Nail Polish-aholics Anonymous Anyone?

if there's NOT a place like that.. there sure needs to be!!!

I have just spent $200 today!!! :/

now, granted, some of it was for my Instagram contest/giveaway that I've got going on..
& some of it was for an AWESOME nail mail that I'm about to send out!! ;)

but still.. just on nail polish, for myself, I spent.. $92.20!!!!
& they were ALL indies (except for 2.. a refill of my favorite polish China Glaze "Atlantis" & a bottle of OPI's "The Living Daylights")


oh well, what can I say?
I haven't been able to buy ANYTHING in like 14 or 15 WEEKS!!!
this is making up for it ;)

who else has this problem??? lol

my baby boy is FOUR!!!

so, today is, my son, Ty's FOURTH birthday!!!!

it took me a while to decide what I wanted to paint for it..
not to mention that Ty gave me guidelines.. he said I had to use brown, black, green & white, & that I had to paint "him blowing out his candles"!! haha

after contemplating for a while, I finally narrowed it down to 2 design ideas:
**a few of his favorite TV characters on each nail
**the word "FOUR" written all cool (one letter on each nail)

but I was still struggling to choose one, because
on one hand, the characters are cool, & he would love them, but would it say "birthday"? would people have to ask why or would they just be able to look at it & know?

then, on the other hand.. the colorful & funky "FOUR" design, with ballons & confetti would be pretty self explainitory & would scream "birthday".. BUT it just seems generic & unpersonal!!

but then.. I got the GREATEST idea!!!
to COMBINE BOTH designs!!! :)

I am very happy with the way these nails turned out..
& Ty loves them! so that's all that matters!! ;)

without further adieu..

& just incase you may not know who one (or any) of these characters are:

index: Poppy Cat
middle: Caillou
ring: Blue (from Blue's Clues)
pinky: Super Why

& of course my thumb is Ty, blowing out his candles ;)

when I showed them to him, he said:
"that's not me!"
me: "yes it is.."
Ty: "well, it's not perfect! it looks kinda weird"

haha I love him! ;)
but I did end up realizing that I didn't paint a nose on him lol
oh well.. it's still cute!!! ♥♥
