Aqua and coral birthday nails for Danele! (And my blog anniversary!)

Hey guys! Today is my 1 year blogrelaunchiversary!! Basically that just means that one year ago after being in blog limbo for a year (this was a cooking/crafting/running/general mish mash blog years ago) I decided to relaunch and feature nails, swatches, tutorials and art! I hoped I would be where I am now but didn't think it would happen as quickly as it did! Thanks to everyone who has left encouraging comments and supported me along the way! I can't wait to see what this year has in store!

Coincidentally one of the amazing girls I've gotten to know through all this as a birthday today! So our little group decided to do a little tribute. Aqua and coral are some of her favorite colors :)
 More after the break!

This blog has lots of pics of the same mani, haha!

I'm also trying to find time to make more videos! I've barely gotten my feet wet since the holidays but hopefully I'll be able to do them more!
Here's a quick little video on how I made the chevrons with nail vinyls. Be sure your base color is super dry!!

Here's how I made the balloons. Even with a dotting tool I'm still not great at free hand nail art, I don't think that will ever change!

The colors I used are:
base (white) OPI Alpine Snow
teal: OPI Fly
coral: Essie Come Here!
gold: OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby
black: OPI Black Onyx.

These colors go so well together and really pop, we can see why she chose them for her wedding colors! Bright and happy!


  1. Gorgeous! I totally love this manicure, coral and teal are my FAVORITE manicure colors! And happy 1 year blogrelaunchiversary! I have my first one coming up in February, and I totally also didn't know what to call it, but you've inspired me so thanks! And Happy Birthday Danele!!!

  2. awww yay thanks again for being my friend!!
