Bring On 2014!

It's the final countdown (de dee de deeeeee!)... ;)
 
Here is my last manicure of 2013. I debated showing you my New Year Nails now or waiting for tomorrow but opted for tonight since I wanted an official "last post of 2013". :) So let's take a look at what I'm wearing to finish this year. 
 

This is my first New Years manicure eva! ;D
This entire mani is acrylic paint except for the base which is Wet n Wild Black Crème.
Don't judge me but I am loving matte nails right now.. Sometimes glossy nails just don't show up like you want them too!
And here is the last photo of my New Year Nails. :)
 
Okay guys, I am not going to get sappy and sad but just I just want to give a super quick thanks for following me. 2013 has been a fabulous year; I have posted 131 different blog entries which is almost three times the amount of 2012. (Note: I didn't start blogging in 2012 until July xD) My photography along with my editing skills (as in watermarks and cropping) has improved immensely this year too! Blogging and painting nail art has become a huge part of my life -- I will continue to grow everyday. :) Thank you all for being there for me and I know 2014 is going to be great!
 
  • One of my biggest accomplishments this year was finally completing the ABC Nail Challenge. ;D I learned that I stink at challenges and probably won't ever do one of those things again.
  • My greatest discovery this year was finding out that you can download Photoshop CS2 for freaking FREE using this link here. I fully credit Lacquerheads of Oz with this valuable information! I edit all my pictures (the curved watermark and my little Polish Pals in the corner) using this CS2.
  • You probably have noticed the improved photo quality recently too. ;) Thanks for letting me use (ahem.. kind of have..) your camera, Mommy. xD It's this super spiffy Canon camera that I started using right after I read Will Paint Nails For Food blog post about "Taking Nail Photos". It inspired me to actually find my Mom's Canon and start using it. 
 
So there are just my top achievements of 2013! I'm done flaunting. ;) It's officially midnight where I live in about 6 minutes so I better post. xD I hope you had a great last night in 2013 and stayed safe! <3
 
Your Polish Pal,
Jenna
 
Bahahaha Happy New Year guys. ;) I forgot to mention one last huge decision I made this year... I cut off over 12 inches of my hair this year and donated it to Locks of Love. :) Okay, 2 minutes until 2014! I must post this now. xD (Random selfie... I hardly ever post selfies on here bahaha, so feel special!)
