Valentine's Day nail art...

My first nail art post is going to be dedicated to lurrrve. First and foremost, my love of nail polish, nail art, and having those fingertips looking immaculate. Secondary of course is Valentine's Day, which is just around the corner.

I am not much of a fan of Valentine's Day, mainly because my boyfriend isn't either, but I personally think it is rather commercial, extremely over hyped and not to mention expensive (I know, not the usual response of a girl!). However, I have got into the spirit of the holiday this year, and have done a cute manicure that would do Cupid proud.

Here goes:

Nail polish used:

Nails Inc - Warwick Avenue
OPI - Miniature red with glitter, no name on bottle.
Nails Inc - Albert Bridge (top coat)

I used two thin coats of Warwick Avenue, and freestyled the heart shapes with the red OPI polish. Don't get me wrong, a steady hand is required, but it's pretty simple to do. To finish off the design I used a dotting tool (the smallest one I had) to frame the heart shape.

I let it all dry and completed the manicure with one coat of the Nails Inc Albert Bridge top coat, and hey presto, you have beautiful Valentine's Day nails that everyone (even the most cynical) will love.

Would love to hear what you all think of the design, and if you give it a go or come up with your own designs, then I would love to see them too...

Until next time,
