New Years Eve aka National Getting Drunk & Covered in Glitter Day

Ahh New Years Eve, one of the only holidays where it’s acceptable to be both drunk and covered in more glitter than a 14 year old at a Taylor Swift concert. I love New Years because its just about the only time when I actually get to spend 2 hours on my hair and use all the hair gel, bobby pins and makeup I own. If I had time, I’d do this every day but since I’m not a housewife in the 1950s that’s never going to happen.

Lucky for me, I got to do another killer New Years Eve show at the Comedy Studio in Harvard Square, filled with friends, family, a fantastic audience…and booze. Lots of booze. Over all it was an awesome night!

Dress detail, sequins galore!

I’ve been stalking this dress from Modcloth for quite some time and I finally broke down and bought it. (Chi Chi London is the designer.) Aside from it’s inordinate amount of sparkles and sequins, it’s also pretty comfortable, so its great a for a long night. It gets an A+ in my book.

As you can tell I am not a manicurist, but I do like glitter.

Once every 300 years I get a chance to match my nails to my dress. This nail style wasn’t too hard to do. I started with painting my entire nail red. Then painted the gold polish over 3/4 of my nail. After it set a bit I went over the top 1/4 again with more gold. Then I finished it off it a top coat.

Honestly, I’m surprised this managed to stay up all night.

Clearly, I was still not wearing enough glitter. After I managed to pull off this nifty side roll thing I found in The Art of Hair: The Ultimate DIY Guide to Braids, Buns, Curls And More By Rubi Joneshair style book, I decided to really go for it and did glitter roots.

Glitter roots are super easy to do. You just need some craft glitter, whatever gel you usually use and a haircolor brush. A small detail brush is best, but you can use anything. Just dump a bunch of glitter in the gel, mix it up and paint it on. That’s it!

Easy peasy.

And to finish things off, you gotta go with some funky tights!

Somehow I managed to get my seams straight, because I am made of magic.

Finally after all that, time to party!

In which I reverse photobomb everyone, because I am an idiot.
