Magic Rainbow Cake!

Happy birthday to meeeeee! 😀

I did my nails twice today, because rules are a human construct and I’m an anarchist.

Birthday cake!!! I used two of my favorite polishes for this mani, Spellbound Nails Upelkuchen for the cake batter base and the oh-so-yummy Essie Mink Muffs for the chocolate icing.

Then for the second mani, I started with a base of Boii Cosmetics Blindfolded. I’m pretty disappointed with this one, as the coppery-red shimmer that was so apparent in the photos on Boii’s website is hardly visible in this at all—I purchased this to satisfy my lemming for OPI Peel Me A Gobi Grape and I was left severely wanting. I might have gotten a bad bottle, and to be completely fair, I didn’t bother trying to return this for a refund. But its formula was flawless and it covered in one coat, so I’ll definitely give it due credit there!

Then I threw on one of my holy grail polishes, Nfu Oh 51. This is the ultimate in classic color-shifting pigments and flakies. Shown is one coat over Blindfolded.

Its color-shifting pigments and flakies go all the way from red, to gold, to green, to blue depending on the angle of the light. It’s always difficult to catch photographs of the shift! One day I’ll perfect my methods, haha.

I feel like you could franken this by combining Girly Bits Shift Happens, Girly Bits Thud!, and a purple jelly. Someone should try it!

That’s it for today! Thanks for swingin’ by. I’m gonna go have some real birthday cake now. 😀
