wildflower nails

Hello All!

How's your week going so far?
I'm really excited about tomorrow! My work is having it's "Summer Outing" (i.e. get out of work at noon and day drink together) at Little Goat.  I've been to Girl and the Goat and it was amazing, so I can't wait to try some snacks at Stephanie Izard's Diner.

For this week's nails I went all floral!
I started out designing these nails for a SallyHansen contest.  For May, June and July they're having a nail art contest.  I missed May, but I thought I'd try for June and July.  The "theme" for June is "Liquid Mani-A: texture, shine, matte and embellishments"  So my plan was to add some rhinestones, highlight the flowers with glitter and paint a matte top-coat over them...
Well, I got as far as rhinestones.  I tried a matte top-coat and it just didn't look right.  Sometimes following a theme just doesn't work.
After doing the flower last week I was excited to try some more free-hand florals, and I think these turned out pretty nice.
What do you think?

Sorry i've been a little quiet these days.  Do you ever have those weeks where every night you come home completely exhausted? No matter how difficult or easy my day has been i'm just so tired at the end of the day.  I'm trying to get into a better sleeping pattern, and breaking out Geoffrey has really helped us sleep through the heat.

This week I've kept it simple with blue gingham and a little flower
Painting the flower was really fun and a lot easier than I had expected.
Have a great week guys!

Happy Alypalooza!!!

My birthday was on Wednesday and it's been a great birthday so far!  We had some wonderful friends in town on Monday and Tuesday and tomorrow night The Man and I are going out on a birthday date. I can't wait!

Here are this years Alypalooza nails:
There was so much going on this week that I wasn't able to do my nails before the big day, but it's Alypalooza so I've got plenty of time to celebrate!!
I'm really happy with how these turned out.  The thumb is a slice of cake (funfetti to be precise) and on the rest of the nails is a pink cake with number candles and party bunting! 
Have a great weekend everybody!!
Eat a sweet treat, be a couch potato and celebrate Alypalooza!
