Hi everyone, welcome to Sunday! I hope your weekend is going well. Yesterday we were trapped inside because of a snow storm but we did manage to get some shopping done beforehand. The rest of the day was spent messing with nail stuff and watching Netflix.
Today I have my birthday nails that I did last night. My birthday is tomorrow but I have a really pretty Indie collection to show off tomorrow :) I'm not really a big fan of birthdays, normally I like them because I get to indulge in my favorite pizza and cake, but this year my allergies make that impossible. I think we are planning on having crab legs and rice krispie bars (not together, because that sounds disgusting), so I guess that's making the best of it. I am happy to not have to work tomorrow.
Today I have my birthday nails that I really ended up liking. I knew I wanted to do something with pretty pastel "cupcake" colors so I decided to do a tape mani. I cut some strips of painter's tape, taped them over a base of OPI Alpine Snow, and used a small nail art brush to fill in the rest of the colors. For the "cupcake" colors I used OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, OPI Mod About You, Wet N' Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh-Mint, Essie Mint Candy Apple, and OPI Chic From Ears to Tail.
Because this mani matched my fantastic new donut pillows, which were also a birthday present, I decided they were the perfect backdrop :)
So tell me, do you like birthdays? Do you have any long standing traditions? Let me know in comments!
