New Year Eve Nails: Falling Stars!


Feeling quite inspired by stars, I created a super easy nail tutorial perfect for those who want to add a bit of glamour this New Years Eve. 
This is a perfect nail for a casual evening with friends or family, enjoying a low key night in. 


What you will need: 
You will need two polish colors plus a top coat. I have chosen a clear coat with sparkles and opted out for clear. Finally, a sheet of star shaped stickers.


Cut out your desired number of stars. 


Place your stickers as you desire, and be sure they are firmly placed on the surface of your nails. 
Any spaces, will prevent a well defined star. 


Now you are ready to paint your polish in  the areas with the exposed nail. I brushed the coat very lightly, because I wanted a washed out, natural vibe. However, if you double coat it, the intensity and clarity will increase. 


After dry, color the entire nail with one coat of a varnish that is some what transparent. This one has a pearl effect, and builds to a natural nude. Finish off with top coat and enjoy!
