Happy 2014!

I'm starting out the new year with nubs.  My cracked/patched left index nail broke off completely yesterday while I was taking off polish to do a New Year's mani.  I also had two patched nails on my right hand that I was sick of dealing with, so at that point I basically said screw it, and proceeded to just chop them all down.  My nails are never a consistent length anyway, so what the hell!  And I think my New Year's design turned out pretty cute in the end with the new nubs.

I kept it pretty simple.  I've kind of felt uninspired lately so I almost didn't do a New Year's mani at all this year.  But I decided to paint my nails with Zoya Tomoko (3 thin coats).  Then after they were painted, I tried to figure out what the hell to put on them, lol.  I knew I wanted to use the champagne flutes from Winstonia plate W117.  Then I came across a circles pattern on Pueen plate 36 that reminded me of champagne bubbles, so I combined the two.

The circles pattern was stamped on every nail except my ring finger.  For the accent nail, I stamped the champagne flutes first and then stamped random parts of the circles pattern around the flutes.  Everything was stamped using Konad Special Polish in black pearl.

I do love when my nails are longer, but I'm really enjoying this length as well.  Maybe that's why I can never decide on one length to keep them at all the time.  Anyway, hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and here's to a great 2014!  Thanks for following along in 2013.  :)
