They say it's my birthdayyy!

...we're gonna have a good time! Hello nail friends, today is indeed my birthday. Woot woot! I'm a strict subscriber to the whole birthdays-are-a-big-deal belief. I don't care whose birthday it is. I don't care how old the person is. If there's a birthday for someone who means something to me I am right there celebrating it. Seriously, I have been known to celebrate "birthday weekend" for my boyfriend when we can only see each other on the weekend and not on the actual day. I tend to text people "Happy Birthday" consistently throughout their birthday just because I can (at one point I tried to text a buddy of mine 21 times for her 21st birthday...I'm serious). Get the picture? I love celebrating people I guess -- hopefully that's not weird. Anyway, this year it's doubly special today because (A) we're celebrating MEEEEE (*cue conceited moment*) and (B) I get to share my birthday with celebrating my mom (because Mother's Day is today!). Ok, now that that's out of the way...Last year I celebrated my birthday with this design and you know I love me some color so I came up with this design...

I'm kinda sorta really completely obsessed with this manicure to be honest. (It's not bad to really like your own manicure right?). For this birthday look, I used Essie Be Right Bag as the base and then dotted ROY G. BIV (the rainbow) across the nail in Zoya Kristi, OPI Flit A Bit, Sinful Colors Pull Over, China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada, China Glaze Moody Blue, Orly Blue Suede, and Zoya Mira.

And I just realized right now that I did NOT include my age on this one! I always put the person's age on the thumb! Dagnabbit!


  1. first off, I didn't know, you didn't mention on your last e-mail and when we talked about special mani collabs to do, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GIRL!!!!!! i am a huge subscribert to your same "birthdays are a big deal" club, so I'm right here cheering for you today! I don't know if you are used to, but we say you need to make a wish while you blow your birthday candles so don't forget to, and to pamper yourself, and to let others spoil you, and to do something you love. Will you see Andrew today?
    This manicure is stunning and so neat! I am always surprised by how creative and different you can go with dotted manis. I would insist for you to insert your age to your thumb now, there's room for it, and traditions are to be respected.
    So, I wish you a year full of amazing things going on, lacquer colors all over, great blogging experiences, trips to italy, roses and romantic dinners from your sweetheart, smiles, fun moments and whatever you may wish for!

  2. Happy birthday darling!!

    I hope you had a wonderful day ;)
