Birthday flowers and polish presents

For my 60th birthday I wore this mani!
The base color is Chanel Suspicious 561 and I sponged my thumbs and upper parts of the other nails dripping downwards with Ciate Confetti. Then I painted the flowers with acrylic craft color and top coated with Seche Vite.
På min 60 års fødselsdag i fredags, havde jeg dette design på neglene!
Grundfarven er Chanel Suspicious 561 og jeg duppede tommeltotterne og den øverste del af neglene med Ciate Confetti. Derefter malede jeg blomster med akrylfarve og toplakken er Seche Vite.

I had a wonderful day, wonderful guests, perfect sunny weather, my husband prepared some amazing food for us all - an informal and relaxed day in the garden - just like I wanted it!
I got a lot of lovely presents, mostly money for polish and vacations - but the mail man also brought me highly unexpected presents - ohhh, I love that kind ;)

Sweet Vedrana sent me this wonderful parcel with a lemming of mine: Aura Inches 323 One Step too Early, a gorgeous true eggplant purple, 2 very pretty Don Juan One Coat polishes, beautiful ear rings and yummi chocolate!
If you do not already follow Vedrana's BLOG - you should, she shows her readers a lot of pretty polishes :)
Thank you so, so much Vedrana, for this unexpected and lovely parcel, it made me so very happy <3

The sweet Katarina from Edgy Polish sent me these wonderful polishes - 2 Bootie Babe's (the coolest and funniest bottles ever LOL) and 2 Glitter Gal - thanks a lot Katarina, as soon as I get better time I will swatch them!!

My dear friend Elena from PicturedTinsel sent me all these marvelous polishes, a lot of gems, those Milani's are sooo pretty, thank you so, so much Elena <3

Another totally unexpected parcel came from sweet Laura, that I have come to know trough Danish and Scandinavian nail polish groups and we also were in last years birthday group together. The Dumle's might/might not have been in a higher number before this photo;) and the polishes are the lemming K.B. Shimmer Snow Way, a pretty sheer yellow effect polish from PA and a Pure Ice in a favorite shade: magenta with blue shimmer, called Jamaica me Crazy.
I was so touched by this Laura, thank you sooo very much!!

  14. Happy b'day or as many say here's to another trip around the sun - not sure if you use that phrase over there (I am one of your lucky USA followers)...something about the red base here really makes these flowers pop! You are such a talented lady - thanks for all the work you do and share with so many of us in blogland!
