My Birthday Mani!

... had to be something sweet and adorable for, to me, my birthdays are The Event of the year! hahaha :)

I love celebrating my birthday and I'm actually the kind of person who, two weeks before, makes the countdown till The Big Day - everyone around me knows that by now and people actually join in! I'm like a big kid, really - tsk, tsk ;)

Anyway, yesterday was a lovely, amazing day, full of awesomness and, most of all, full of love, as my birthdays always are. I have but to thank everyone who shared some of their love with me yesterday - I love you all back! THANK YOU! <3

So, here's what I wore yesterday, 14th of November, the day of my 30th birthday!






Bahahahaha! Very grown up of me or what?
A very lady-like mani, I'd say ;)
Which is why I particularly chose this picture of the grey bears - the little felow looks like he's having a tee-hee laugh, doesn't he? ;)






I searched for pictures of the grey bears - they're loveable and just plain cute - and ended up choosing this one here!





I decided on a baby pink for the background instead and not the bright fuchsia pink of the picture ;)
I went with Inocos Rosa Bebé and added a wee bit of sparkle to it with Serenna SE036.




I decided to have the fuzzy bear on my middle finger and proceeded with acrylic paints - I mixed three different kinds of grey shades - one for his whole body; another for his muzzle and ears; and a final one for his outline and body hair ;)




I then went on adding the hearts for, like I said before, love was all around me from the moment I woke up till the moment I laid down to sleep <3
I thought of red hearts, but decided on the black ones instead, 'cause I thought the red would be too disruptive ;)


What do you think of this one? Cute or what? Should I have gone with a more elegant, feminine, lady-like mani, appropriate to my age? :P

hehehe - let me know all about it down below! And hope you're one to celebrate your birthdays like this - it's the only way, really ;)

Hugs & Kissies,
Mina *
