Happy Birthday Hubby

Today is my husbands birthday and my present to him this year is a 3 night city break to Prague. I booked it about 2 months ago and have struggled every day since then to not tell him all about it. I am so glad I managed to keep it a surprise as this is exactly the kind of grand gesture he deserves :-).

If I have got my schedule spot on you should be reading this post on Thursday whilst we are in Prague walking around Wenceslas Square, listening to buskers and browsing market stalls on the Charles Bridge and of course indulging in the local cuisine of pork and dumplings.

I created this cute balloon manicure by using Barry M Blue Moon as a base. In all honesty this colour is a bit of a pain and would take 4 coats for full opacity if you wanted to wear it alone. Luckily for me I always add nail art of some kind but this look still required 3 coats. I then free handed the balloons on with Barry M Cobalt Blue and topped them off with Barry M Blue Glitter. The balloon strings are created with Barry M Silver Foil.

On my thumb I painted the Czech Republic flag in honour of our trip to Prague. For this I used OPI MBSW as the base and then free handed the triangle with Barry M Denim and the red section with Barry M Bright Red.

We will be back on Sunday so I hope to tell you a little more about our trip and maybe include a couple of pictures.

Happy Birthday Craig (aka Mr LiPP, formerly known as Mr Lou is Perfectly Polished) :-)
