Christmas surprises! (2) and a happy new year

I hope you all had a most wonderful New Years! It's certainly one the best times for getting together with friends and family. In my neighborhood, the kids bang pots and pans in the street and pop small firecrackers at 12 o'clock. I always feel sorry for those who try to get some rest on New Years Eve because I'm sure it's quite impossible xD.

It's always been fascinating to see how other countries celebrate this holiday, I know many places experience New Years hours before the U.S does ! It's so wonderful that everyone in the world can celebrate the new year together .

For Christmas, a friend of mine hand picked a collection of nail polish and chose a color for every holiday of the year so that I would always have a festive color for each season. Of course, the first color she picked was Gold for New Years eve.

I can't think of a holiday with more sparkles, glitter and shine that New Years Eve. From the sparkling shampagne to the shiny confetti, from the fireworks that light the sky above to the evening parties that shine through the streets below, the whole world seems to have a golden glow. And my fingenails are no exception!

Gold is actually very versatile and very forgiving as a nail polish. I would suggest it for all skin tones and all outfits because it seem s to go well with every color!

Gold with navy blue or bronze

Gold with teal

Gold with burgundy

Of course I suggest adding a little sparkle with accessories in order to enhance the color of your nails ( hence the gold chain in some of these pics)

Here's to a happy new year to come!
