40 Great Nail Art Ideas - New Year

The prompt for this week is New Year. In the North East of Scotland when things get cold, a lot of the celebrations seem to involve setting things on fire.  New Year, is no exception.  In a village called Burghead on the Moray coast there is a tradition called 'Burning of the Clavie' which happens on 11 January (New Year on the Julian calendar).  More information can be found here: http://www.burghead.com/clavie/

This is what I have based my design on for this prompt.

More details after the jump.

I started with a base of Orly Liquid Vinyl.  Over this I added Spa Rituals Intention and Fire and China Glaze Bring on the Bubbly.  I coated all this with China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat.

Next on my ring finger I painted a coat of nail foil adhesive. Once this had set I applied gold and red foil, then covered this with foil varnish. I then painted on the Clavie with black acrylic paint and coated this with Beauty Secrets Gold glitter top coat.
