Birthday Nails Part 1&2

Hey all! Boy has it been a busy week! I turned 27 on Wednesday and along with celebrating with family I have been planning my birthday bash. I just wanted to pop in and show you what's been on my nails this week.

My amazing boyfriend has been so sweet and sending me an Ulta gift card each day of my "birthday week" so that I could get myself some new polishes (seriously, how lucky am I?!?)

I will be posting my birthday polish haul on Sunday but here is a sneak peek 

Can't wait to share everything with you all.

Now onto the nails! For my birthday mani I did a bit of a glitter gradient with a stamped accent nail.

I totally loved these! To get the look I used 3 different Ulta polishes

From left to right: Broken & Blue, Walking On Broken Glass, In Hi-burr-nation

The accent nail was stamped using Cheeky plate CH33 and Avon's  Glisten Scintillant 

I kept that mani on until this evening and was sooo sad to take it off...but alas tomorrow is my party! The theme: mustache, tall socks karaoke party ( fun right?). Naturally I had to do a mustache mani

Eeeek! I just looooove them :0)

For this magnificently fun mani I used a few new products from my birthday haul

I did a base coat of OPI's Nail Envy (original formula) followed by 2 coats of Sally Hansen's Grass Slipper. After letting it all dry I used my nifty new mustache/kisses stamping plate that my mom gave me as a b-day gift ( which I have been wanting sooooo badly after seeing them on amazon. I apologize again for not knowing the manufacturer). I used a black striping polish that I received in my January Nail Art Society bag to stamp the images. I know that's a strange use for a striping polish but it seriously gave me such an opaque color for my stamp.

I am very proud of both of these looks. What about you? Which of my b-day manis did you enjoy?

Can't wait for Sunday when I have time to show you all my goodies from the week :0) For now its bed time. Have a great weekend!

Keep it polished!!!!
