How about a sweet treat?

Hi Everyone!   got a super cute mani to show you today!  I picked up a couple of the Berry Friends from Red Dog Designs awhile back.  This is a collection based on the Strawberry Shortcake cartoon.  I'm pretty old so my glory days definitely did not have Strawberry Shortcake and Friends in it that I can recall, but holy cow are these some pretty polishes!

I'm not a fan of glitters in a colored base--which is why the whole "indie" craze has eluded me or rather I've managed to elude it BUT these two I snagged are simply AHdorable!  I chose Lemon Meringue and Raspberry Tart from the collection and I have to tell you, I will definitely get all of these as they are just fantastic!  

I started with a lovely gradient of Sinful Colors Unicorn, Zoya Pippa and Sinful Pull Over--same gradient I used for my accent nail on my Beauty And The Beast mani.  As far as yellow gradients go, it's my go to favorite now.  I did some cute stamping over it and then did a couple of accent nails of Lemon Meringue!
What makes me so happy about this mani is usually yellow looks awful on me because I am so pale, but I think this looks great on me!
Red Dog's Lemon Meringue is a fun polish with bright yellow base with an iridescent gold shimmer and then glitter of white and green hex, gold circle glitter and small dark gold glitter.  It's just super fun!
I stamped a few citrus images on my accent gradient and topped em off with a rhinestone!
And since we had an 80 degree weather here yesterday I think it's safe to say we're on on our way to summer so this mani makes it all the more fun!!!

The Berry Friends collection is available on Red Dog Designs Big Cartel.  You can find them HERE.  As I said earlier I'm definitely going to be snagging up some more of these!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!
