Anniversary Mani & Awards

Hi cuties! I can't believe tomorrow will be my one year wedding anniversary! My how time flies. To help mark this special weekend I wanted to do a mani with my wedding colors. I have been saving Essie Turquoise and Caicos just for this occasion as Polish Hoarder Disorder pointed out that it's an exact Tiffany Blue. My colors were Tiffany blue and fuchsia. I used three coats of Turquoise and Caicos, it's a sheer cream but covered nicely. I added one coat of China Glaze Fast Forward before I went to work. I later added the adorable bow image from konad plate m56.

I used Nicole by OPI's Love Your Life with baby pink hearts for an accent on my index fingers. It's a clear base with pastel glitters and these larger hearts (which are difficult to get out of the bottle). I added some sparkle with some fuchsia rhinestones and sealed with another coat of Fast Forward. I absolutely love it, I do have to play with the bow image in the future since my nails are pretty small.
