Happy Tuesday lovelies! Today I have a very special nail collab to share with you. One of the most amazing things about the nail community is the way it brings people together. Last August I did a mani swap with Hannah from @hjs_nails & we bonded over the fact we both had baby boys in February. Since our beautiful little guys share a birthday month we decided to team up & do some Bestie Twin Baby Boy Birthday Nails in their honour.
How handsome do our little guys look hanging out beside their special birthday manicures! For our designs, Hannah & I created a fun celebratory design featuring a gradient dotticure (to represent confetti), some balloons & the number one. Hannah had painted her nail design first, so I followed her polish picks to match the best I could.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Quo by ORLY Breathable Kiss Me, I’m Kind
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- ORLY Decades of Dysfunction
- Essie Strut Your Stuff
- Essie Too Too Hot
- L’Oreal Feeling Kilty
- Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Black Heart
- Small detail brush from Bundle Monster
- Small dotting tool from Bundle Monster
How cute did this design turn out?! The colour combination reminds me of a race car, which is perfection when celebrating baby boys. My little guys birthday isn’t until Thursday, but it still works because on this day last year I was on day 2 of my 54 hour labour! It’s kind of crazy to believe that I am almost the Mom of a one year old. This year has certainly been a whirl wind, & it definitely hasn’t been easy to balance Mom-life with non-Mom life (like blogging & doing my nails) but I wouldn’t trade it. It’s been a very interesting adventure.
My nails & my 9 pound baby boy.
Hope you liked this design! & don’t forget to pop over to Hannah’s instagram (@hjs_nails) & give her mani some love too!
Have a happy Tuesday! 🎈🎉🎁
