Happy Birthday to Me! My Birthday Manicures

A benefit that comes with being a nail polish addict is being able to do whatever kind of manicure you want for your birthday. I can never decide on just one, so this year, I did two manicures for my birthday.

The first of my two manicures involved 2 of my favorite things; purple and glitter! I used OPI Pamplona Purple as a base and topped it with one coat of Orly Bubbly Bombshell. I really loved the way this manicure turned out. It wasn’t one I had tried before.

The second birthday manicure, which I’m currently wearing, is a repeat of a manicure I did ages ago. I used Orly Rage as my base and topped it with two coats of OPI Spark de Triomphe. It’s just super sparkly and blingy. I love it!

I’m not doing anything special today for my birthday but this weekend I intend to celebrate fully. Saturday my boyfriend and I are going to a Charlotte Hounds game. They are a professional lacrosse team in their first season here in Charlotte so I’m looking forward to that. On Sunday my family is having a big cookout to celebrate not only my birthday, but my grandfather’s 91st birthday and father’s day. On top of all of that the Euro Cup and the US Open are on all weekend. I’m a happy girl!

  1. I have been a fan of Orly’s Rage since I saw it first in Sally’s around the Christmas holiday last yr. I have this OPI topper and have liked it a lot despite I have this huge adversion to glitters typically – I tire of the look fast and hate taking them off. But OPI Spark de Triomphe is really unique – I love it put on over something if I can keep it really sheer. The black specks in it are a really interesting look. Happy b’day…and I also am excited to watch the US Open!

    1. Orly Rage is one of my all time favorite polishes! It’s so pretty on it’s own and works well under about anything and I find myself using it pretty often for nail art.

      Thanks for the birthday wishes! Tomorrow, in honor of the US Open, I will be posting golf nail art. Be afraid. Very afraid!

  2. Love your birthday manis! I’m wearing Rage right now haha. I’ll try layering Spark de Triomphe over it for an update 🙂 Have a great birthday!
