Happy Valentines Day everyone! I hope you all are enjoying it as much as I do! What can I say, I'm a big sucker for the day. I just love seeing all the balloons, teddy bears and flowers everywhere you go, and who can resist all the heart shaped treats. I know I've definitely passed my calorie intake for the day, starting with the cupcake for breakfast. Tonight I do not have super exciting plans, we are staying in and I've decided to cook a nice dinner, but even though I am not going out, I definitely had to have some fun nails for the occasion.
I am still wearing the pointy nails, so I saw the perfect opportunity to do this design. I wanted to wear a sparkly french in the shape of a heart. I have this loose pink glitter that I am in love with and I knew it would be perfect. I started with a coat OPI Bubble Bath to have a nice base colour, I waited for this to dry before I continued. Next using a pink polish similar in colour to the glitter I painted a heart on the tip of each nail. With my finger I pressed the glitter into the nail, filling each heart entirely. Once this was done I outlined each heart with my Jet Black Instant Artist paint. To finish the design I went along the top of each heart (what would be the smile line) with my platinum striping paint, this made the heart pop a little bit more.
This design is really quite simple but also very bold. I like it!
