Here are my Valentine’s day nails! I have to admit that I’m really lacking in any inspiration for Valentines nail art this year, so this is a rather obvious choice of pink and hearts! 😀
The polishes I used for the gradient are A England Camelot, Color Club Foil Me Once and another Color Club polish called Hot Like Lava. The little hearts are Camelot as the base and Foil Me Once over the top.
Because the hearts where quite pronounced I ended up adding two coats of Seche Vite to flatten it out.
one thing creating this mani has made me realise is, I own way more pink nail polish than I thought… And I should probably use them more often!
Here’s my pick and Mix Valentines day Mani!
Obligatory Valentine’s Day Nails!
I used two lovely ILNP polishes, Birefringence and My Private Rainbow as well as black and silver nail art pens from Barry M.
Birefringence and My Private Rainbow
I started with a coat of black polish then two coats of Birefringence, then another two coats of My Private Rainbow. then when that had all dried I drew the little hearts with the Barry M nail art pens.

Today I have some very Anti Valentine’s day nails to show you!
Anti Valentines Day Nails
I don’t think I could have made this any less valentine’sy!
I started out with two coats of Pumice From Sally Hansen, then using a make up sponge I applied patches of Pure Midnight which is also a Sally Hansen Polish.
Then I used a combination of cling film and tiny bits of sponge to add Barry M Grey, China Glaze Galactic Grey and Color Club Shabby Drab to create the stone effect.

I used two Bundle Monster Plates BM-426 and BM-413 for the stamping, I used Konad Special Polish in Black, then with a thin brush I added some Lumin-iceant from Color Club to the letters.
I also used Lumin-iceant for the stamping on my thumb, unfortunately it doesn’t show as well as I would like 😦

I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite, but then decided it would look better in matte so I added a coat of Matte Finisher from E.L.F!
I think that’s enough hate nails from me! And I hope you have a lovely Valentine’s day what ever you are doing! 🙂
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 couldn’t wait to do some nail art over the Real Color Nail polish from my last post you can find that Here. The colour is so perfect for a Valentine’s Day Mani!

I started by making the gradient on my Thumb, Ring and Middle fingers, for that I used Revlon Black Magic. For my Index finger and Pinky I stamped using Messy Mansion Plate MM16 William Morris and friends, you can find that Here.
I also used an image from this plate for my Ring finger, I used Color Club Antiquated for that, it looks more silver than gold in the photos

For my Thumb and Middle finger I used Moyou Pro Plate 07 XL
As a valentines day Mani goes I think that this one is really rather dark and vampy! 😀
But I’m not really a pastels kind of girl! 🙂
