My birthday manicure: Ulta3 - bouquet

Hi lovelies!

I had the day off from everything yesterday - work AND blogging because it was my birthday.  Hmmm, don't know how I feel about my birthday this year because I'm now 46 and well and truly closer to 50 than 40.  I know a lot of you are a lot younger than me so I hope that doesn't scare you off!   There I was, driving around with my new Smiths (well, the 'best of' the Smiths) CD playing loudly, thinking I'm gonna be a rebellious older woman and embrace my age!!!  Of course, thanks to my son (and the car radio) I'm not exactly living in a musical vacuum so I know who One Direction, the Biebs, Katy Perry and Carly Rae Jepsen et al are.  Enough of the rambling, right??  You're here for the polish!

I decided to wear one of my original favourite nail colours yesterday - something a little retro that reminded me of the late '80's to early '90's (that wonderful era of taffeta dresses, fuschia lips and electric blue mascara).  It had to be something fuschia pink and I found it with another cute little cheapy Ulta3.  Bouquet is about as fuschia as you can get, and it has that retro shimmer as well.  This was good to go in two coats and I added top coat for extra gloss.  This was the perfect loud manicure for birthday celebrations.

One of my birthday gifts was a new lens for my camera so look out for some better quality macro shots!  

Until next time.

  5. Happy Birthday! I'm in my 40s too, I'm hurtling towards 44, and I love the idea of being a rebellious older woman :)
    Gorgeous pink, it looked familiar so I had to rifle through my stash and I found a bottle of Bouquet right at the back of my Ulta3 drawer. Must be time to wear it again :)

  11. Ah I have just been catching up on your blog posts and I found your birthday post :-) So happy birthday again! And I had no idea who Carly Rae Jepsen was until a few days ago. Wow I'm out of the loop! D-= But dang, that song is so darn catchy! I love bright fuchsia pinks, it's one of my favourite colours :-)
