Browsing my Pinterest Nails board for inspiration, and Valentine’s manicures in general, I started on my own nails….’coz a girl’s gotta have her nails specially done, doesn’t she? lol
These are the polishes I used:
They are (left to right):
Sally Hansen – Super strong micro-fibre base coat
L’Oreal – Fleur de Lis 330
NYC – Fuschia (one of my favourite colours!)
NYC – confetti ( a purple glitter)
Sally Hansen – Diamond Shine base and top coat.
I used the white base coat because I think it makes a pale colour look ‘brighter’.
I did two coats of Fuschia on all except ring fingers. Ring fingers have Fleur de Lis.
Then I dropped two small blobs of fuschia on the ring fingers, and teased them into a heart shape, using the tool shown above. You need a steady hand, and all the gods on your side 😉
I’m pretty partial to some glitter, but I chose to be a bit restrained and used a purple glitter rather than silver. I like it!
The top coat protects the lot 🙂
How are your nails looking?
Happy Valentine’s Day for tomorrow, Saturday xx
