Belated Birthday Nails

Hi all,

Today I want to share with you the manicure I wore on my birthday (which was wednesday)! I meant to share this with you sooner but I keep getting tied up in other things and editing/watermarking photos takes time.

But it's better late than never…

I wanted something simple featuring one of my favourite color-combinations (nude, white and black). And decided to throw in a little glitter for fun.

The glitter is Shimmer Polish Irene. Accent nails feature OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons as the base, then  I stamped over it with BM-423 and konad special black polish. I used the stamp as an outline and then painted on either side of the black stripes with Finger Paints Paper Mache and Bonita Chrome my Nail. 

I also got a lot of polishes and nail art treats for my birthday :) My boy spoiled me by adding to my ever-growing Cult Nails collection (polishes you will see in future posts). And my sister spoiled me with two mirror-effect Layla polishes that have been on my lemming list for ages, and the Bundle Monster holiday collection! :) And my parents surprised me with some money transferred into my account (a college students favourite!) which I get to spend on "me"! So needless to say I had an excellent day and now I am looking forward to Christmas more than ever.

Exams are fast approaching but I will try my best not to fall off the face of my blog altogether :)
