Meet the Parents take 2 and Purple Birthday Nails

:) Josh is one of the lucky people who have two fantastic families. I was blessed to meet one side of them last Monday (I blogged about it!) and yesterday I was able to meet his other side! It was a grand family get together, with a ton of his aunts, uncles, grand parents and cousins. Everyone was so sweet!! So for the occasion I decided to paint my nails in happy southern girl colors :P I used two of my new polishes! I feel like the combination is similar to Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday in more muted tones :)

I used two coats of Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, which is just the prettiest shade of lilac purple I've ever come across: (please excuse the messy paint job, i was in a hurry to get ready to meet up with Josh!)
I then added a few coats of NYC Starry Silver Glitter. I liked this polish a lot, but it was EXTREMELY difficult to get the large glitter out of the bottle or to stay on the nail when spreading it out. Putting on this top coat of glitter took me about 15 minutes :( I'll have to experiment with ways to get better results with the glitter next time!! I finished off the mani with 1 coat of SV.
I wore a sweet little Hollister sundress with these nails and it pulled together perfectly for the event!
And I know since I blog about him so much, you all would like to have a face to put to the name! Here's Josh and me on his Birthday on Friday :)
And here!!! are the delicious sugar cookie candy bars I made for his family's bbq! They were super yummy and everyone loved them!! Another fantastic recipe from my new cookie book :)
