How time flies...

I cannot believe it has been a year since I posted my cousin Phoebe's 13th birthday nails... but here we are at year 14!! :)

She had her party over the weekend and asked, once again, that I come over and do some nails for her and her two closest friends. I happily agreed!

Let's lead off with the Birthday Girl...

Lucky duck got the China Glaze Avant Garden Blooming Brights collection for her Birthday... I suggested she try water marbelling (because it's much easier to do with new polish) and then she asked if we could try it out while I was there...


I started with a base of Finger Paints Paper Mache on the marbelled nails. Then we used the following polishes: Mimosas before Manis, Snap my Dragon (also featured on her pinky fingers), Sunday Funday (that gorgeous blue!), and Budding Romance. 

Second was her friend Olivia; who choose a simple but super cute manicure...


We used China Glaze Re-fresh Mint and Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter (a dupe of "for audrey"), and the glitter is Jordana Gemstones (a dupe of DL Happy Birthday).

Last but not least was Hayley, who decided to make use of my new Cult Nails Morning Glory polish...


She loved the mattified look, and after much deliberation, settled on this design. I think this one was my favourite of the evening. The base on the other nails was China Glaze Re-fresh Mint and the roses were freehanded using China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, Cult Nails Morning Glory, & American Apparel Malibu Green. I topped the accent nails off with Essie Matte About You. 


I love how all three girls choose an accent nail look! Overall the party was a lot of fun and I hope the girls each enjoyed themselves. It's sad to think I won't be around next year to do this again... Wait, did I get into Physio school in Halifax for September?? ;)
