Manicure for Roselynn of Manicured & Marvelous

Hi everyone! I have a special post for you today. Some of you may know Roselynn of Manicured & Marvelous; she’s a great blogger, nail artist, and all around cool person. She’s been having some health problems lately and I wanted to do something to cheer her up. I asked some other bloggers if they’d be interested in recreating her manis and everyone posting on the same day. So here we are!

Happy Birthday Barbie nail art manicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I decided to recreate Roselynn’s Happy Birthday Barbie! manicure. Well, I had a long list of manicures that I couldn’t decide from, so my husband helped me by picking this one. Let me tell you, I haven’t done such a super-girly manicure in…like, forever. LOL 😀

Alchemy Lacquers Elixir No. 10, ILNP Daisy Jane, ILNP Summer Crush, Emily de Molly Learned Doctors | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I’ve used 3 coats plus top coat of ILNP Daisy Jane on my pointer and pinky fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I started with 3 coats plus top coat of Emily de Molly Learned Doctors.

Barbie logo nail art | Be Happy And Buy Polish

On my middle finger, I created a gradient with Daisy Jane and Learned Doctors. Then using OPI Black Onyx, I attempted to recreate the Barbie logo, but I think I kinda failed. I did do the same nail art on my Cinderella hand, but the Barbie logo looked like a knight chess piece. haha!

Emily de Molly Learned Doctors, ILNP Summer Crush, Polished Vino bow charm | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I used straight vinyls from Polished Vino and ILNP Summer Crush on my ring finger, along with a bow charm from Polished Vino. BTW, I adore how the flakies of Learned Doctors coordinates so well with the micro flakies of Summer Crush!

Alchemy Lacquers Elixir No. 10 | Be Happy And Buy Polish

On my thumb, I used 3 coats plus top coat of Alchemy Lacquers Elixir No. 10. This was a small batch polish I was able to snap up and my-oh-my, am I glad I did!

The sun was weak when I took this picture, but you can kind of see the holographic sparkle of Summer Crush and Daisy Jane!
