Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Hi everyone!!!  It's my birthday today!  Hooray!!!
My little Evan decided to take a nap today, so I actually had some time to spend on my nails today!


Isn't my cake super cute with all the little polish bottles??  They even have glitter on them!


I started off with three coats of China Glaze IDK, a medium purple holo.


This is without a doubt one of my favorite purple holos!


Since it's super pretty out today, I thought I'd snap a few shots out in the sunlight!


Next, I used some striping tape to create a trail-esque pattern from one point on each of my nails, and followed it with one coat of Sally Hansen Spark, a deep purple creme with a soft navy shimmer.


Spark is definitely a "from the vault" polish!  I've had it in my arsenal for years now!!  It's such a great dark color for cooler weather.  I followed it with one coat of SV.


I initially added the stripes so that they would kind of mimic the trails from a comet.  So I grabbed my bottle of Pretty & Polished Hello Dolly and fished out some of the big white hex glitters to place at the starting point of the trails.


For a little extra sparkle, I used Candeo Colors Joker and went fishing for some of the periwinkle hexes to add toward the end of the trails.  I finished with one more coat of SV to secure the glitters and smooth out the lines.


I really enjoyed being able to sit and take my time with this!!


I hope you all like it as well!!

Hapy Painting!!
