31dc2012 - day 13

Hello and welcome to Day 13 of the 31 Day Challenge - also known as MY BIRTHDAY!!!

However it is not a very happy birthday at the moment because we still do not have electricity at my house! OMG! And the power company keeps trying to tell us that there is nothing wrong in our area. So we have no idea when it is coming back. Living without power and hot water and the internet and television and a refrigerator is really getting old...

As you may have guessed, I am back at my dad's store, using his internet for my blog and other important things I had to catch up on, like school work! How frustrating.

Well, my birthday may be electricity-free, but it is not free of cute nails!
The theme for Day 13 is Animal Print which is perfect because I would likely be rocking animal print on my birthday anyway!


Tada! The big 22!


And a cupcake, of course!


Pink, leopard, cupcake, rhinestones. Perfect b-day mani.
I really enjoy the colors I chose for this leopard combo.


The base color is OPI - Panda-monium Pink, a nice light pink creme. The formula is kinda runny and it needs three coats but the color is cute so I can handle it.
I did the leopard spots (and cupcake details) with China Glaze - Rich and Famous.
The cupcake also has some purple sprinkles - China Glaze - Gothic Lolita.
My black polish of choice was Color Club - Where's The Soiree?


My right hand just does not like to pose for photos. Sorry for the awkward angles. But I have to show off my cupcake!


I can't believe I'm 22! I'm too old! Haha!


My mom helped me take this photo of both hands... Haha. She's not the best nail photographer but hey, she tried!

Well, that's all for today! Now I am off to school. Yes, school on my birthday. Cruel.

Hopefully tomorrow you will hear from me, from my own computer, in my own house, with my own electricity... Gah!
