Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day loves!

I hope you all had an amazing day celebrating, and if you're single (like moi) you can celebrate the way I did...with nail art!

I actually created this manicure this past Saturday but I knew it would be perfect for V-Day. Pink, hearts, polka dots? There's a little bit of everything in here.

I got a ton of compliments on this manicure too. I love the look on people's face when I tell them I did it myself. Never gets old...


For this manicure I didn't start with a base color. Instead I applied a clear base, let it dry then began drawing the stripes. For the stripes I used a nail art brush and the following polishes: Wet N Wild Candy-licious (bubble gum pink), Wet N Wild Tropicalia (bright medium pink), and Wet N Wild French White Creme. Afterwards I took my nail art brush and white polish and drew the hearts. I then outlined the hearts in black and used my dotting tool to create pink polka dots inside of them. Add a slap of topcoat and you're done!

In real life, the contrast between the two pinks is hardly visible. It just looks like one big stripe unless you look up close with good lighting. I would suggest using shades of more contrast for a better pattern.

And just for fun, here's a cute layering combo I did for V-Day. This is two coats of Sally Hansen Twisted Pink with two coats of Zoya Chloe on top:
