Something Bright for this Cold, Dark, Damp Day!

Good Friday Morning Lovelies!!!

Today is yet another cold, damp, dark day!  Makes me wanna go home, and curl up on the recliner with a blanket, a MASSIVE cup of coffee and a book!  Immediately followed by a nap!  Yes please!

So to brighten up this dreary day I thought I'd show you a mani that I did that I decided I HAVE to do again this spring!  I just LOVE this.

Today's Mani started with a Franken for Rescue Beauty Lounges Bikini Bottom.  I followed the Fabulous Dr. Frankenpolish's recipe, you can find it HERE.  I think this took 3 coats for me.

Then, I applied my french tip guides.  Appearently I didn't wait long enough, as you will see in the pics below, because I got lines from where I pressed the guide down to be sure it was stuck completely.

Next I removed the polish on the tips, to prevent a thick chunky tip later on!

Then I painted OPI "Do you Lilac it?" on the tips.  I think I used 2 coats here.

Then, using Special Polish in White, I stamped the wavy design on M62 to the smile line.


This just screams SPRING to me!

Well Ladies, that's all I have for you for today!

I have a Fabulous mani planned for tonight and I SOOOO hope it turns out half as good as it does in my head! 
Then I have a FULL weekend planned!
On Saturday, Mom, Cassie(my sister), Rob and I will be goin to Philly to spend the day!  They have an AWESOME Market so I can't wait to explore!  I'll take lots of pics to share!  Cheesesteak, here I come!!!
Then Sunday, Papa B (my father-in-law), Rob and I are heading to the track, to test out the new carburetors on the Galaxie and get it ready for the first of the season next year!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

All I need is the recliner! It's going to be a crap weekend. Enjoy your time in Philly! Eat some chocolate cupcakes, by Tastycakes. They are the best. Then you can work it all off later. Love your manicure. It's definitely a Spring thing! Beautiful. Hope everything goes well with the Galaxie. Enjoy yourself this weekend. Love ya.
