I went with a base of OPI Miss You-Niverse, which is a gorgeous dark eggplant creme that I reviewed here. Then, I took Essie Good As Gold and with just a tiny bit of polish on the brush, swiped it upwards from the tip of my nails. Doing this also left little flecks on the rest of the nail, which are barely visible in the photos but had a nice effect in the light.
This is a great, elegant style to wear, especially for New Year's! And, it's so easy to do. I can't wait to try this style with other color combinations.
What are your plans for the new year? Any resolutions?
