While I am on my mat. leave, I had scheduled a bunch of post so I could take a step back from blogging in January and enjoy my newest little one. All was find and great, except for my newest little bundle decided to take his time to actually show up! As of writing this on January 7th, I'm still waiting for his arrival... and I was due Jan 1st... revised from my original due date of Dec 23rd. So needless to say I am feeling a bit tired of being pregnant!
When my friend Marta, inquired as to my well being, I responded with a picture my then-nail-of-the-day. Fast forward to the 7th, and I couldn't help but to notice her beautiful mani on Twitter/facebook used the same polish I had shown a few days ago, and I asked if she was interested in doing a twin post (since... you know... I had a little time on my hands), kindly she agreed!
EDIT: Since writing this post I've had my little boy! A healthy baby weighing 8lbs 2oz and 21 1/2 inches long born on Jan 7 (late at night, but the same day I wrote this post!). We named him Jakob Levi Kobal.
Today I am "butting" into my posting schedule to share a twin post with my friend Marta from Chit Chat Nails.
Over Christmas a lovely friend of mine gave me the Color Club Girl About Town minis, (and they're amazing! swatches coming soon!!) After swatching them, I played around a bit, and one creation to come out was the skittlette look below:
- This instagram shot by Rubyrominaa which I stumbled across on Pinterest.
- And this manicure, created by my twin-for-the-day Marta of ChitChatNails.
I realize they're not exactly the same, but I saw both manis before I created my own, and it would feel wrong not crediting them.
To create the above look I used:
Color Club East Austin
Color Club Wicker Park
Claires Silver Glitter Top Coat
That's it from me today! I'm keeping it light.
Thank you to Marta for being my twin poster for the day! I encourage you to go check out her great look!
Have a great day everyone, thank you for stopping by!
