I have been so looking forward to DAY 5/Skittles Day of the OMD Challenge! I don’t normally wear a lot of skittle manis, but I’ve been longing to try out my new Butter Londons (and all at once)! I have a cute story about these too…
My boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday this year. I couldn’t really think of anything until it hit me- I want some Butter London! How can I not own even one bottle of that stuff? So I showed him the website and asked him to get me my very first bottle. Fast forward to the day of my birthday- he mentioned that he hopes the UPS truck comes. I’m thinking, ‘Greatttt… he ordered me a bottle last minute and it hasn’t arrived yet’. Then later we were sitting on the front porch and the UPS truck pulls out of the neighbor’s driveway and drives right past our house. I saw my bf’s face drop, like he was really disappointed. At this point I figure, OK no gifts I guess. But………. shortly after he comes downstairs with a big paper shopping bag filled with wrapped gifts! He fooled me pretty good. He got me 5 bottles of Butter London and each one was wrapped in a separate box which added to the excitement. That really blew me away! I told him that I only asked for one, but he got me five?! He said if every many tried to please his woman five times as hard then there’d be a lot more happy women in the world. He said it with a smirk on his face… but hey I’m not gonna complain!
My skittles mani consists of….
Yummy Mummy ♥ nude with a slight shimmer (2 coats)
Snog ♥ a super shiny raspberry and my favorite of the bunch (2 coats)
Cheeky Chops ♥ creamy bright yellow (needed 3 coats to eliminate streaking)
Cheeky Stamping Plate CH53 ♥ I LOVE MY BOYFRIEND stamp and Konad black polish
Keks ♥ vibrant blue (2 coats)
Scoundrel ♥ medium dusty purple (2 coats)
See you tomorrow! And here’s the link to the other designs for day 5:

Really pretty skittle! Love your stamping design too! Very appropriate for this manicure 🙂
hehe thanks- the I LUV MY BF stamp was just perfect for this one 🙂
Awwwwwwwwwwww, Iove me some BL, they are awesome, I only have two so far though 🙂 Maybe I should invest in some Cheaky plates…. haven’t tried those yet…
Fun and bright mani, and as always perfect outcome ❤
Thanks Marthe! I got a summer set of 20 cheeky plats and it comes in a cool holder/box. I think they work just as good as konad, and they’re rumored to have larger designs than other brands 🙂
oohhh, nice 🙂 I’ll def check it out 🙂 Thanks:)
These are gorgeous! What a great bf you have 🙂
Thank you! And I’m definitely keeping him! Whether he likes it or not buahahahaa
Wow, you have a really sweet bf. Those colors are awesome! I love that stamping, looks really cute. Great skittle mani 😀
Thanks Vic! I think it’s cool how he picked such an awesome array. But, he’s an artist… so I guess he likes paint just like we love polish lol
What an awesome guy! I’m so happy you’re on the Butter London train now, too. I hope you like them. Oh, and HAPPY BIRRRTHDAAAYYYYYY!!!
Choo choo!! I love em. And thanks- I had a wicked bday 🙂
Aw love this but I love more what he did for you. So sweet!
thanks… he’s def a keeper 🙂
omg! love the mani and your boyfriends line about the man pleasing his woman. I’m not a mushy person , it made me go awwww!
Haha- I didn’t mean to make you get all mushy! But I hear ya- it is pretty sweet 😉
Aww that’s so sweet of him! I’m glad your birthday turned out so well! And that stamp is so perfect 😀
Awww thanks! I’ve been wondering about your my little pony nail series. They are the cutest! and I’m wondering what made you get into them?
Thanks! I started watching My Little Pony after a bunch of my “brony” friends introduced me to it. I guess I’ve always liked animated shows, and it had a nice visual style and a surprisingly good story for a kids show. I feel so guilty now for not keeping up with the nails for the past couple of weeks, but I was so excited about getting some manis done ahead of time for the OMD challenge ^-^;
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! That was so sweet of your boyfriend to get you such a nice gift – the colors are great too! 🙂 ~maria
Thank you Maria!!
That stamp was absolutely perfect for this manicure 🙂 and the colours are gorgeous!
Awesome skittles and adorable story! What a great boyfriend!! I love your stamping too, so pristine and crisp!
I have been wanting Snog for so long it’s not even funny! This looks great, and I like Keks too. 🙂
Snog was so shiny! Even before topcoat! I hope you get your hands on some 🙂
Me too! 🙂
Ohhh what a sweatheart! I love your skittles and your stamp is sooo great! Would there be a I love my hsb stamp?
Nope! Cheeky only allows us to love NY, nail polish or bf! What gives? Lol
There must be something about Butter London and boyfriends?! Mine have me three for valentines day probably because he was sick of hearing me prattle on about how pretty but expensive they were hahaha
Haha that’s awesome!!
