Sparkle to see in the New Year

With 2013 ending tonight I thought I would give myself a mani with a bit of sparkle to see in the new year. I usually steer away from glitter polishes because the thought of getting them off makes me want to cry, but as its new year, I couldn't resist but to add a bit of glitter to my nail art! If you want to find out how I created this mosaic nail art look keep reading!

What will you need? 

For this nail art look I used nail varnish in the shades fuchsia, coral pink, mint, yellow, silver glitter and a colourful glitter. I also used a white nail art pen and a dotting tool and small nail art brush.
The nail varnish shades I used are: Illamasqua Harem, Lament and Harsh, Barry M Minty Fresh, Collection Lemon Soda and Colour Club Colourful Glitter.

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

Step 1: To begin I used a white nail art pen and mapped out the outline of the mosaic design. This made it much easier to fill in the mosaic sections.

Step 2-5: I took each colour in turn and filled in random sections on each nail using a dotting tool.

Step 6: Next I took the colourful glitter on the thin nail art brush and pushed this over the top of the white lines, spreading the glitter evenly.

Step 7: I did not feel that the colourful glitter was enough alone so next I took the fine silver glitter and added this over the top of the colourful glitter. If I was to redo this nail art I would probably complete step 6 and 7 the other way round in order to make the colourful glitter stand out more.

Step 8: Finally once all nails were dry I painted a top coat over each nail. This evened out the nails and sealed all the colours into place, as well as creating a shine over all nails.

I hope you enjoyed this nail art! Have you created any nail art for New Years Eve? I hope you all have a lovely new years eve and a fab 2014! I can't wait for what InSamazement has in store for 2014!

Until next YEAR! Samantha xx
