Bright Lights!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy weekend!  Today I'm enjoying some time to myself.  I'm going through my stash to see what needs to be kept and what can go.  It's starting to look like a polish junk yard around here with little piles of polish laying on the floor OUTSIDE of the melmers for crying out loud!  I'm going to take some time to do that today as well as haul the chinchillas out for their dust baths and some playtime in the hall way and bathroom.

I'm also reading a new book today and lazing around in my pajamas!  Woot!

Yesterday I had a super cute mani on to match the new top my mom bought me.  We went shopping together on the one year anniversary of my dad's death a couple of weeks ago so I decided to pimp it up with a matching manicure.  It turned out fantastic if I do say so myself!

I started out with a base of neon yellow--any bright yellow will do actually.  then I applied Dandy Nails Chilled Down, which is a light grey with micro gold and blue flakes in it over my dried yellow and did the saran wrap mani technique.  The result was really cool, basically the grey got absorbed into the plastic wrap so it left gold and blue flakes on my yellow.  I needed to tone
 it down just a bit so I dabbed some white on very sparingly just using the bunched up saran wrap.  It turned out exactly as I had hoped!!!

Then I had to go on an adventure to find some swirl images and I found just what I was looking for with BM224!

Here's the mani!

I can not believe how perfect this turned out--exactly what I visioned in my head!

And here it is with my new top so you can see just how perfect they go together!!
I think I need to do this more often!

Thanks for taking time to stop in on your weekend!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
