Happy New Year! Glitterific Old English Manicure

Allo polish Pals,
Happy New Year to you all! I'm wishing you all just the best year ever, I hope it is everything you hope it to be. How did you all celebrate landing in 2014? I really had quite a quiet night but that's just fine with me since I am with all my loved ones. Today's also really special because my sister and baby Albie will be coming home from hospital :) While I have some nail art to show you I also wanted to share some things from 2013 and for 2014.

Serious Glittatude with Southern Lights. Click to Enlarge!

On all my nails I started with two coats of Fearne's (from a collection I received at Christmas) 'High Tide'. On top of this I layered Model's Own 'Southern Lights' in around three coats to get a full glitter coverage. I then took some black acrylic paint and attempted to paint on '2014' in Old English font. I regret the lettering isn't great; I really wish I had some more brushes with me!

How was 2013? I have to say it probably was the best year of my life so far with so many life changing things happening. Of course I made the big move from the UK to Holland, I get to live with my best friend and partner. I met a lot of people both online and offline ~ This includes the wonderful beautiful friends I have made through blogging. I attended a wedding. My dad is in very good health now. I have a new nephew. I'm convinced that 2014 can only get better and I have idea's to help that along.

Resolutions I never admitted it on here but I did smoke... And now I don't! I started cutting down before me and Mr Bravo returned to England and now its totally quits.
A big thing I need to do is to love myself a little more in 2014. I don't know how it started or how it happened but over the last year I have just neglected the things I used to really take pride in. I don't wear make up much any more and its little things like applying lotion after a shower... I'd also go as far to say that my consideration to what goes in my body has differed. I love eating healthy and I'll be working hard to shift the extra padding I have acquired. I blame love, love is comfortable, hah!

How was your 2013, Have you made some resolutions to yourself?
Enjoy the rest of new years day!
