20 Candles

I turned twenty today. It's kind of momentus but disappointing at the same time. I'm no longer a teenager, I am a fully qualified 'adult' which I suppose is okay, but I sure am gonna miss being a teenager and getting away with all the things you can before you reach this age. Only five years ago, I was looking up at twenty-somethings and thinking, 'Woooooooow, look how old and responsible they are' but now it's me and I still feel like a 13 year old inside, but I suppose it'll always be that way.


So the nails are a cake and candles!

I used nail art brushes to freehand the candles and a dotting tool for the flames.

  2. Happy Birthday! Love the cute candles, sad to say I don't think I'd be able to fit enough for my next birthday on my nails...maybe both hands! When we start having to use our toes too that's when we should worry!

  3. Cute nails! Happy Birthday! I'll be 25 in July, and I still don't feel "grown up". I sometimes have to remind myself..Oh yes I'm adult and can make my own decisions etc. It's definitely not some automatic transition like we thought!
