3 Year Anniversary

Hey everyone! The bf and I's third anniversary of dating is closely coming (May 12th) =)♥ I'm super duper excited, except for the fact that, that day, we have class all day LOL. So instead, we're going to be celebrating tomorrow :)! Since it was our anniversary coming up, my procrastination made me want to do my nails and I didn't know what to pick so I asked him what color, he said blue, then I asked creme? glitter? shimmer? He said glitter. So I didn't really want to use blue glitters that I already had again, but I did include it differently & I hope you'll enjoy!!

The polishes have not made their debut in my blog except for one, so I'm killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
For my base, I have 1 coat of OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise from the Texas Collection over 2 coats of OPI Suzi Says Feng Shui. For my accent nail, I have Milani Gems, which is known to be a close dupe of Deborah Lippmann's popular Happy Birthday. I know Gems and Austin-tatious Turquoise have been out for a while, but I haven't been able to use them  yet so here's their debut. I recently got Gems as I browsed my Duane Reade because a lot of the times nail polishes come really slow in my area. :( But I am still happy to be able to get my hands on it, since I didn't want to dish out $18 for Happy Birthday. I also used Gems as a "celebratory" accent to highlight that there's a reason for a celebration, haha!

At first, I was planning to use Austin-tatious Turquoise by itself but I didn't like the sheerness of the polish even after 3 coats so I found Suzi Says Feng Shui which seemed like a close base-ish to Austin-tatious Turquoise. 

I hope you enjoyed and happy polishing! :)
