Nude Glitter Ombre Nails (Birthday Edition!)
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Seuss
Birthdays are the one day out of the entire year that are entirely our own. We can relish in the moments spent celebrating with friends and family, be pampered if we so choose, and feel special by the 200 “Happy Birthday!” Facebook comments on our Timeline.
We can take two-hour sit down lunches on a workday. We can eat a cupcake for breakfast and wear a fancy dress. We can enjoy blowing out candles on a store bought cake at our grandparents’ or parents’ house. We can treat ourselves to something special we’ve been wanting (that Kate Spade bag, those “to die for” heels, a gel manicure, or a few fashion magazines from the check out stand). We can turn off our phones and laptops. We can take a few minutes out of our day to chat with old friends. We can think about where in the world we’ll be in five years. We can thank our moms (or dads or grandparents or aunts or whoever raised us) for bringing us into this world.
We can do it up big or we can do relax and do nothing at all. The choice is yours!
Today is my 28th birthday, and in honor of it, I will be doing a few of the things I mentioned above. But first, I want to share with you a photo of my birthday nails (it wouldn’t be MY day without nail talk!). Many of you may already be familiar with ombre glitter nails, because they are super awesome. But of course I had to make them my own with lots and lots of sparkle and a nude gradient effect (via sponge painting). I hope you enjoy these nails as much as I did. They certainly added a very special touch to my birthday outfit.
Tell me what you do to celebrate your own special day!
