Hello, 2014: Shirley Ann Nail Lacquer When the Ball Drops

Hey everybody!  Well, this is it...the Grand Finale of 2013.  My head still thinks it's June or something.  My year went by so quickly...I *hear* that happens as you get older. :P  I have the perfect polish for ringing in the new year: When the Ball Drops by fabulous indie brand Shirley Ann Nail Lacquer.


Mmmmmm...just look at that deliciousness!  Blue, pink, and gold holo glitter as far as the eye can see!  It's fantastic!  This stuff practically screams "Dick Clark"! :D  Oh, okay...not Dick Clark...how about party food and streamers??


See all the photographic mess surrounding the glitters?  My camera, which is usually so well-behaved, was losing its composure whilst trying to capture this sparkly work of art.  I layered When the Ball Drops over black to showcase all the colors clearly (I use the word "clearly" loosely).  For those of you who like your glitter on its own, When the Ball Drops is full coverage in 2 coats.


I really am rather embarrassed at the smudgy glitter shots.  I tried and tried, but this crazy glitter burst forth into reflective madness every time! :D  I couldn't even get a proper bottle shot.  Seriously.

Baby, you're a firework.

Don't you love a super-sparkly glitter polish for a fun occasion?  Shirley Ann Nail Lacquers can be purchased on Etsy.  And AHHHH...if you hurry...and by "hurry", I mean get over there right NOW, Cherish is having a 25% off sale (on top of her already crazy low prices) until tomorrow, 1/1/14.  Use code BEMERRY25 and be prepared to fall in love with some gorgeous stuff! 

And now the time has come to reflect on the year that was 2013...quite honestly, it's been one of my more challenging ones.  But there is a promise from God that is perfect to remember at the beginning of a new year..."Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails." Proverbs 19:21

Thanks for reading in 2013, and have a lovely and safe New Year's Eve! <3

  5. Bye Bye 2013, welcome 2014! When walking over some rough patches last year, I found consolation in a saying a British IG friend posted "the comfort Zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there". One thing I hope will grow even more is our wonderful Blogger friendship! So, done with mushy statements: my camera goes bonkers over so much sparkiliciousness too. I love your Choice of glitter and I also like them worn over black best! xxx
