Happy New Year!
I usually don't make resolutions because, well, I know I'll break them. So this year I am making some blogging resolutions that I know I can keep!
1) I will take better pictures. I have a great camera, but I don't fully understand how to use all the features. To remedy this, I'm taking a class on the second that is being offered by an amazing local photographer by the name of Craig Gum. He has helped me with some white balance issues in the past, and I'm super stoked to have the opportunity to pick his brain some more. Check out his use of light! (Disclaimer: some of his work includes tasteful nudity)
2) I will try new techniques and do more video tutorials. I experimented outside of my comfort zone in 2013 and picked up a few new techniques, but I really plan to test the limits in 2014.
3) I have been supported over the past few months by some incredible bloggers in the nail community. In 2014, I will do one manicure a month that is inspired by another blogger - and attempt to do techniques with gel that are usually done with RNP.
4) I will post more than one shot of each manicure to better show the colors and art.
Ok, ok...enough about my blogging resolutions. Want to see my New Years mani? I thought you might.
LeChat Mood Frozen Cold Spell. I swatched it previously in this post. I then stamped them with Color Club Harp On It using images from Pueen 44 (ring finger) and Dashica XL sdp-8. Stars aren't usually my thing, but I love the effect of the holographic stars over the thermal polish.
Here are a few more shots.
I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve/Day and wish you the best year in 2014!
