Yesterday, after waking up to find out that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton had gone into labour early in the morning, I spent the whole day glued to Sky News, waiting for the birth announcement! After what seemed like forever, it was finally announced at 8.30pm that Kate had given birth to a baby boy at 4.24pm. I’m quite glad they kept everyone waiting a few extra hours, as I quickly nipped out to the Post Office at 4.20pm, and it would have been typical if I missed it after waiting all day! Huge congratulations to the Duke and Duchess! Baby Cambridge is yet to be named (officially anyway) but the other night I dreamt that Kate would give birth to a boy, which they named Alexander, so I put a £1 bet on it, at 66/1!
So, to celebrate the birth of the royal baby, I had to do some themed nails.
Obviously, as the baby was a boy, I went for blue, I used Nails Inc Kensington Park Road (quite appropriate as the Duke and Duchess will be moving in to Kensington Palace with the new Prince!) and over this I added Nails Inc Royal Arcade nail jewellery (also appropriately named!) For the Union Flag, I used Barry M Blue Grape, the white Models Own nail art pen, and Andrea Fulerton Stripe & Sparkle Ann. As the baby is a Prince, and third in line to the throne, I had to add a crown, and I used Barry M limited edition gold.
Now I’m just waiting for William and Kate to leave the hospital for the first glimpse of their bundle of joy (which will hopefully be named Alexander!)
