perfectly because your nails are fab!! Yay for sparkly blue! *high five*

  7. Oh!! I loooooooove that color combination! And I swear this year was the year for "doing nothing" on NYE! The hubs and I also had a really lazy day and binge watched netflix and it was perfect!!
