Happy Birthday Jessa!

A lovely young lady by the name of Jessa contacted me recently asking me if I would like some nail art ideas. Of course! After exchanging some emails I discovered she is very talented. Today is her 12th birthday! I have recreated one of the looks Jessa sent to me.


Jessa's striped mani. She used Sally Hansen base coat, OPI Russian Navy and China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. For the stripes she used Sally Hansen Celeb City and China Glaze For Audrey. Isn't this cute? I love it!


I changed up the colors a bit, for mine I used Color Club Where's The Soiree? as the black base. China Glaze Ruby Pumps on the tip, Color Club Wonderland for the silver glitter stripe and Art Deco white.





Thank you Jessa so much for your creative ideas! I did a birthday mani just for you!


The pale base is OPI Sweet Heart. I made some huge cupcakes by putting a glob of clear nail polish and dipping my nail into glitter. I then painted the rest with acrylic paint. There's a lollipop and some wrapped candies. I put a top coat over my index finger not knowing what was going to happen. The lovely texture of the cupcake glitter was taken away so my ring finger I just put TC over the paper cup part!

I love Food Network and sometimes they show specialty cupcake stores and they always make cupcakes piled sky high with frosting. I really wanted to try one of those, why not wear it too?

I hope you have a wonderful birthday Jessa!

  12. Very pretty manicures. I don't have idea for nail art unless I look on the blogs. I can never get beyond the nail color. It always looks so pretty. Those cupcakes with all that frosting look yummy but I don't eat all of that. I never had one with that amount either. Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting might do it for me. Love your birthday manicure. Sweet in more than one way.
