Jedi Baby Nails!

Good morning, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well and you have had a wonderful couple of weeks! After a few days at the hospital, I went home with my second son, and I've been spending some quality time with my family. As much as I love the cuddles, I still miss my blog, and while I anticipate posts to be a little sporadic while I continue to get into the swing of things, I'm still around and occasionally getting my polish on!

For today's blog post, I wanted to share the manicure I ended up sporting at the hospital for the birth of the littlest Jedi. Let's check it out!

Polishes and Products Used:
Colors by Llarowe: That Bloo is Mine!
Girly Bits Cosmetics: D!ck in  Box and Push It
NailVinyls: Straights

Oh yes, dear readers, I DID wear those Girly Bits shades! I had originally wanted to do something a little more complex, but the time ran away with me and I could only handle so much when the contractions started. I still had not figured out how I wanted to paint my nails by the time I started having contractions, and it certainly distracted me from designing a nail art look! I quite liked the simplicity of this design, and all the nurses at the hospital loved the holo nails!

My poor middle fingernail ended up a little too short during filing: silly super-short nail bed! It felt odd to shorten my nails this much, but it was definitely a necessity with the tiny buttons and snaps I've been dealing with lately. They've grown a bit in the past almost three weeks, so I'm going to have to file them down again soon.

I hope you've enjoyed today's quick nail art post! Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

    1. I can't take lots of credit for that. This was pre-baby and I've done my nails once since when my MIL and husband were both around to watch the baby and the toddler. We were supposed to get family photos done, and it never happened anyway. Gotta redo them now for whenever we go! LOL!

    1. I NEEDED to have my nails done! My contractions were 9 minutes apart when I painted my nails so it distracted me during the down time. ;)

    1. I couldn't commit to anything in particular so I used the polish names to help me decide. They seemed rather appropriate given the circumstance. Hahaha!

  14. This is such a cute mani! I can't believe you managed to get it done while having contractions. I have cramps and it's enough to make me walk away from any mani lol.

    1. I was in early labor with my contractions 9 minutes apart when I painted my nails- enough down time to get a coat on! I definitely couldn't paint during the contractions; I'm not THAT crazy! LOL!
