3…2…1…

31 Dec

Happy New Year!!!  According to my ring finger, it’s almost midnight. :)  Will you be going to any crazy New Year’s Eve parties?  I’m not much of a partier myself.  I’ll probably be falling asleep on the couch and go to bed about 12:01.  When I was little I remember being at Grandma and Grandpa’s house for New Years and running outside banging pots and pans as soon as the clock struck 12:00.

Then there was the year when I was 17 I think and went to my city’s downtown celebration with a couple friends.  A couple minutes before midnight I happened to run in to a guy from school who had made it no secret that he had had a crush in me since freshman year.  I considered him a good friend, but didn’t return the mushy feelings (yet, he eventually grew on me.  Nevermind that it took almost 4 years.)  Anyway, he ditched his friends and was hanging out really close to me as midnight approached.  I was really nervous he was going to try to kiss me so I hung close to my friend.  He either got the point or chickened out.  Whatever the reason, I was relieved.

Being that I don’t have any super exciting parties to go to, I stuck with a simple nail design as well.    My base color is OPI DS Magic, which I just happened to be wearing anyway.  I used OPI DS Radiance for my streamers and OPI Rainbow Connection for the confetti. For the clock I used China Glaze White on White and Nina Ultra Pro Punki Purple and a fine point Sharpie for the clock face.  This is the first time I’ve ever tried a Sharpie on my nails.  I learned you need to wait for your polish to be completely dry first.  I wish it was a bit darker and more opaque, but am happy with the ease of use.

Happy 2012 everyone!

    Love the clock!!! As always, beautiful art work. Your nails look like a “happening” party all by themselves.
