FingerFood's Theme Weeks: Sparkles and Celebration

Howdy, folks!  I'm a week behind in FingerFood Themes!  So I have two for you today.  I have Sparkles and Birthday/Celebration.  

The first mani is Sparkles.  For some reason, I had a hard time coming up with anything for a sparkly mani!  I think I had too many ideas rolling around in my head and I just couldn't settle on just one. I wanted to try these little stencil things I had, but they were so fragile they broke as I tried to put them on my nails!  The only one that I managed to use was the little heart.  You can see it on my pinkie finger.  I wanted a set of 3 on my thumb but it didn't work.  So I decided to take one of my striper polishes and drew the blue heart that's on my thumb.  

To finish off the sparkles, I used my TipToe Udder the Rainbow to cover all my nails with a pretty, holo glitter.  

The polishes I used were:

PYH Angel Cow as a base coat.  It's a holo white polish with total opacity in 3 coats, though 2 may do.
PYH TipToe Udder the Rainbow.  A rainbow, holo glitter polish great over any light colored polish so it pops!
PYH Striper in Pasture Skies was used to make the heart on my thumb
Zoya Blaze was used on the little heart on my pinkie.

Next, I have my Birthday/Celebration mani.  I wasn't sure there was anything to celebrate then I remembered my kit-dren (kitty children) are turning 1yo old on 9 and 10 February!!  Not to mention, my daughter will be 25 on the 10th as well.  25!  Wow, do I feel old....

Here are my four kitties in their party hats!  From the back:  Zenobia, Nefertiti, Osiris and Anubis.  Anubis had his back to me. As you can see, he is the king, at least he thinks so!

Again, I was stuck for ideas! I just started with a base color and let the colors guide me and what you see is what I ended up with.  

The polishes I used are:

Wet n Wild Metallica
Shany polish pens which have no color names! 

I usually do a lot of my nail art with very small paint brushes but I was having an unusually bad night with my hands and my tremors.  The polish pens allowed me to get a little more control over what I was doing. 

So, here you have it!  2 manis in 1 blog!  I'll try to get better with this.  I've also been trying to get some new polishes into my shop.  I have all but 3 new polishes available.  Actually everything is available, just shoot me a message!  I'll hook you up with whatever polishes you would like!  Polish Yer Hooves polishes of course!!

Polish Yer Hooves can be found on Etsy here.

Until the next!   MOOO!  Leigh Anne
