Today's mani: my birthday nails!

Today's my 28th birthday! I'm looking forward to aging for one more year, after which I'll be 29 for the rest of my life (that's what happens to women, right??). I got some great gifts, including Nails, Nails, Nails!: 25 Creative DIY Nail Art Projects from my husband. He knows me well! My celebration started out this morning with a bowl of Lucky Charms, my traditional birthday cereal. Then I did my nails!

For my birthday mani I wanted to use Revlon Whimsical because it reminds me of cake frosting!

My base colors are L'Oreal The Palace Life (pink) and Wet 'n' Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint (blue). Revlon Whimsical is very sheer, so I was able to put two coats on without messing with the base colors too much. I just wish the glitter was more dense!

 OK, I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day! Don't forget I have a birthday-themed collection of polish for sale in my Etsy shop!


  1. Happy birthday! This is a gorgeous birthday, it reminds me of cupcakes :)

  2. Have a great birthday! I'm 28 too :) I love the blue triangle tips here...

  3. Woo happy birthday! My mom decided to stop aging at 17, which is getting a little complicated because my youngest brother will be 17 in April... :D

    1. "Forever young...I want to be forever young..."

  4. Love love love this! Happy (belated) birthday!
