This manicure was quickly done about 15 minutes before the stroke of midnight. I couldn’t let the new year creep up on me, without having a fresh new mani. However in my haste, I didn’t have much time for cleanup and I apologize about that. My friends were literally shoving champagne glasses into my hands as the top coat was drying. For extra added bling, I used some rhinestones that I had with the For Rhinestones Only topcoat. It has a thicker consistency and helps the rhinestones to adhere better than regular top coats.

Here is my manicure getting into the fireworks action. The view is from my office building in the heart of Times Square. It was breathtaking.


Here is a close up.


Happy New Year! Cheers to festive manicures.
