Happy Belated Birthday to Me!
(Oh, and since my birthday was on Mother’s Day this year, a Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!!!)
Being a May baby means May is one of my favorite months of the year, and this year I decided to celebrate with a birthday-themed #MonthlyMani so I can celebrate all month long! My birthday nail art features one of my favorite nail colors – lilac – as the main color and a fun cupcake accent nail on each ring finger.
The idea came to me from a pair of cupcake earrings that I wear nearly every year on my birthday. I got this pretty rose gold pink nail polish last month from Julep and knew right away that it had to feature in my birthday nail art. It also happened to make the perfect base for my cupcake nails. Here’s how I did it:
I started by painting two coats of the rose gold glitter on each ring finger and the lilac purple on every other nail.
Once the first two coats were reasonably dry (hey, I’m not the most patient person), I used my white striping polish to paint the top of the cupcake on each ring finger and followed that with a simple red polka dot because who doesn’t want a cherry on top??
As you can see, this was a really simple manicure, and now that I know how easy it was to make the “cupcakes,” I could totally see a manicure with cupcakes on every nail! Wouldn’t that be adorable?? Here are the polishes I used:
From left to right: lilac “Karin” by Julep // rose gold “Nell” by Julep // white stripe polish generic from dollar store // bright red “Rose” by Julep
I probably say this every month, but this might be my newest favorite MonthlyMani ever…! I mean, it does have pretty much all my favorite things – my favorite nail color, lilac, pretty glitter accent, cupcakes, and a cherry on top! What more could a girl want?!
So, lay it on me, what do you think of my birthday nail art??
As always, thanks for reading! :)
