NOTD: Birthday Nails!

It’s my birthday! So, I decided to stop being lazy and actually do a NOTD!

ZoyaAbby | by themani-ac

Let me preface by saying that I haven’t done anything with my nails in forever. I’ve been in a bit of a rut, plus I’ve been loving Zoya Blu lately. I decided to finally try one of the new Zoyas that I got… this is Abby.

So, here I have two coats of Abby, once that was dry, I used my silver leaf and created this gradient. I topped everything off with Essie Good To Go.

In terms of Abby, itself, this was the first time I used it, and I’m liking it more than I thought I would. That sounds silly, because… I bought it… why wouldn’t I like it?! But, I’ve been leaning towards blues and just didn’t think this warmer purple would suit me, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is a thinner formula, but covers nicely and dries super fast. It’s also very shiny without a top coat. So pretty, I love it.

NOTD: Disney Galaxy For My Birthday!

It’s my birthday! And I’m in Disney World! I’m a quarter of a century old today, and the only way to combat feeling too old is by celebrating in my favorite place… the happiest place on earth! Yes, I’m a walking billboard for Disney at all times lol.

disneygalaxyMy base is one good coat of Zoya Neve. Then I sponged on Zoya Purity followed by China Glaze At Vase Value, Orly Frisky, Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Brucci Absolute Andrea. Once I got all the colors sponged on, I actually went back and sponged on Neve in certain areas. When everything was dry I added a coat of Sally Hansen Disco Ball for the sparkle! When that was dry, I used Purity and a dotting tool to do the dots and Mickeys! Finally topped everything off with Essie Good To Go.

Soooo, I like them lol. What do you guys think?

Oh oh, happy Friday and Memorial Day Weekend!

My Birthday Nails! Hand Placed Glitter Half Moons!

Yesterday was my birthday! Hooray! Here’s what my birthday mani looked like…

birthday2014My base is two coats of Girly Bits I Hit My Bunny Phone, because it’s one of my favorites and I love it! Then I hand placed the big gold gleequins from OPI When Monkeys Fly into half moons!

I’ve obviously really been liking half moons lately lol and I really love Bunny Phone with gold, so pretty!

What do you guys think?
