Hi everyone! As always I interrupt the Valentine’s Day manicures to show you what I was wearing on my nails for my son’s birthday party. Last year I did a mani I was super proud of, my Superman nails turned out so great. About 2 weeks before the party this year I came across a design on The Lacquerologist’s blog which I thought would fit the theme beautifully. I don’t think mine turned out quite as beautiful as hers, but I’ll take it! This is what I ended up with:
I started off with my regular Tip Top base coat to protect my natural nails. I painted two coats of Tip Top Speck-tacular (blue) and Tip Top Love That Shine (pink) on my nails alternating colours. The blue nails represent my son, the knight and the pink nails my daughter, the princess. On the pink nails I added crown stickers from the same pack that I used for her 2nd birthday. On the blue nails I freehanded little castle type things using a striping brush and essence As Long As You Love Me (grey), an L.A. girl mini I won from Ordinary Misfit (black) and I filled in the flags with a dotting tool using Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby. I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite.
I was happy with the way these turned out and once again I thought my dominant hand (left) turned out better than my non dominant hand. What do you think? Are they appropriate for the theme? Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading!
