It’s My Birthday!

It's my birthday!

It’s finally here! Time to leave my teen years behind. Obviously I’m going to celebrate it with some HIMYM references.

I don’t have a real post today, but I absolutely had to update you all on the wonderful presents I’ve received so far (all but one are polish related!).

My lovely boyfriend took me out to a birthday dinner at Max Brenner’s on Friday (it’s a restaurant whose menu revolves around chocolate! Absolute heaven.) and surprised me with early gifts. Lavender roses, sparkly earrings, white chocolate and the following:

Rhinestone wheel! These will certainly go over well with the ballroom team 🙂

15 piece brush set from Mash!

And last but most certainly not least:

Chanel Sky Line

Chanel’s Sky Line! I have been lusting after this beauty since the first promotion pictures showed up and never thought I would get my hands on it.

My current birthday mani (which is actually bday mani #3 hehe) is Zoya’s Aurora because it’s basically me in a bottle. Purple, sparkly holographic, and named after my favorite Disney princess, what more could I want? Aurora was part of my birthday present to myself along with Fei Fei and Tru, so they obviously had to be my first bday manis. I will post pictures of the other two at a later date, but for now here’s Aurora!

It was a little difficult to get pictures because the weather here has been so miserable, but here’s one in natural/dark light.

And one with indoor lighting, making Aurora look a lot darker than in reality. But look at those sparkles!

 

I was hoping to have a simultaneous 50 FB “likes” and birthday giveaway, but alas I’m still lacking on the “likes.” I do want to say a great big thank you to all of you who have been following me for a while. I hope to be posting a lot more soon with winter break coming up, especially because I have so much to work with now!

Until next time!

So, it’s been a while…

And I’m really hoping I’ve finally found my grove and will be back to posting regularly soon.

To start off, I guess I’ll review the past month+ that I’ve missed.

About a month ago, the girls on my ballroom team got together for a ladies night of Mean Girls and nail painting in preparation of a competition. Obviously, I went and shared the love of polish!

Fingers and toes!

 

And the finished results!

I even attempted at doing a water marble manicure on one of the other girls…but, let’s just say we need to work on our aim as the design kept ending up on her knuckles /:

Also recently, of course, was Thanksgiving! I actually was lucky enough to fly home this year, though it was only for a few days. Instead of going all in and doing a Turkey day design on my tips, I opted to go patriotic as my home studio’s dance party was USA themed.

I’m kind of wishing I had done something like this for the 4th of July as I received a lot of compliments on this mani!

And last for now, I just received my birthday present to myself in the mail yesterday! Using Zoya’s Black Friday promotion, I ordered three polishes I have been lusting after for a while. I present to you Aurora, Tru and FeiFei!

I just put on FeiFei and I think I may try painting some snowflakes on my nails in the morning. I will post pictures of my first beauty either way (:

Thank you guys for sticking with me and I’m glad to be back in action!
