A Happy Birthday and an old mani

Before I begin rambling I just want to say the following:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my first follower...MY MOM!!!

Mom, you are seriously the greatest mom ever!  I know alot of people think their mom's are the best, but I'm sorry, they are wrong, mine is! :)  Thanks for always teaching me to be whoever and however I wanted to be, and for supporting all my crazyness, whether mundane, like doing my nails weird colors, or wild, like when you helped me dye my hair bright magenta pink!   I LOVE YOU!!!
(and I really miss the pink hair!) :)


Ok, well Rob got done WAY WAY sooner than I would have liked yesterday, so I had to wait 'til I was home and we had trained in the gym, to play.  I was super bummed cause I could not get the awesome image in my head to work on my nails.  I will not claim defeat though!  I'm still working on it!

So for today I have an old mani for ya.  It's actually my husbands second favorite!  LOL

For this I used China Glaze "Liquid Leather" for the base.  Then I used the swirly patterm from M63.  I took China glaze "Harmony", "Cherish" and "Adore" and dropped dots randomly over the design, making sure I had each color on their twice at least for variety.  Then a quick scrape and stamp and voila!

 
  
I'm sorry about the messy cuticle area.  I hadn't cleaned it all up yet.
Lacquerlaine.blogspot.com is having an awesome contest, green and gold glitters!!!  So be sure to visit her awesome blog and enter!

Thanks for visiting, and have a fantastic day!

This is very creative, I'd never think of dropping 3 different colours before scraping. My favorite. Thank you!

Happy Bday to your mama! I love how you did this mani. It's so simple with the black base, and I love that you mixed the colors. I can see why it's one of your hubbies favorite!
