Happy New Year lovelies! It's officially 2014 and I am really hopeful that this year will be markedly better than 2013. I've had some pretty rough times in my life, but 2013 was by far the worst year on record. Everything that could possibly go wrong did! Sure, there were some high point, but mostly 2013 was a very low year for me. Here's to 2014 being a fabulous year for us all!

Christmas was awesome though! Even though my car decided to blow the Master Cylinder on Xmas day. Marleigh was already improving on Xmas day (she's still improving although she does have a mass in her bladder, which is not good), my kids were both happy and playful, and we all had a blast with my family. It was wonderful to see my mom smiling and looking forward to the future.

I also took a week of from posting since my nails were dry and cranky. They needed some TLC, and since I had a lot to do, I figured it was a good time to baby them. I'm sure you all didn't miss me since you were probably busy with your own Holiday fun!

Don't forget that today is the last day to enter the Giveaway! 3 prizes are up for grabs! Click here to go to the entry post! I have my NYE manicure to share with you. I wanted something sparkly yet simple, so I decided to do a black and gold mani. I started with 2 coats of A-England Camelot, my favorite black creme ever. Then I used A-England Holy Grail and some saran wrap to create a marbled effect. I added some gold studs, topped it all off with A-England The Shield, and voila! Sparkly NYE Nails!

I love this way more than I thought I would! This is my first attempt at a Saran Wrap marble, and it was so easy! I have no idea who first came up with this idea, but they are a genius! I almost tried out Chalkboard Nails distressed black and gold, but decided that Saran Wrap would probably be faster. :)

Of course, I had to bust out some A-England's for NYE. I really need to wear my untried A-Englands ASAP. One of my rewards for not being stupid and using my nails as tools (and therefore keeping some length on my left hand) is A-England pretties. I have a few I've been saving until I got some decent length, and I think it's about time to bust those babies out!

A-England is my very fave brand of all time - if you don't own any, you are missing out on big time! You can find A-England at Llarowe, or if you're in the UK you can head right to A-England's web site.  Adina is a true nail polish genius, and her beautiful cremes, shimmers, and holos are a must have.

What did you wear on your nails for New Years?

I have swatches coming up this week, as well as a look at Nails HQ Magazine, so be sure to check back!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!!!!
