Belated Birthdayness (photo heavy)

So it was my birthday the other week & I'm not gonna lie it was fairly low key (for me). I'm noticing that happening a lot more with each passing year. But here's a few pictures from my week as I had a really good time!  The monday night thrown together last minute look. This was about the 4th lipstick I tried on.

She already had my trust so I let her work her magic! While we were waiting for the tint to take we were talking about threading and waxing and I told her about the debarcle with my last threading experience at Glow. She was gobsmacked and told me that

A work in progress

So I've been experimenting with nail art designs & techniques (in preparation for my upcoming course in college) & have posted a few below. However one of these is not like the rest. See if you can spot which one? Ps I've also had a go at creating my first frankenpolish. It's sort of a mauvey colour & once Mattified with my Gosh Matte Coat looked awesome with these silver geometric tips (excuse my dodgy lines) Whaddya think?! x
