Here are my Valentines day nails for todays got polish challenge! I have to say I’m really not into the whole Valentines day thing, I find it all far to commercialized and a bit cheap… But enough of me grumbling lol!
Valentine’s Day Nail Art
I started out by making the little stamped decals using Bundle monster BM-401, for the stamping I used Konad special polish in black. Then color club ulterior motive for half of the hearts and Maybelline Flash Cosmic with a coat of Barry m shocking pink over the top for the rest.

While I was waiting for my decals to dry I used Sinful Colors Bubbly and Barry m shocking pink to create a sponged gradient, Bubbly is a polish from my unused pile along with the Maybelline glitter polish. Then I stamped with China Glaze Cosmic Dust using Moyou Pro Collection XL plate 04 for the leopard print. I used topcoat to stick on the decals, and added a few dots of Ulterior motive. then another layer of top coat to even it all out!

This didn’t turn out quite how I was expecting! But for pink and girly it’s not that bad….

I have been making stamped decals again! 😀 this time I used images from two of my Moyou plates, 01 and 02 from the Suki Collection.
The polishes I used!
- Barielle Shades – Grape Escape
- Color Club – Ulterior Motive
- Revlon – Sweet Revenge (the pink one from the duo)
- Barry M – Shocking Pink
- Sally Hansen – Ivory Skull
- Revlon – Calla Lily
- Konad Special Polish – Black
- Color Club – Topcoat
Pink and Purple Cherry Blossom
I started off by making the flowers, you can find how I made them here.
I used Grape Escape and sponged on a little Ulterior Motive on the tips as the base colour, when that was dry I applied the flowers using the Color Club Topcoat like glue! 😀
When that was all dry, I applied a couple more coats of topcoat to seal all of my decals in! In some places on my nails there must be at least 6 layers of polish, it feels really thick like Gel! It took ages to dry, about half an hour
I really liked making the cherry blossom decals, even tho the tiny flowers where a bit fiddly to paint! The time it took to get them all on my nails was rather a lot longer than I would have liked, then getting them to stick was a pain! I think that it’s because I made them to thick, but I’m going to have to try out some other clear polishes to find the best one for decal making! 😀
This is still quite a new technique to me, practice makes perfect and all that! 😀

Glitter Leopard Gradient Nails
I started with one coat of Amethyst from Sinful Colors, this polish is a really nice colour, it’s a mid purple creme, (I’ll do a swatch at some point) I used it as a base colour to tone down the very bright pink polish I chose for the gradient.
For the sponged gradient I used Black on Black also from Sinful Colors and Ulterior Motive from Color Club, which is a fantastic bright magenta pink jelly with iridescent pink and blue micro glitter. The gradient took two coats, I had to work very quickly as the glitter kept sticking to the sponge!
For the leopard print I used Moyou XL Pro Collection 04, and Konad special polish in black.
I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite. Not including the clean up this only took me 15 minutes!
