NYE Nails: Dip It!

New Years Eve festivities are calling and it's your last chance to whip out the sparkly polishes for another year! So this is the look I'm rocking this year. I've seen it all over the place lately, including on the new Nails Inc adverts where it looks ah-mazing! So naturally I've been desperate to try it and here we go! 

It's pretty much a waterfall, dip-dyed glitter effect from the top of the nail, giving a really nice graduated effect. I've given it a twist and used my strandy glitter polish rather than a simple glitter which gives a slightly less gradual and more 'rain shower' effect I think – either way I'm super chuffed with the results!

Surprise surprise with the polishes I've used on this one – OPI My Very First Knockwurst and Topshop Costume Ball (I really need to stop going on about these) – but you could use whatever colours or glitter type you want. You can either drag the glitter down the nail making it more condensed or the top, or build up layers from the middle of the nail and each time go over less and less of the nail – whatever works for you really!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!
