    Add some shimmer to your 2015 with this cute nail design created by Jennifer Hanson (student from La’ James International College – Cedar Rapids).

    Step 1: Begin with a clean, blank nail.

    Step 2: Apply 2 coats of a silver polish. We chose CND Chrome Vinylux. Allow the nail to completely dry.

    Step 3: Once the silver polish has dried completely, apply 1 thin layer of black polish. The color we chose was CND Black Pool Vinylux. Let the color set for at least 60 seconds.

    Step 4: Using a petite dotting tool, etch a plus sign revealing the silver polish underneath.

    Step 5: Next, etch an “X” through the center of your plus sign to form a twinkling star.

    Step 6: Repeat steps 4 & 5 creating randomly placed stars. Etching must be done before the black polish dries, so remember to move rather quickly.

    Step 7: With your dotting tool, add small dots in between the twinkling stars. Once all your etching is done, allow the nail to completely dry.

    Step 8: Apply a thin layer of top coat. We went with the CND Vinylux Top Coat. To add a little extra shimmer, place a rhinestone in the center of one star.

    These nails are sure to grab all the attention during your New Year festivities! Have fun!
