This mani was super easy to do especially when the mark. Nailed It Gift Set ($12) comes with 3 out of the 4 products needed.  Start with the base coat, follow it with 2 coats of the metallic gold.  Next, after the gold has dried for about 2-5 minutes, dab on the the Avon Dazzlers in Disco Ball to the tips to recreate the bubbles in the champaign.  Finally add a layer of top coat from the Nailed It Gift Set.

I used Avon 7 in 1 Gel Mani polish in Inked Up topped with Essie Jubilant Jubilee!  On my thumb I painted on a 2015 but it turned out sub par.  What’s great about the Avon Gel polish is that you don’t need a base or topcoat it’s smooth and shiny on it’s own!  And I only used one coat!

Holiday Styling Tips: New Years Eve

Holiday Styling Tips:  New Year's Eve

Holiday Styling Tips: New Year’s Eve

If Christmas is only 9 days away that mean’s that New Years Eve is only in 17 days!  Time to start making plans and more importantly, what are you going to wear!?!  I feel New Year’s is one of those events that seem to always disappoint, but I also figured out there’s a few things to plan for that make it work out.  First is who you’re with, plan to spend it with good friends and/or family.  That way, doesn’t matter what you do, you’ll for sure have a fun night.  Secondly, is plan a special outfit.  You know if you at least dress up a little, then the night automatically feels special!  Jill from My Sweet Obsessions and I have few tips to help with that last part, styling a New Years Eve outfit that will have you covered no matter if it’s for a night in or a night out!

What To Wear For New Years Eve

What To Wear For New Years Eve

1.  Pick A Party Dress!

mark. Grand Entrance Lace Dress

mark. Grand Entrance Lace Dress

This is THE opportunity to wear a party dress.  Even if you’re not a dress wearer, on New Years, you can be.   Most of us in real life don’t have too many occasions to dress up, so take the chance.  Even if your event isn’t something crazy, this is the night that being overdressed is completely acceptable.  My party dress pick is the mark. Grand Entrance Dress ($44).  With it’s fitted lace bodice and satin tulip skirt it’s a party perfect pick!

2.  Keep It Comfortable.

Comfortable in the mark. Grand Entrance Dress

You’re in for a long night and being super uncomfortable in an outfit you can’t move in and heels you can’t walk in just makes for a miserable NYE.  Pick a dress you can move, and dance, and sit in… and maybe one that hides the few pounds of Christmas cookies I’ve been eating.  That’s what I love about this mark. Grand Entrance Dress, it’s cut to flatter and be functional.  The waist is a litter higher hitting that sweet spot that’s the small part of our torso.  The tulip skirt allows you to move and prance, so you’ll be good with whatever comes your way… chasing kids to dance floor moves.

 

3.  Pile on the sparkle.

 Last week’s tips on how to wear sparkles weren’t for a one time thing, you’ll definitely need them for NYE.  Again if there’s ever a time to go all out it’s NYE, and no one will judge you for it, believe me.  So bust out the sequin clutch (or again for me, last seen here.)  Pull out some statement earrings like these mark. Noir Essence Earrings, and stack on an arm party (kate spade bracelets).  Don’t forget the shoes!  I love the mark. Opulent Charm Heels so much from last week I had to bring them back.  They’re PERFECT for a party dress and NYE with their embellished detailing.  Plus they’re very comfortable and walkable, so the fit style tip #2 above.

 

4.  Amp Up Your Makeup.

Smokey Eye and Bold Lip for NYE

NYE is the BEST time for a smokey eye and bold lip!  Spend a little extra time getting ready and pull out some of the best tricks like a smokey eye.  Key is sticking with formulas that will last all night.  mark. On The Dot Smokey ($18) and mark. On The Edge Eyeliner ($10) are top notch formulas.  Try a bold pink lip for a different look then that bold red you’ve been wearing.  Try Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick in Fearless Fuchsia.

5.  Have Fun!

Fun With The Pups!

Fun With The Pups!

The biggest tip for NYE is to have fun!  Pick something fun to wear, pair it with fun accessories and make the most of your night.  It’s all about stepping out of your norm and being a little extra-special just for one night.  It’s the last night of the year, go out with a bang!  You can shop my dress, earrings, shoes and makeup at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Holiday Hangover

Time to take down the tree, turn off the twinkling lights and say goodbye to another year.  I’m in a bit of a holiday hangover, I don’t want it to be over.  I enjoyed the prepping, the festivities, the family and fun!  Since I’m not quite over Christmas vacation or ready to deal with reality and responsibility I thought I might as well relive it and share my holiday mani’s!

Red and White Argyle

Red and White Argyle

Come Christmas Eve I was so busy wrapping and prepping I still had my leftover holiday party nails, which were def chipping.  So I quickly did this!  In retrospect I wish I would of allowed myself more time and more creativity but c’est la vie!  I knew I wanted red so I used OPI The Spy Who Loved Me from the fall/holiday Bond collection.  I then used Konad White to stamp the argyle print from plate m60.  It was quick and somewhat messy but it was holiday-tastic!

Speaking of those leftover holiday party nails for the office party and annual Nutcracker outing I used Essie Beyond Cozy and China Glaze Winter Holly on my ring and thumb.  Again, I was pressed for time and these were opaque in one thick coat and super short dry time.  Essie’s Beyond Cozy I already knew was going to be a holiday lifesaver, check out quick and easy party hair and nails to see why!

Then came that week in between Christmas and New Years where I was SUPER lazy!  Luckily I was gifted and OPI mini set so I did a simple shimmery red with an accent nail in China Glaze Glitter All The Way.  I would of left this on for new years but I found myself with some extra time on my hands and my sister gifted me the Ciate Sequin Nails Kit so I thought… if there’s ever a time for full on sequin nails, its NYE!

Ciate Sequin Nails

Ciate Sequin Nails

The Ciate set was pretty quick and easy to use.  They provide you with Ciate Sequin Glitter Grip that you use as a base and top coat basically.  First do 2 coats of the grip letting the first coat dry completely and immediately after the second when its still wet dip your nail in the “sequin” (aka glitter).  The dip coats the nail pretty well then just pat it down with your finger and follow with another coat of Sequin Glitter Grip.  They also provided a little brush to sweep off the extra glitter but I found it unnecessary.  I just used my fingers as I was patting down the glitter.

I was pretty pleased with how they turned out, perfectly matched my sequined leggings for my NYE look!  As the night went on some of the sequin def came off especially against my satin lined clutch every time I reached in there.  Maybe a couple extra coats of top coat would of helped.  I got decently annoyed of them the next day and manually chipped it off most my nails purposely leaving an accent nail haha.  The set is great for a special night out or event and the kit gives you PLENTY to do this again and again.

Nothing completes a holiday manicure like some bling!  The rings and bracelets are all mark. which you can find on my eboutique at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com.  This holiday season I wore those Sparks Fly Bracelets and Just Your Luxe Ring to death!  They just matched everything and gave just the right amount of festive!  Hope you had a fantastic holiday and are having better luck jump back into reality!
