Owls! using Top Shelf Lacquer & Babs Lacquer

Last week myself & several other bloggers & swatchers were asked to create a mani for Stephanie of 

So Much Goodness  in honor of her birthday.  I was thrilled be a part of this & after much thought I finally settled on the design.

The colors  I'm using today is Blue Hawaiian by Top Shelf Lacquer,

A turquoise blue crème with gold iridescent micro flakes.

Holo Topcoa by B.A.B.'s Lacquer

I started off by using 2 coats of Blue Hawaiin. Next I used 1 coat of Holo topcoat followed by 1 coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Topcoat. 

Once dried I took a water slide, placed it in water for 20 seconds then applied to my nail.

Aren't the owls cute?

I picked Blue Hawiian & owls because Stephanie love Tiffany blue & owls, so I figured this was perfect. Also this was the first time I've ever used water slides before! I can't believe I hadn't tried it sooner, I'm hooked! It was so easy anyone can do it. 

Blue Hawian is currently discontinued but be sure to check out Top Shelf's other colors at
