My 33rd Birthday in Las Vegas!

Icing, Twisted Fantasy. 2 coats over:

Sinful Colors, Rise & Shine. 1 coat.


Do you ever feel the need to just be spontaneous and drop everything to go have some fun?!? Well, that's what my husband and I did for my birthday. Even though I don't have much time to take off during tax season I happened to notice that my boss didn't have me scheduled last Friday and Saturday so the hubby and I drove up to Vegas thursday night after I got off work. We spent all day Friday walking around Vegas and then ended the night with some roulette and some tequilla shots. It was pretty awesome. We spent Saturday morning recouperating and then drove home so I could go to work Sunday morning. Ah, the life of a Tax Pro. :-)

I wanted to do something celebratory with my nails so I settled on Icing's Twisted Fantasy; a rainbow of confetti glitter in a sheer teal blue base. It's very sheer even at 3 coats so I used undies of Sinful Colors' Rise & Shine. Rise & Shine is a very pretty teal green; an easy 1 coater. It has some subtle shimmer to it too. I didn't get a chance to photograph Rise & Shine alone but I hope to show her to you real soon. As you can see the glitter can be a bit sparse and random in Twisted Fantasy, but I love all the different colors they used in here and it actually dries pretty smooth to the touch; not too gritty at all. I used a coat of Gelous and then Seche Vite for a high gloss finish.

At Coyote Ugly in New York, New York you can get their 'Ugly Stick' filled with your choice of alcoholic beverage; I went with Strawberry Margarita. This was my 2nd one... Tee Hee! I love that it says 'Misbehavior Encouraged'.

I forgot my digital camera at home and my cell phone battery had died so I borrowed Burt's cell phone to snap this crappy shot. I couldn't beleive what I was seeing... a Konad Nail Art booth in Excalibur. However, I'm having a heck of a time finding out if they are cruelty-free or not. I asked the gal at the booth but she wasn't sure. :-(

I bought myself a lovely birthday gift; a black clutch studded with gold spikes and crystals from Marshall Rousso. It's absolutely stunning; the coolest bag ever. I hope to take a picture of it soon. It was a wonderful trip; even though it was short. Sunday back at work was pretty rough but it was so worth it! I hope you all had a fantstic weekend just like me!
