Laid-Back 31 DC: Cheer Yourself Up Mani

The theme for today is a "cheer yourself up mani" and I'd say this does the job. I don't have a go-to manicure that I paint when I'm sad or low on inspiration, at least not yet. That means my "cheer me up mani" is going to be something different every time and I like it that way. Rainbows, glitter and cheesy holiday themed nail art... how much better can it get?

I finally got to use the glequins I ordered from Born Pretty recently. If you don't know what glequins are yet be sure to check out this post by The Nailasaurus.

This manicure used a ton of colors (13 plus base coat and two kinds of top coat).
Blue background- Wet n Wild, I Need A Refresh-Mint
Gold- (just two coats- great coverage) Sally Hansen Complete Manicure, Golden Rule
Large gold glequins- Born Pretty layered on top of the small gold glitter
Red- Spoiled, Hit The Brakes
Orange- Wet n Wild, Sunny Side Up with Zoya, Gabrielle on top
Yellow- Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, Expres-so Yellow
Green- Spoiled, Permission to Proceed
Blue- China Glaze, Shower Together
Purple- Love & Beauty, (missing label)
Black- Wet n Wild, Black Creme
Grey shading on the pot o' gold- China Glaze, Recycle
Light grey background (thumb)- Sally Hansen Complete Manicure, Ion
White cloud- Finger Paints, Paper Mache

And since this post is all about cheering myself up I couldn't resist adding this adorable picture of a baby goat. I can't help feeling that I would have loved to study anatomy much more in school if it was more like this.
