New Years Eve Nails - Julep Ivy and NYC Starry SIlver Glitter

I got a new computer!!!
It has Windows 8.  Guys, I feel so old trying to use this thing.  SO confusing.
Anywho, without further ado, here are my New Years nails!
*Polishes used: Julep "Ivy" (One of my favorites from them), and NYC "Starry Silver Glitter"

Excuse my nubbies, I worked this weekend and it TOTALLY killed them =(

I hope you all have a very Merry New Year! 
xoxo- Emily =)

Comparison: Julep "Harper" and Sinful Colors "Nail Junkie"

I am in love with these two polishes!

I bought Nail Junkie a while ago.  Harper came with my December Julep Maven box.  When I saw it I was in love!

And then I was like...wait a second.  I have definitely seen this before.

The difference?  Nail Junkie is just a HAIR darker.  All nails are three coats with 1 coat Seche Vite.  Any guesses as to which is which?

Pointer and ring are Harper.
Middle and pinky are Nail Junkie.

What do you guys think?

Cupcake nails tutorial!

I love cupcake nails.  Perfect for Birthdays!

Step#1:  Paint your nails your choice of color.  I did two different colors.

Step#2:  Draw a line dividing your "icing" and wrapper.

Step#3:  Paint the bottom half if your cupcake the color of your wrapper.  I chose brown but you could use any color.

Step#4: Using a dotting tool (or bobby pin, bottom of paint/makeup, whatever you can get your hands on.), make your icing hang over the edge of the wrapper by dotting the icing color on the dividing line.

Step#5: Give your wrapper some definition by highlighting the "crinkles."  I used silver.

Step#6: Give that cupcake some sprinkles!

There you go!  For my other nails I did streamers and a birthday present.

Polishes used:
Sally Hansen: Fuschia Bling Bling.
Sally Hansen Instadri: Lively Lilac.
Stripe Rite: Silver.
Nail Art by Diamond Cosmetics: Cocoa.
Klean color Nail Art:  Sky Blue.
