NOTW: Birks Blue Box Nails

For those of us who have grown up in Canada or at least spent a large chunk of our lives here, nothing makes a girl's heart skip a beat more than seeing a Birks Blue Box. Sure, Tiffany's is the more well-known "blue box", but when you're Canadian, you definitely have a soft spot for Birks and the role in its played in Canadian history.

I found these nails quite difficult to do because I wasn't using a nail polish striper to do the bows. I was using a new nail art brush that I had just purchased from Ebay and dipping it into nail polish. I found it hard to control the thickness of the strokes because I would get this giant globule of polish on the end of the brush making parts of the bow uneven in thickness. 

Colours Used:

China Glaze - Blue Sparrow (Neon)
China Glaze - IX
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Blue Me Away!
