Flashback!

I am turning 30 on Monday and this weekend I celebrated my birthday by having a flashback party.  I had my guests dress from a decade pre-millennium.  I, of course went from the 80's and made a manicure to match.  I'm attaching a picture of the dress I wore to show you the inspiration, but I cropped the photo ala Gossip Girl.  I'm a little private about my identity, but couldn't resist showing the dress.

The Dress:

With Flash:

Without Flash:

Left Hand Close Up:

The nails were base coat colored with China Glaze Liquid Leather.  I applied a purple glitter on top and then for the right hand applied square rhinestones for the "1980"  On the left hand circle rhinestones were applied first to adhesive strips you use to put on artificial nails and then on top of the manicure.

I love the nails but the flash off of the stones makes it hard to appreciate these beauties online as much as I did in person. Either way, great work!
