Birthday nails

Guess what? I went to bed last night, and woke up a year older. The magic of birthday, just like that and you are no longer as young as you thought :)
Don't know if you remember my birthday nails last year, I still love the idea but want to do something different this year. A little darker and more subtle, and I think I love this just as much.
I wanted a purple base that shines through the glitters, so I used Orly Purple Velvet. It is matte, but it doesn't really matter in this case.
The star glitters I chose was Cult Nails Captivated, totally birthday worthy. It has a light orange base, which lightens the purple base a little and makes it look more like a plum/ maroon shade, with the orange flakes floating around. Loving it!
On the accent finger is OPI Save Me, another awesome glitter shade. Multi coloured bar glitters and fine silver shimmers, just look at it in the bottle!
I'm disappointed that I couldn't show you how great these 2 shades are. If you have them and haven't worn them yet, do it now.
Glitter galore, isn't it? What did you wear for your birthday nails (or what do you plan to wear, if it's coming up)? I need some new ideas.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. It was rainy here but I guess the grass and flowers needed that. It feels a little odd posting a NOTD on Monday. I did "gift" myself with stuff over the last week or two, mostly clothing, jewelry and purses. And nail polish, of course. A birthday at this age only means one thing - a very proper excuse to shop lol.
It also feels odd that this is my first birthday spent being single. Bitter sweet. Squirt and I are going out for dinner tonight, playing low key.
Have a great day, everyone! Happy birthday for all the Leo out there.
