Birthday NOTD!!!!

Standard

Yes, so today is my birthday!!

I always love wearing purples so I chose some of my recent acquisitions.  Gold works really well with purple so here’s the royal manicure!

  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Cruising – a semi-matte pale gold
  • Zoya Petra – on ring only, a midtone smokey purple cream with OPI Mad As A Hatter – multicoloured glitter in a clear grey base
  • Pedi – Zoya Neeka -darkened smokey purple with silver microshimmer

Laters! :)
