Mint Fizz and Flowers

Hi everyone! I hope December has been treating everyone well so far! It's a Monday but I can't help but be happy that this week is here. It's my birthday at the end of this week and I am that much closer to my vacation at the end of this month!! I always tend to be a little bit down around my birthday but I'm not going to let that happen this year. Anyone else get like that? I can't really explain the phenomenon.

Oh, did you notice my new blog header? I've been wanting to do that forever but I had to wait till I had accumulated enough posts so that I had a few good manis to choose from. Anyway, I am now posting the update to my Ulta Whatever Floats Your Moat mani that I posted last time. I added a coat of Revlon Mint Fizz, a semi sheer electric blue mint scented polish with blue microflakes in it. It seemed to go with Whatever Float Your Moat so well! It toned down the power of the blue just a bit but added this amazing shimmer and sparkle to it!

Next I added some roses on the ring finger with Love and Beauty Aqua. I've featured this polish a few times before. I think I love it! The flowers were inspired by Raggio di Luna. She does so many freehand flower manis that I just finally had to try my own! I think she does hers with acrylic paints and a nail art brush but I did these by plopping a drop of polish on the nail and drawing into it with a toothpick to take away polish along those lines. Once I get some brushes, I plan on using those to expand my drawing repertoire. So, should I do more flowers in the future? I think I will.

I've been lately getting into taking pictures with my phone and using various programs on the phone to touch it up a bit. I have a separate Instagram account where I usually post those but I thought I'd post a few of them here and there on this blog for your viewing pleasure. This is a willow tree in front of my parent's house. Eerie, isn't it?
