It's my BIRTHDAY and I'll polish if I want to ;)

It's time for some birthday nail art! One of the first nail art pictures I ever stumbled upon was a couple years ago, and they were cupcake nails! I found them here. I figured this was the perfect occasion to attempt them :)

Birthday Cupcake Nails

I have a polish by Lush Lacquer called Birthday Cake, so I knew I wanted to include it in this look. I also used OPI Pink Friday, OPI Suzi's Hungary Again, and OPI Alpine Snow on my lil' cupcake.

I also purchased some sequins from MASH that I have been wanting to try. This was my first time using sequins and I used a dotting tool dipped in water to pick them up. I placed them while my top coat, Seche Vite, was still tacky and then topped them with another coat. 

I used Jindie Nails - Talk Nerdy To Me on all my other nails. (love that name!)

Okay, I love Seche Vite with all my heart, but I used a bottle that was almost gone, and the shrinkage is killin' me! I swear I wrapped my tips with those dark pink lines! Ughh just wanted ya'll to know. 

I digress.. I do my best to find beauty in every color of the rainbow but I am a girly-princessey person at heart. So of course I grabbed these colors for my special day. 

While we are on the topic of my b-day, why not share my present to myself? My favorite animal is the bunny. When I found out there is a brand (HARE polish) with a bunny for their logo I was intrigued. Over time, I realized how hard it is to snag a bottle! Finally, I own a few!
