Maybelline - Cocktail Dress

Hi everyone!!  Happy New Year!!  I still can't believe 2013 is here!  Can you?

Since it's Twinsie Tuesday, we were given the task of posting a New Year inspired manicure.  I decided to go with one of the Maybelline Sequins polishes that was released a few months ago.  Cocktail Dress is a sheer black base with small red hex glitter and what looks like silver microglitter.  It's opaque in two coats, but dries to a gritty finish.  Here I applied two coats and added Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

This polish is so stunning!!  I love the combo of black and red!  I chose it because of the name, a cocktail dress is typical for celebrating the New Year.  Also, this polish looks very festive.  So beautiful!

I'm looking forward to seeing what New Year inspired manis my twinsies came up with.  Don't forget to check them out!
