Countdown to Midnight: Leopard Sparkle

Happy 2 days after Christmas! 

I hope Santa was good to all of you! What was your favorite present? Mine has to be the black sequin UGG boots my grammy got me! But my favorite part of the day? Seeing my boyfriend almost cry from the gifts myself and my family got him because he's never had a big Christmas like we like to do. It made all of the money spent worth it. But shhhhhh don't tell anyone, he's still my manly man ;)

Now that Christmas is over though it's time to get ready to bring in the new year! I've done the first of a few New Year's themed manis to get you guys in the party mood and I've titled them 'Countdown to Midnight'. So if you have any ideas you want to show me go on instagram and tag #pinkandpolishedcountdowntomidnight and maybe I'll even feature you! 

My first design is a fun sparkly leopard french perfect for adding that extra pizzazz to any New Year's outfit! I started with a base of OPI Bubble Bath to get rid of most of the staining on my nails. Then I created the french using OPI This Gown Needs A Crown. When it was dry I created the leopard print using China Glaze Harvest Moon and outlined it with Wet'n'Wild Black Creme. Some Poshe on top and you're good to go!

I love spicing up simple manis and honestly if you add sparkle to anything I'm going to love it! 

What's your favorite way to add sparkle to your manis?
Thanks loves :)
