With the stupid, never-ending, snow-dumping, blind-rage-producing winter we've had that is still showing NO signs of leaving, I thought it was incredibly inappropriate that we still had to spring forward last weekend. I mean, how mean is that?! SPRING forward? To what? More snow? Ice storms? White-outs?

*grumbles and mutters and dreams of warmer, coat-free times*

Anyway, after I threw what will hopefully be my last weather-inspired-mini-tantrum, I decided that I'd start faking it until spring decides to grace us with her presence. So, I went to my polish rack to peruse only the brightest and cheeriest colours.

Here's what I decided to use:

Zoomed in:
Outside, no flash

Two coats of Monaco on all fingers except pointer, which has two coats of Too Yacht To Handle. Then, I did two coats of magic cake over top, followed by two coats of top coat because the larger, pink hex bits have spiky sides. 

Monaco came in the March Julep box and it's the prettiest, brightest royal blue of all time. I just LOVE how the neon bits from magic cake really POP out against it. Nicely done, Julep!

  1. Oh man oh man....all the winter! But the springy manicure is so so pretty!! In fact, it's making me think that maybe just mayyyybe I'm going to paint MY nails royal blue today!

  2. hahah I can always count on you for a laugh! I definitely agree though, I'm soo over winter! Love the nails! Too Yacht to Handle is so pretty! And Magic Cake does pop lovely against Monaco. :)

  3. I loooooove these colors together! And Magic Cake (the name of that polish makes me want to EAT ALL THE POLISH) was an excellent choice to accompany this. I think I might want to go out and buy that CG polish too...

    Also, is it just me or is there no linky tool on your post today?

  5. SUPER cute! I love the confetti accent, it looks like splattered paint! Where did you get it? I bet it would look AWESOME with black!

  6. & of course the mint green and blue look lovely :)

  7. Magic Cake was MADE to be paired with Monaco. That's a gorgeous combination....and forget Spring, that's 100% Summer! On a sunny way, on the beach, with a tropical beverage....*le sigh*
