Nail Art: My Birthday Mani!

Image Credit: Pinterest  

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I'm showing you the mani I wore for my birthday! I turned the big 29 on January 5th so of course I had to have some fun nails to celebrate the occasion. I wanted something that looked like birthday cake and super fun yumminess so I went all out! Let me show you what I did:

I started by picking the crelly that is on my pinkie and ring finger to base the mani around. I used Madam Glam Fun In A Bottle because it just screamed fluffy, fun frosting to me. Since there are many different neon glitters in that crelly, I decided to pair a watermarble with it using neon colors. I laid down a white base first using GGal White Pointer. Once that was mostly dry, I placed liquid latex from Nail Experiments around my cuticle and down my finger a bit to protect my skin from the excess polish. Once my latex had dried, I used Shinespark Polish Pumped Pink, Psych'd Purple, and Bouncing' Blue for the watermarble because they work so well! I drew a flower petal design in the polish using my Pure Color #7 tool from WhatsUpNails. I immediately pulled off the latex and allowed my design to dry. Once it was mostly dry I used a tiny dotting tool to add the white dots in to help tie it in with the crelly even more. Once everything was dry, I topcoated with KBShimmer Clearly On Top to seal it all in! 

Since I had some fancy nails, my husband surprised me and took me for fancy sushi for dinner: 

On my actual birthday, I got to sleep in until 11am (big deal when you have kiddos!) while my husband cleaned the house and played with my boys. We just spent the day relaxing and being together. I had cheesecake for my birthday cake (because cheesecake is the best baked confection) and had presents after my kids went to sleep. My husband even made sure to let my 3 year old pick out a separate card for me. <3 a="" all="" and="" blog="" car="" day="" detailed.="" fab="" get="" had="" i="" in="" included="" keurig="" later="" match="" my="" myself="" nails="" nbsp="" new="" out="" p="" picked="" polish="" post="" presents="" pretties="" show="" some="" to="" trip="" will="" with="">
