NAILS | Flowers with a Sprinkle of Glitter #ManiMonday

It is good to be back home in Vancouver where it actually felt like Spring this past weekend! My husband and I were visiting family in Montreal and we got back very late Friday night. We decided to take transit back home to save money on a $60 cab ride only to find ourselves on the seabus with everyone who went to the Canucks game. While I am fine on a plane now, the moment I step off, I feel like total crap. I feel bloated, tired and just disgusting and though we tried to call a cab, none showed because it was freakin' Friday night. I won't lie, I may have cried on the way home because I had the stomach flu and was amazed I even survived the flight without getting sick (thanks to some serious medication and Gravol). I am still feeling a little off, but I am back to work today and hoping that it's only going to get better from here!

I am starting this month's series of Mani Mondays with a truly Spring-like manicure featuring the new CND Creative Play Playland Collection! If this collection doesn't snap you out of that winter funk, I don't know what will because it's got brights, neons and glitters!

Seeing as how my Born Pretty order from December finally arrived while I was away, I had forgotten what I had ordered and saw these pretty pink flower water decals in my order. I was totally feeling these flowers and had to work them into my manicure so I started off with three coats of Candycade* as it was quite sheer, but would be PERFECT for French manicures and finished with just one coat of the pink glitter Look No Hands*.

For my flower nails, I applied two coats of Amuse-Mint*, a stunningly opaque turquoise, and then a coat of quick drying top coat. I applied the water decals and smoothed out any bumps with a wet nail art brush and let the nails fully dry. I sealed everything in with a coat of CND Creative Play Top Coat* and then sat down and watched Dave Chappelle's new Netflix series and then typed this post.
