February is my birthday month! My age is probably not as enticing as a decade ago but I am still up for celebration! I may be old when it comes to my age but I'm young at heart and nails! :P
My birthday isn't today but I am preparing my nails for a week long celebration! I will be celebrating my birthday in advance with families and friends starting tonight! Yes, tonight! I don't mind blowing candles multiple times!
Happy Birthday Nails
Be ready for super long steps! You can choose to create only ONE design on all nails! I was just in the mood for multiple designs!
Use your preferred base coat to prevent yellowing of nails. I painted 2 coats of Elianto Turquoise Nail polish and used ELF Platinum Polish color on the ring fingernail.
Creating a single balloon on Ring Finger
I applied a coat of Barry M "Once Upon A Time" polish to create a nice confetti effect.
Using my biggest nail art dotting tool, I made a huge dot with Revlon All Fired Up.
Creating a group of balloons on Pointer Fingernail
I reached out and randomly picked nice shades of polish and dotted it straight on my pointer fingernails! Very important that your base coat is completely dry so the colors won't mix!
Create a reflection again with White Prettynails 2 Way Nail Art Pen. If you don't have nail art pens, you can purchase a small brush from art supply stores to line the dots with white polish.
I can totally imagine how cute a blue and pink would look together! (Exactly like our wedding motif) I painted a thick French Tip on top of a dry base with Revlon Temptress.
Create a huge red dot on top of the cupcake with Revlon All Fired Up. The dot does not have to be perfect!
You can create sprinkles on the cupcake itself with a toothpick or in my case, with a nail art dotting tool.
Creating Candles on thumb nailsHow can I blow a birthday cupcake without candles? I've chosen my favorite Blue and Pink color again and draw a straight line.
Using Black Nail Art Pen, create a wick
Using yellow polish to create "tiny flame"
Draw lines on the candle itself for it not too look too bare! I was actually thinking about tiny birthday candles at this point!
Give it some time to make sure the nail art designs are COMPLETELY dry, you can blow dry your nails at this point. Apply one coat of your favorite Top Coat.
Aren't the nails festive enough for someone celebrating her 18th *ahem* birthday?
*no violent reactions ok?* :P
Yes, too tedious but I really enjoyed playing with colors and being kiddie!
Again, you can choose only one design for the whole 10 fingernails!
Hope you like it!
