So as you may have gathered from my recent posts, I’m a little conflicted about Valentine’s Day. I love all things pink and sparkly and heart shaped every other day of the year but there’s something weird about this stooopid holiday that makes it less of a celebration when you’re single. I still want to do nail art but the nagging single-ness stops me reaching for the neon pinks and heart shaped glitters. (My poor heart shaped glitters, they get so little love, ironically.)
So when I saw this post on mkmyday it spoke to me! Then I came across Sinful Colors Snow Me White in Dealz and fate decided for me! Black and white it is! If you like nail art then you should really check out mkmyday on tumblr or instagram. They do the coolest designs :)
A word about Snow Me White. Perfection.
It is the most perfect white creme ever. The formula is like melted butter. Two coats and done. Highly recommended. I did the little shaky hearts and dots with my Model’s Own Nail Art Pen. Then added a coat of Essie Matte About You. I’ll be honest; I only added the matte topcoat because I thought it was my regular topcoat. The bottles are identical. :)

Hi Everyone! :)
Happy Valentine’s Day! <3
I have a couple of looks to show you today:
I found this gorgeous light pink nail polish from Catrice called Apropos Coco and thought it was perfect for Valentine’s Day. Of course, I had to add a little sparkle to it. So I added the little heart using Barry M Rose Quartz and the rhinestones because they matched the glitter. I thought it was a very sweet, girly mani.
Next, I have a purple stripe heart mani because it was requested by Margaret after I posted this Sinful Colors mani.
I wanted to make it a bit different so that I wasn’t repeating myself so I did ombre hearts.
I used, from pinkie to index, Nails Inc Duchess Street, China Glaze Creative Fantasy, Bella Pierre Lavender and Sinful Colors Beverly Hills. The white is Deborah Lippman Amazing Grace.
I did a dotted heart on my thumb with the same purple polishes and really liked how it turned out. (I sometimes experiment on my thumb because you never see it :)
So, instead of repeating the striped hearts on my other hand, I decided to try the dotted heart again, only in pink. I liked it again!
By now, I was confident that I could do dotted hearts and did them on my whole hand..but I think I was overly confident because they don’t look like hearts!
I love the different sized dots though – it’s like a cute colour blind test. Next time I’ll just dot the whole nail and I think that will look better.
What do you guys think of my Valentine’s nails?
I hope you’re all having a great day!
Thanks for looking :)
