Nail of the Day: Birthday nails!!! (e.l.f. Passion Pink and konad stamp)

It's my birthday today! (though I feel a little old turning 23) so I decided I needed some fun nails to mark the occasion :) I don't think I've worn Passion Pink yet, and I thought the bright colour would be perfect for my celebratory mood!






I think I could've got away with one coat of Passion Pink, but 2 coats gave perfect coverage and allowed the slight golden shimmer to show through :) I really love this colour- it's such a bright pink but the gold sheen gives it a softer edge.

I used stamper m17 (which I think is turning out to be quite a favorite of mine (there are bows, stars, flowers and hearts!) with e.l.f. black- using just the larger flower on most nails, and the little one at the base of my ring fingers. This made it a little harder to stamp- I had to scrape towards the middle to avoid colouring the small flower- but I like the effect it gives :)



m17 plate- I used the little flowers at the bottom of this picture :) 

e.l.f. Passion Pink and Black.

Whats on your nails? Do you have a favorite nail stamping plate? (I have birthday money and I want to spend it!)
