NAILS | Canada Day #CBBxManiMonday

Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday! I had a pretty chill day starting off with my birthday coffee from Starbucks, getting my 35 Sheet Mask Giveaway going and then preparing for birthday dinner with my mom and sister. I am also in vacation this week which really isn't going to be all that relaxing considering I decided to take some time off just to organize the beauty room and go through PR things that are so old now that it's not worth blogging about them. I have shown you guys the beauty room before and right now it's spilling over to our living room and bedroom which my husband is NOT a fan of so I need to blog, get rid of shit, and slow down for the next month or two. Then again, holiday stuff has been sent to my door in August so...

Today the girls and I decided to do our Canada Day manis for ManiMonday as back to back sets of nails felt a bit overwhelming. It is traditional to use red and white for Canada Day manicures, but after doing them 7 years in a row, I wanted to do something a little different so using the WhatsUp Nails Maple Leaf Decals I used for last year's Canada 150 nail art, I recreated the sponge gradient manicure in a more "messy" way though in retrospect, I wish I had stuck to one colour scheme.

For this manicure, I did my best to ONLY use Canadian brands in this manicure with only one out of seven polishes being American because no one makes a glitter quite like China Glaze's Fairy Dust!
