A ‘Baby Elle’ inspired nail look

Hi, I’m Nidia, and I have a little beauty blog called Lit From Within. Thanks, Brittany, for inviting the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida to help you out while you spend some time with your little Baby Clumps!

All of us BBCF members have been awaiting the arrival of Baby Clumps, who we know now is named Elle. I wanted to do a little nail art as homage to our newest member. It was a celebration of Indies on my blog this January, so I wanted to bring a little of that celebration to Clumps of Mascara!


This is PolishTBH Tiny Dancer, a sheer iridescent pink with bright blue squares and small glitters. I couldn’t think of a more appropriate polish – it’s soft and pretty, and I’m sure Elle was dancing around in Brittany for these last few months!


Tiny Dancer had a great formula, and I was pleasantly surprised by the pink shimmer. With two coats, there was still a little visible nail line, but I loved the sheer softness of it so much, I didn’t mind. I knew some nail art was coming, anyway!


I used Essie Mink Muffs and a nail art brush to make some Baby footprints! I learned the technique from watching a YouTube video. Basically, you make a little bean shape and add toes.


Few things are cuter than baby toes!


And a little personalization for Baby Clumps! Congratulations, Brittany, I’m so happy for you and your little family. I wish you all every happiness, and look forward to getting to know Elle.

    You are right! Few things are cuter than baby toes! You nails are adorable. I always thought that nail polish was a great baby shower “favor” and this polish with it’s pink and blue would be a perfect one.
