Happy Birthday to Me! Birthday Cake Mani

Sooooo, July 2nd was my birthday - I am now a 23 year old nail polish fanatic! I knew for a while that I wanted to do nails based on funfetti cake, because that became a little family tradition for my birthday and I always asked for it. So when my roommate Andrew offered to bake me a cake, of course I asked for funfetti!

Dots - I mean funfetti - GALORE!!! 

This mani was done on top of Sinful Colors - Social Ladder that I showed you here. Unfortunately my topcoat dragged some of the color. :/

Here's the cake Andrew made me! NOMS! The choices for icing were vanilla, chocolate, pink vanilla, and blue vanilla. BLUE FTW!!!

When I was showing these to William, Wonderbread popped into my head. It does kind of remind me of it! :D

Another thing I thought was funny was that as I was going through my Nail Blogs feed on my Google Reader, I saw a post from Fingers Polish Mania with nails that are pretty similar to mine! I already had this mani planned out before I saw her post, but I think it's crazy that we did pretty similar manis without even meaning to!

And this was all possible because William got me a nail art set for my birthday! Thanks Will! XD

I'm glad Social Ladder held up for six days and that I didn't try this mani before he surprised me with the set. It has 15 nail art brushes and 5 double-sided dotting tools. I can't wait to try the brushes out too!

The two missing tools are the dotting tools I used for this mani. But just think of all the possibilities!

Om nom bottle shots! For the dots I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Blue Me Away!, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri - Lightening and Borghese - Raspberry Sorbetto.

Thanks for looking! I have yet *another* addition to this mani to show you soon!
