Polish and Melanin | Cheers to the New Year

IMG_5080.JPG

The count down as begun. Every year thousands of people raise a glass of champagne to cheer the end of one year and the beginning of another. The mood of New Year’s is expectant, things are about to change and hopefully for the better. If you thought Christmas was about the glitter and shimmer, I feel like New Year’s is about the bling. These polishes are meant to make a statement, as the year ends with a bang so will your nails. New Year’s is the big sister to Christmas it’s  a bit moodier and more dramatic but they share the same desire to shine.

These polishes aren’t necessarily the traditional picks for New Year’s but I do think that they would pair great with many New Year’s Eve outfits.
