Happy New Year!!!
For my New Year's manicure, I decided to do my left hand as 2014 themed, and my right hand as 2015 themed. My left hand is the five most Googled things of 2014. My pinkie is Flappy Bird, the 5th most Googled thing. My ring finger is the logo for Malaysia Airlines. My middle finger is an Ebola germ (and I thought the placement ended up pretty funny...) My index finger is the logo for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
My thumb is "Jumanji" because the most Googled thing of 2014 was Robin Williams! One of my very favorite movies growing up was Jumanji, and according to my mom I watched it "at least 100 times." Since I didn't feel like doing a portrait of Robin Williams, I decided to make a tribute to Jumanji and Mr. Williams' work.
I wasn't able to get a picture of this one before I wrecked it cooking for my New Year's party, so we'll just pretend it's still pristine! Before it was ruined there were all 6 dice on it.
I used my right hand to welcome in the new year, and what better way to do that than glitter!
My base is a black holographic polish I mixed and named "Nova." I used OPI "In True Steffani Fashion" to do a glitter gradient on the tip, and the numbers are done in OPI "Love.Angel.Music.Baby."
I put "Happy New Year" on my thumb this year instead of just exclamation points. Do you know how much of a pain in the butt it is to paint tiny letters left handed and upside down? It's a real pain in the butt!
Wherever you are tonight, I hope you have a happy and safe holiday, and a great 2015!!!
