Happy Late Birthday!

Hey Ladies!

As always: Better late than never! This is a mani that I did for my birthday back in March. I was inspired by a shirt I had bought that week for myself. So I kinda mimicked the shirt on my nails for the night we went out dancing!

So I started off with two coats of China Glaze's best color EVER made: For Audrey! In my opinion, this is the most beautiful color on earth. Don't get me wrong. I love unique colors that have 43 thousand shades in one (I exaggerate a bit). Love douchromes. Love holos. But you don't always have to be crazy to be a beautiful color. I remember when I first saw this color. Mari wore it out for a previous birthday outing of mine. I loved it so much that I went on the hunt for it. Sally's Beauty was sold out back then. Thankfully I was able to get it online from Transdesign. *insert heavenly music here* I was sooo happy. Mari and I usually share our colors but this is one of the few colors we each own a bottle of. I guess you can say its in my permanent line! Moving on....

I applied 2 coats of For Audrey. I then stamped with Konad plate m57 using their Black Special Polish. Then I dotted with China Glaze's Spontaneous. This color was great for it because it's seriously opaque! You ask: How did I dot? (Or you might not care!) Either way, listen up (those of you that don't have a dotting tool). I don't own a dotting tool. I got a toothpick and cut a little bit of the tip off so it wouldn't be so pointed. You want that flat end for dotting. Don't cut too far unless you want a fatter dot. Then I just placed a drop of the polish on my nail board (yes, I have a board -school binder flap- that I use to paint my nails on in case I ever spill polish - don't want that landing on my desk). I dipped the end of the cut toothpick in the polish and then applied it on my nail. I waited a while for the dots to dry and then applied a coat of Seche Vite (didn't want the dots to smear).

And that's basically it...


Hope you gals like it. Happy Polishing!

The colour combo is so cute! I'm thinking I need this plate too, got to be easier than doing it by hand.
