Nevertheless, I can still use the day as an excuse to wear one of my favourite polishes, and stick hearts on them to make my mani appropriate for the occasion!
By the time I was done a ton of swatching last night I didn't want to do anything too time-consuming, so I came up with this simple look. I used two coats of Butter London Fiddlesticks, and picked some heart glitters out of one of my indie polishes to stick on to each nail. Two coats of Seche Vite for a smooth finish.
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I also did my sister's nails for Valentine's Day. We decided on some unnaturally-coloured leopard print in shades of pink. I started with three easy coats of NOPI Studio Mama, did the center of the spots with Butter London Rosie Lee, and drew the outlines in OPI We'll Always Have Paris. Topped it with one coat of Seche Vite. She got lots of compliments on this at dance yesterday!
She also now has an appreciation for how difficult and awkward hand-posing is.
I'm really loving my simple Valentine's Day mani, still festive while not too over-the-top. Definitely suits me! What have you got on your nails for Valentine's Day? Any special plans to celebrate? :)
