OMD Rather Awesome Challenge: Day 20 3D Nails

Good morning all! I have a very special manicure for you today. Remember yesterday, I said that I had family obligations that prevented me from getting my manicure uploaded in a timely manner? Well, yesterday would have been my mom’s 75th birthday. My dad had decided to reinter (re-bury) my brother beside her. He died when he was just 3, before I was born. He has been in the children’s section of a different cemetery, and since my mom died, we, as a family wanted to have him beside mom. So that’s where I was yesterday morning, and in honor of my mom’s birthday and the re-internment, I used the special polish that You Polish had created for me.

Warning: lots of pretty pictures ahead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I started off with 2 thin coats of Man in White from “new-to-me” polish maker, Carpe Noctem Cosmetics. (Note: Man in White is no longer available, but Emily from CNC has said that Pro-Amico is the dupe she created.) Man in White is simply stunning!

Isn’t that simply stunning?! I’m so stoked I was able to score a bottle of this polish before it sold out. I then used 2 thin coats of Lucy’s Sparkle over the top, then used Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food on top of that:

I then used HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat to shine it up:

Finally, to give it a 3D look, I used 3 studs from my Winstonia July grab bag on my middle nail:

So, what do you think? I love every step of this manicure, and I cannot wait to use Man in White again! Be sure to check out the other manicures for today by clicking here. Just an aside, I will not be doing the challenge tomorrow – tomorrow is “stamping” and I simply don’t do stamping, as I don’t have any supplies for it. ๐Ÿ™‚ But please stop by, I’ll have a cute pedicure for you tomorrow instead! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. What a nice thing to do for your mom and brother, I hope they are content resting next to each other for the rest of…well, forever. (Honestly I did not know re-interring was a common thing, did it involve special permits for anything?) I hope the day was special and not too sad for you.
    AND, NICE MANI, LADY!!
