Happy Birthday

Hello! It's my birthday today and I am now 19 years of age :) While this means that I am now legal, there will be no wild celebration happening tonight. There's lots of studying to be done for this week so I'll be spending the night reading about DNA replication, boo :(


Glitter is always a go-to for birthday manicures. Last year I used one of my favourite glitter polishes, Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe. I decided to pull it out again this year but paired the dark jelly base with a blue jelly for an easy glitter gradient.


I started with American Apparel Redondo Beach on all of my nails. For the gradient I sponged on Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe in layers.


That beautiful glitter gets me every time! I guess this polish might become a birthday tradition :')


I also wanted to thank all of you who gave input about the new photo/post format I'm trying out. I really appreciate all of your comments and they've been very helpful! Have a good week! :)

  7. happy happy birthdayyyyy!

    i hope you find time to celebrate, despite the studying! ahhh dna replication.. i've studied that so many times during the course of my bio undergrad studies! it really helps to check out some YT vids so you can visualize how all the components work instead of memorizing all their functions (:
