Happy New Year!!! Simple and Luminous NYE Nails

Only a few hours left till 2012!

I wanted to do something a little less glittery and a little bit more chic and subtle for the new year. This is also a super easy way to incorporate some pizzaz to your regular polish routine. I really like the luxeffects polishes! I’m going to swatch and do a review on them soon! This look features a simple but fun gradient effect which was achieved with the help of Essie’s luxeffects shine of the times polish.

All I used for this look is two Essie polishes (outside base coat and top coat):

1. Essie Winter 2011 Collection Power Clutch 

2. Essie Luxeffects Shine of the Times

** To achieve the gradient effect just focus the luxeffects polish on the bottom half of the nail. It’s easier to get a gradient effect if you do one lighter coat first over a larger area, then do a second coat just on the tip of the nail for more concentrated sparkle.**
