Birthday Nails

Good morning everyone! Let me start off by saying the post title is misleading - it isn't my birthday! But, it WAS - a little over a month ago, lol. I turned 25! I apparently forgot to post these, and I found them on my computer and felt that they still deserve sharing. I absolutely LOVED how these nails turned out - I had enlisted help from the lovely ladies on Random Acts of Polish, because I wanted something special for my birthday nails, and they did not disappoint. I ended up combining a couple ideas they threw out, and came up with this:

I used: Manglaze Matte is Murder for the base, about a million random colors for the dots, and Pure Ice Sexy Mama for the glitter topper. I topcoated it to make sure it lasted through my birthday weekend, but I fully intended to mattify it - because I LOVE Matte is Murder in it's true form! :)

And here it is after using Butter London Matte Topcoat! I just LOVE chunky glitters mattified!

Close up of my thumb:

What do you think of my birthday nails?? Tell me about some manis that you've worn for your birthdays!
