Manicure Monday: Valentine's Day 2014

  Hi everyone!  It's been a while since my last Manicure Monday and I did a really simple design for this year.  I went with Essie's Mademoiselle, China Glaze's Ruby Pumps for the hearts, Essie's Blanc for the hearts, Essie's Luxe Effects in A Cut Above for the accent nail, and of course my usual base and top coat, OPI Nail Envy base and Seche Vite fast drying top coat.  You can do the same design or theme and use whatever colors you prefer! ^_^  I apologize as I get home in the evening, so there isn't much sunlight to work with and it's been dreary if it hasn't been snowing.  Also the lights in the house are very yellow -___-;


  UGH!  My pinky chipped!  Typing at work, dishes, cooking and other daily uses of my hands.  Although, I have this problem with many of the opaque or more sheer polishes I own, not just Essie.  They all seem to chip/fade more easily compared to glitter, neon, or more solid shades I have personally found.


I started at first with just the sparkly red hearts (China Glaze Ruby Pumps) but then I thought it was too simple lol.  So I threw in the alternating white hearts.


Essie's A Cut Above is a really gorgeous pink/rose gold glitter and I like it a lot!  It's very eye catching and feminine.  I used a dotting tool to do the hearts, but you can use bobby pins, toothpicks or a nail striper brush.  

Oh!  And here's is my Instagram teaser pic!  I quite liked how it turned out!  I also loooove my awesome coffee mug!


Sorry for such a short post!  But this nail art was seriously that simple!  I wish you all a very happy/romantic/fun/loving Valentine's Day with your loved one, loved ones, family or friends! ♥ 

Do you have any plans for Valentine's Day?  What's your manicure look like this week?  Let me know in the comments! ^.~

    1. Thanks! ^_^ I quite like the glitter too, I might actually do a full manicure with just the glitter! I love accent/one finger that looks different from the rest of the nails! It's very eye catching! ^___^ Thanks for visiting as always Bella! ♥

  3. Happy Valentine's Day, sweets! Those are lovely nails you have there. I think I should invest in some China Glaze or OPI coz I could never quite achieve great effects from my polishes that don't brush on smoothly. I'm so glad you found me on Instagram. I've been blogging a lot lesser and have not been very proactive in blog visiting except to people who leave comments on my blog. So I'm very glad we reconnected.

    1. Agreed, I've fallen off the Blog-o-sphere grid a bit myself! However, Instagram is my new obsession and connect actively there. ^__^ China Glaze is probably my most favorite polish brand and I only recently got into glittery things, I had always loved it, but had bad luck previously, but it adds such sparkle to my life lol! Thank you as always Jo, you always leave sweet comments. <3
