Birthday card nails

Hey everyone! Some of you may have noticed that there was no 'then and now' challenge yesterday, I really really didn't have time, I have so many exams coming up and I'm super panicking so I've been revising non-stop. It's not that I haven't been doing the work, I'm just struggling to keep up! So basically what I'm trying to say is that my nails are having to take a back seat at the moment whilst I put my focus into my work, which means no then and now nails until the 26th. I do have a couple of posts lined up, one of which is hopefully a guest post by a very lovely friend of mine, and I will try my best to do my nails away from the 'challenge', but I hope you understand if not!

Although, today is my birthday so of course I had to take a break from revision, and so it seemed like the perfect time to also do my nails.

These nails were based on a birthday card my mum gave me, there were quite a few designs on it so I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more based around it, and I didn't want to give any spoilers which is why there aren't any pictures of it haha.

I used Essie - Blanc as a base colour, and then I used a medium length striper and China Glaze - Electric Beat, and OPI - Who the Shrek are you? to draw on egg shapes, which I then filled in again with Essie-Blanc and a tiny detail brush.

I hope that you all decide to stick around and see what's in store after my exams, because I have plenty of lovely ideas lined up, I just have to wait until I have time! 

I hope you like these nails, time to get back to packing!
