BFFForever Nail Art

I found my salty soulmate on the internet. Cate from @allthegreenpolish is my grouchy-pants bff forever. A few weeks ago she sent a picture of the top she was wearing, saying that it would make a good manicure. I happened to be nekkid-nailed at the time, so I made it happen. Somehow, I accidentally made birch paper nails at the same time.

It honestly looks nothing like her top. The blue I used was the right color...but the wrong opacity. Oh well...I still kinda like it. We were supposed to do "bfftwinzzzz nails"* but she flaked like a flake. Go visit her on instagram and give her hell for me. In the meantime, I'll wear my bffforever/birch nails alone...

*Update! She didn't leave me hanging. Peer pressure FTW!

  3. You didn't even have to say anything and I was like "Oh wow, those birch trees are great." :P Speaking of birch, the first smartphone I bought, I texted my husband about someone bi*ching about something or another and it corrected to "birch". Made no sense but I laughed like a loon. :P

  7. Don't you love when you can use the interwebz for good, like pressuring a bestie into doing things? Cute idea!

  12. These turned out really pretty! The first time I read this post your friend hadn't done her nails yet, so I'm glad to see now that you didn't have to wear your nails alone. I would totally be the one to suggest twinsie nails and then forget, which is exactly way I've never done them with anyone yet :P
