Hello! I wanted to do something non-typical for my birthday. Everyone was telling me to fit on 28 candles but I just thought that was boring, until I thought I'd stick ACTUAL candles on my nails...but I'd probably start a fire.
Oh, here is a birthday story for ya: I think I was about 6 and I was celebrating my birthday with my Dad. He made me a cake that had a LOT of candles and sparklers on it. Now, back in the day my caucasian grandma, who has no idea how to manage hair like mine, used to brush it out so hard I looked like Diana Ross on crack. Now imagine that hair in two "pig tails" (think puffballs) on either side of my head. Anyway, so there I was, excited 6 year old me, with all these fancy candles and what not on my Strawberry Shortcake cake and I was tossing my head back and forth. All of a sudden I see this glint out of the corner of my eye and about 15 seconds later my Dad is screaming and smacking at my head. Thats right, my cake set my hair on fire. Happy Birthday to me.
So this year to celebrate I decided to turn my nails into little birthday disco balls! I started off with China Glaze OMG as the base and then I snagged some craft rhinestones that were in a border shape from the dollar store, cut them separately with a knife then maneuvered them onto my nails with tweezers. After about a gazillion hours later I put on some topcoat which sort of dulled the rhinestones, so I gave them all a coat of Sally Hansen Disco Ball.
Bling Bling!! I kinda love them.
And, what better way to celebrate my 28 years on earth than a giveaway!
