Happy New Year!

Happy New Year lovelies!

Welcome to my first post of 2013. Did you all have a wonderful New Years Eve? Mr LiPP and I decided to stay in and I am pretty glad we did - many of our neighbours had fireworks displays and our little Lily is terrified of the loud noises. We spent most of the evening making sure she was ok and trying to keep her calm.

I wanted my first manicure of 2013 to feature a special polish so there was no doubt in my mind that I would turn to Orly Miss Conduct.

I started with two coats of Orly Miss Conduct from the Naughty or Nice collection. Miss Conduct is a raspberry pink base packed with sparkly holo shimmers. The formula is amazing and this is easily going to become a firm favourite for me. Check out the beautiful swatches below.

For my finished manicure I swapped my index finger to W7 Black for a little contrast. I then added star shaped rhinestones and tiny silver studs to my index and little fingers as you can see below.

Using Barry M Silver Foil I stamped this pretty star image from Cheeky plate CH 52.

I loved the final results but in all honesty I would have worn Miss Conduct on its own with no stamping or accents and still have been 100% happy :-).

I thought I would also share with you the manicures I painted for Mr LiPP's Mum and Little Sister on New Years Eve...

Check out the matching blingy accent nails :-).

I hope you enjoyed my first post of 2013.

Wishing you all lots of love, luck and happiness
