Hi everyone! A happy Mother’s Day to all those that celebrated yesterday. Mother’s Day can be such a bittersweet day for a lot of people and I find it hard not to think about those who have lost their mothers and those who yearn to be mothers on a day like yesterday. I hope it was a blessed day for everyone none the less. My husband worked late the previous night, into Sunday morning, so I didn’t get breakfast in bed. Instead I got up to make breakfast for myself and the kids. Maybe when they’re older someone will find it in their heart to get up for me 😛 On Friday Elijah brought me a small bottle of bubble bath with a “Happy Mother’s Day” note attached which they were given at school. I went to church with Gabby where the mothers gathered for tea and cake after service to celebrate. When I got home I painted my nails and soon we were off to my mother in law for lunch. All in all it wasn’t a bad day. Let me show you the mani I wore 🙂

Revlon Coy and Pink Glaze

Revlon Coy and Pink Glaze

 

I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat to protect my nails. I painted 3 coats of Revlon Coy on all of my nails. Coy is the bottle in the second picture. It is a lovely baby pink creme. The formula was good on this one. I didn’t flood my cuticles at all when painting. It definitely required 3 coats though, which isn’t unusual for a light pink polish. I have a similar colour in another brand which also requires 3 coats to even out nicely. It really is a gorgeous pink and I am happy to have another! On my middle and ring nails I added a coat of Revlon Pink Glaze over Coy. Pink Glaze is a gorgeous fuschia shimmer suspended in a clear base. I am so cross that I couldn’t get the fuschia to show up in any of my photos because it is very apparent in person. Not only is it very easy to see, but it is GORGEOUS! I cannot WAIT to layer it over a dark colour like black or purple. It is going to look amazing! Perhaps it will show up better in photos then. On my middle nail I placed a sticker from a sheet that I received at Born Pretty Store (press sample), I will be reviewing it for the blog soon so keep an eye out for that and I added a gold stud from one of my nail wheels on my ring nail (also from BPS*). I received these 2 polishes in the #CTMeetUp goodie bag when I attended over the weekend. We also got some other goodies, but I will include those in a separate blog post 🙂 Here they are on their own:

What do you think of this mani and these colours? I like wearing feminine manis on Mother’s Day, just like I did last year. Let me know what you think in the comments below 🙂
