It's A...

BOY!

Hello readers! I have some exciting news to share with you all today! I haven't posted this yet, so don't feel out of the loop, but we are expecting our 2nd child! We just found out it's a boy and I was so excited that I wanted to do special "boy" nails. I kept it simple with blues and white instead of designs for this one but I really like how it turned out!

The sun wouldn't come out today so this is an overcast picture.

I  used: 
A base coat of Cult Nails Get It On
2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow
A striper brush and each of these colors:
OPI Blue My Mind
Ulta Faded Blues
OPI No Room For The Blues
Nubar Night Sparkle 
1 coat of CDN Silver Sparkling Effect
Top coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast


And for anyone who wants to know more about the baby, read on:

We are 18 weeks this week, due mid July. We will name him Owen James and are all really excited to add a little boy to our family since we have Hailey (3 3/4yrs) now. He kicks and moves around all day but I'm loving it! Morning sickness is long gone so I'm enjoying this pregnancy! 

Here are 2 comparison belly pictures for you. First one is 8 weeks and then the next is 18 weeks. :) I can't wait for my belly to get bigger and bigger and bigger!


And here is one of our latest ultrasound pictures of baby Owen:

So that's my exciting personal news update for you all! Thanks for reading and sharing in our special week!
