Hi beauties, thank you all for your super birthday nails suggestions!
I went with a mix of the suggestions, all except animal print. I used Pocket Money Polishes suggestion of Barry M ‘Lychee’, Elise’s suggestion of birthstone nails and Helen’s party glitter idea.
This is what I came up with…
I chose to do a glitter gradient like I have done previously on the lychee polish because it works so well with the dress I plan to wear! I would have preferred to do a silver glitter gradient ideally because there are silver sequins on my dress, but I still haven’t found the perfect silver for gradients!
My glequin nail is emerald green – my birthstone.
It’s not too different to my previous pedi really. What do you think?
Hi all! Here is a mani that cheered me right up after my disastrous rainbow mani! My niece came to visit and allowed me to play polish with her lovely long nails! She wanted a half moon mani so I chose Opi Glints of Glinda as a base then Barry M black to paint the rest of the nail. I then used some emerald green glequins to define the half moon. Abbie said, “Wow they’re going to be green and black like the witch in Wizard of Oz!” hence the Oz inspiration!
The other day, after seeing a post on Blondes love Cupcakes about peel-off base coats, I went and purchased some PVA glue to see if that would do the trick. I painted it on before I painted my Sinful glitter and glequins on my index finger in my last mani. I have just gone to remove my polish and carefully peeled at the corner of my glequin nail and ta daaaa!
They have come off in one complete sheet, and it took me seconds to take off, unlike other methods of glitter removal! I love glitter, but just hate the removal with a passion, so this for me is a dream come true.
