Hey There Polished People!
As you may or may not know (see my announcement nails here), I’m about 30 weeks pregnant with mine and my husband’s first child! We are, of course, very excited as are our parents since this is the first grandchild on either side of the family, but one little thing has been missing- we didn’t know the gender!! We had our standard 20-week ultrasound, but the baby wasn’t cooperating and we couldn’t find out what it was. Then we had an ultrasound a week later in my doctor’s office and SURPRISE! not cooperating, so we couldn’t tell. My doctor said she’d do another ultrasound at 28 weeks so a couple of weeks ago I went in, she said she was all set to do the ultrasound, I was in the exam room and a nurse came in and said my doctor had to leave for a c-section!! So needless to say, I was feeling like we were just never going to find out. I ended up looking into 3D ultrasounds, and found out that they’ll do a quick 2D ultrasound “gender check” for $75 so I called, had the scan on last Saturday, and I’m finally here to tell you that we found out and…
It’s A Girl!!!
How To Get These Nails:
- Base coat.
- Paint your nails with NUP French White, allow them to dry.
- Paint a stripe of each, SC Cinderella (blue), SC Purple Diamond and ChG Naked (pink) onto a makeup sponge, overlapping slightly.
- Dab the makeup sponge with the polish on it onto your nails, moving slightly up and down to blend the colors a little.
- Do steps 4 and 5 for each nail.
- Repeat steps 4-6 once or twice until your gradient is exactly how you like it and the polish is opaque enough.
- Apply a layer of ChG Fairy Dust for some extra sparkle!
- Top your nails with Seche Vite and admire your pretty, girly nails! 🙂
It feels sooo good to finally know that it’s a girl! I felt like I was paralyzed in my decision-making until I knew what was cookin’ in there! 😉 For my “It’s a Girl!” nails, I just wanted to come up with the prettiest, girliest nail design I possibly could and although I think these are a little plain, so I feel marginally lame, I absolutely love them!! I just love how each of these three pastel polishes have their own shimmer, and then the ChG Fairy Dust just adds a little scattered holographic sparkle and brings it all together. I wore these nails for like 5 days, because I loved them so much! I have some awesome nail polish friends who are sharing my exciting news today by doing baby girl nails along with me. They teased me forever about it being a unicorn baby since it wasn’t showing itself, so I’m expecting some unicorn nails. 😉 I think a unicorn would like the ones I did, don’t you?
