Valentine's Mani

Week 7- Valentine's Mani
So I'm a little late on this one. Sorry :(

I had this great idea for a heart shaped water-marble but when I tried to do it on Sunday it was a complete flop. Let's just say that I am not that adept at water-marbling...

So last night, I tried something else...



I started with a silver foil base on my thumb and ring finger. I painted the rest China Glaze Fuchsia Fanatic

Then I drew on a simple looking heart with the brush that is in the bottle. China Glaze has a smaller brush so that made it easier :)

Then using the biggest dotting tool I had (big dotter below), I drew a slightly smaller heart in the silver foil.
Medium dotter, Big dotter

 The medium dotter for the purple...

And the small dotter for the lighter pink!


I used the new Electropop colors from China Glaze for this look:

The I added a rhinestone to the rest of my nails to tie everything in with some shiny and tadah!


Even though this isn't what I had intended, I still like it. It's very pink, which is unusual for me. I have very few pink polishes, which is why I ended up buying the Electropop pinks :) I needed something for my valentine's mani right? Most of my polishes are purple, my favorite color!

Don't forget to check out my Year of Polish page to see some more bloggers' take on these challenges!

Until next time ^_^
