NYE Matching Manis!

I'm in a few facebook groups for nail polish and just recently saw a gorgeous ruffian style glitter mani done by Christine. I wanted to try it, so I asked her how to do it. She not only told me how but offered to do matching NYE manis!

I jumped at the chance and I'm so thankful she was willing to teach me! We used facebook messenger and it was so much fun!!
She suggested a gold glitter / purple combo so we checked our stash and found that we had a couple of Zoyas that were pretty similar. Today, the fun began! We messaged back and forth as we prepped with base coat, wrapping tips and then it went quiet while we did the base colors. Serious Business!

Pretty similar colors yeah? :D

Christine taught me to wrap the tips before ya paint! It works so much better that way! She also taught me how to dab on the glitter for the ruffian portion of the mani. We used Lynnderella Golden Rules and it is such a gorgeous holo bomb of glitter! It looks like jewels, so sparkly and pretty! Just lookatit!!

Christine's nails are so super perfectly shaped and her clean up skills -- MAD!! I say!
Christine has an instagram account at christinehk - go follow! She has gorgeous manis and a beautiful set of wheels!!

A lot of firsts were had here for me:
1. My first matching mani
2. My first time to do a mani real time online!
3. My first in the ruffian style!
4. My first friend in the fb group! :)

Thank you so much Christine!! :D I enjoyed every minute of it! These photos are for you. Thanks so much!
