Happy Birthday

fourthwatermarble

It’s my birthday and Independence Day!  This water marble MANicure is a present from my Husband, Mr. FLBN, who actually did my nails!  Mr. FLBN, an artist & hobby painter himself, was watching a youtube video of guitars being water marbled in 80’s colors and wanted to give it a try in red, white & blue. I have the greatest husband ever! Seriously.

I Heart Nail Art

securedownload-9

I heart nail art and polish!  If only I could remind myself of that, I started biting my nails again and my thumb took the hit.  I’ve been biting my nails since I was a toddler and it’s a life long habit I’m trying to break. I think bringing a nail file with me at all times might help.

American Girl Doll Nails

American Girl Doll nails.  This is only my 3rd or 4th time stamping. I need more practice so I’ll stick with the smaller designs.  These plates were purchased off of Ebay.

I had an American Girl birthday party to attend today for a little girl and this is the design I wore. I had the cake, decorations, & pastries to make so this was a quick paint job I tried to squeeze in and I’m happy with how they turned out.

Freshly Squeezed

Orange, guava & grapefruit juice.  It kind of  looks like the Today Show logo. The e.l.f. Party Peach coverage was impressive and only needed one coat.  I only have 3 Spa Ritual polishes that I’ve picked up at TJ Maxx I really wish I owned more.  I used the office supply hole reinforcements from Target that a multiple blogs had recommended, they’re fantastic.
