It’s my birthday! Help me decide on a manicure…

Birthday Outfit and MakeupToday is my birthday! Which gives me a perfect excuse to take a break from regular blogging.

I’m not a huge birthday person but this year I’m turning 30 and am super excited about the whole thing. My twenties have been great but I’m over being in my twenties at this point.

Tonight I’m going out with some friends to celebrate. I’ve already decided on a dress, makeup and shoes but as always I’m having a tough time deciding on what to do with my nails.

I’m planning on wearing a purple dress with black and white heels (though I might end up wearing just black or nude heels…).  For makeup I’m going with a metallic neutral eye using my new favorite eye shadow palette and a long wearing bright fuchsia lip (L’Oreal Infallible in Forever Fuchsia).

As far as my nails I’m just kind of stuck. I was thinking of perhaps doing a manicure with Essie No Place Like Chrome but that’s a bit boring. If I swap out the shoes I can do a fun leopard print or even some NCLA nail wraps (the white design…of course). Or maybe do combination and throw in some glitter? I just don’t know! But then again, I am a Gemini. We’re indecisive.

Please leave me a comment with birthday manicure suggestions! Clearly I need some guidance. I’ll make sure to do a post next week on what I end up wearing 🙂

  1. Wear silver or gold!

  2. black nailpolish would looks great with the dress hold ith with a shine black and matte black tips

  3. White dress, black shoes… I would go for contrasts and wear the “reddest” red polish I could find. But then, black/white/red is one of my favourite colour combinations. Happy Birthday! 🙂

  4. If you’re feeling bold you could pop it with lime green. It would look great against the dark purple. you could even do a neutral with a lime green tip or accent.

    I think the big 3-0 calls for lots of glitter!

  7. Definitely an 18k gold leaf top coat. You are worth it!
