China Glaze Some Like It Haute Glitter Ulta Metallico Metallic Mania

Happy New Year everyone! I want to sincerely thank you all so much for reading my blog because getting to know you all has been the greatest reward of this entire experience. I hope this year brings you much love, health, happiness, peace, and joy.

I rang in the new year {and my birthday today} with my first accent nail ever! I shared this mani on Twitter and Instagram and my buds were shocked that, of all the manicures I’ve done, this was my first accent nail lol.

I decided to go for a rockstar manicure this New Years Eve with pewter nails and a disco ball accent finger. I picked up the Metallico set from ULTA and was so disappointed with the Metallic Mania dark pewter polish. It is the goopiest, streakiest metallic nail polish EVER!!! In one stroke, I had bald streaks next to thick goopey puddles! This manicure involved quite a bit of cussing and I had to redo a couple of nails. Metallico is a 5-piece mini set including 4 metallic polishes and a clear top coat, and I’m hoping the other colors are less streaky. I was able to even it out a bit with my Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

I had a much better experience with my China Glaze Some Like It Haute accent nail. This polish has a pewter shimmer base with flecks of hot pink, silver, green, yellow, and purple glitter. I used 3 coats to get it fully opaque and it really looks like a shimmering disco ball when the light hits it. I’m also wearing my favorite new JewelMint piece, Unlock Love, a sterling silver 2-piece ring set from JewelMint’s Prestige collection. I had to cash in 3 credits for it, but I’m so happy I did. I thought the edgy style of this ring went perfectly with my pewter manicure and picked up on the silver flecks of glitter in my accent nail.

What do you all think of this manicure? Is this something you would try?

Update: I just went to Tweet this post, and not only am I mani twins with The Average Girl’s Guide, but she Tweeted a link to her manicure at the same exact time lol. Loving her resolutions!
