If you were expecting some strange mash-up nail art between chess pieces and a deck of cards based on the title of this post, it's just some more valentines nail art over here. I'm not one to go all-out for this holiday, but this is a look I've been wanting to try for a while, and I figured now was as good a time as ever to give it a go!
I started with one easy coat of Revlon Raspberry Scone, and added one coat of a glow-in-the-dark polish that my friend's parents got me on a recent day-trip to the states! Topped that with Seche Vite because I'm impatient, and then stuck two hole-reinforcement stickers at the base of each nail to make the top of a heart.
Next, I painted over the exposed part of my nail with my recently acquired Butter London The Black Knight which has been a long-time lemming of mine, and immediately removed the stickers. I absolutely love the black base with multi-coloured microglitter!
I finished the look with two coats of Seche Vite for a completely smooth finish. I was happy with my execution on this one, but as I was wearing it I kept questioning my colour choice with the pink. I think I might have preferred a rich red, or a darker pink.
While in ballet yesterday with one of the teachers who regularly checks on my nails in class, she caught a glimpse of these and I told her they were supposed to be the tops of hearts. She then asked me if I did them for anyone special; I replied "My internet friends!" which got me a strange look, so I had to explain my whole nail-blogging thing in the middle of barre to my teacher. I'm pretty sure that all my teachers know now, haha!
I'll be back tomorrow with my last Valentine's Day nail art, along with my sister's nails! :)
