Badass Birthday Nails

My birthday is this week and I'm taking a break from Christmas nails to do something that's more "me." I'm not sure exactly what side of me this is because I would normally paint something like a unicorn puking glitter, but this feels right too. I've found myself oddly drawn to the look of stiletto nails lately, but not so much that I can actually see myself filing down my own. I think I'll just fake it every now and then by painting on pointy tips.

When I envisioned these in my mind they were matte, but as usual I can never leave well enough alone so I also have a shiny version. Which ones do you like better?

I love that the black rhinestones look like tiny buttons on my fingers. Random fact #582- I absolutely love buttons and sometimes can't resist buying jars full at antique stores. I've got on two coats of Spoiled, Only in Creams. I used the brush from the bottle of LA Colors, Black to freehand the tips. I'm pretty impressed they came out as straight as they did. I added black rhinestones from Born Pretty and finished it off with NYC Matte Me Crazy and then later Sally Hansen Dries Instantly.

And of course there was birthday cake. I call this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake. I combined a couple different recipes I liked to make one super mega extra delicious cake.
