Fun Friday Featuring a Cupcake Manicure!

Good morning my fellow lacquered lovers!  I realize that this whole week had "fun" manicures but today's manicure is extra special and this blog post is dedicated to someone awesome!  I've been at my job for over 2 years now and one of the best parts of it is I get to see my "work wife" Anoush every day!  She never fails to make me smile, she's an awesome person to be around (and she makes me coffee!) and I just love getting to hang out with her every day!  It helps that she loves nail polish as well and it's always fun when she comes over for a polish date or when I bring nail polish in for work for her to play with. Needless to say, we're very close!  Since today happens to me the lovely Anoush's birthday (Happy birthday Anoush!) I decided to do an extra special manicure for her!  She's an awesome baker and she loves glitter so I had to find a way to combine the two, so here is what I did for her!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!







CUPCAKES!  This was my first try at a cupcake manicure and I think it came out pretty cute!  The base is one of my favorite polishes, Deborah Lippmann Forget You, a black jelly packed with multi colored glitter!  Then for the cupcake, the base is Zoya Robyn with stripes of Essie Borrowed and Blue.  The icing is NARS Shiro-Nuri which is by far the most opaque white polish I've ever used!  Then lastly the cherry on top was from my Sinful Colors red striper and the sprinkles were Color Club polishes from the Poptastic collection whose name I can't remember!  It's a bit messy (and these pictures are pre-clean up) but I like my little cupcake!  Plus, you can never go wrong with a Deborah Lippmann glitter!

So happy birthday Ms. Anoush!  I can't wait to celebrate you and hope you like your special manicure!

What do you think of the cupcakes?  Have you done any fun Friday manicures recently?
