My Easter Mani. and Happy 13th Birthday to my Morris Cat!

HAPPY EASTER! I hope you've all had a wonderful day. Did you do anything special today? I went to church with my family and then we all had a nice yummy lunch. My parents still give me an Easter basket so I got a basket full of awesome Easter candy. I absolutely LOVE Easter candy. It's my fav. :-) I've been relaxing pretty much the rest of the day. My husband and I, ended up with our beagle at the ER vet yesterday, for five hours. He's fine now thank goodness. I was so worried about him. Anytime one of my fur kids gets sick, I worry so much. They are my babies. All is well now though.

I did a skittle mani. for Easter. I used two of the new Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polishes. Blue-Away which is a pale baby blue and Pink Blink. PB is a light baby pink. I was really surprised by how well they applied. I was all ready for them to be streaky since they are pastels. However, they weren't at all. I also LOVE the brushes on the Insta-Dries. They cover my nail in almost one swipe. I could have def. gotten away with one coat of these, but I did my usual two.

I also used two polishes from the Elf spring collection. Blue Mist, which is def. not blue, but a mint green color, and Lilac which is pastel purple. Both of these also applied well, and I used two coats each.

The last color I used is China Glaze Lemon Fizz. A yellow pastel. Application was a little streaky, but really not too bad at all. I used two coats.

I then used one coat of Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure over top of them all.


Without Hidden Treasure.

Close Up's with HT.

Also, today is my Morris cat's 13th birthday! I found him 12 years ago (he was one when I found him) in a dark park, took him home, and fell in love with him.♥♥♥♥

    Lucy...My dog is doing much better! :-) Thanks for asking. My pets are my babies, and when they get sick, I worry so much. I'm sorry about your mom. I'm sure that's really hard. *HUGS* My mom just turned 70 so I worry about her as well. Worry,worry,worry! I swear, sometimes that seems like all I do! ;-) I'm glad you got some yummy candy though. I love Easter candy! What kind did you get?

    Prettyfulz...Thank you so much! I will def. give Morris a kiss and pet from you! :-)

  12. I have Colorama Shimmer Girl, which is very similar to Hidden Treasure, and I never would have thought to put it with pastels, but this mani is gorgeous! I'll have to try it.
