BEAUTY: Valentines Day Nails

WOW is it nearly Valentines Day already….

Valentines Day whether you celebrate it or not marks the start of what I called the ‘big calendar events’ you know what I mean…. Valentines Day, Shrove Tuesday (pancake day), Easter etc… Then before you know it we are back at the run up to Christmas again!

So any way the point I was trying to make is for these big calendar events I do personally like to participate, as I think it’s nice to make the effort and it doesn’t need to cost lots of money to participate either.

So to celebrate, Valentines day I thought appropriately painted nails does just the trick. Here’s how I created the look using these nail colours:

Firstly the colours I used Sally Hansen’s Double Duty as the base coat previously posted about here, Orly’s Who’s Who Pink as the Base colour with which I applied two coats.

Next the hearts, I chose two shades Essie’s colour shade number 23 ( sorry I don’t know the name as I got this as part of a set from TKMaxx) and Barry M’s Gelly Hi-Shine in the colour Pomegranate.

To create the hearts you need a steady hand, suggest you practise on a scrap piece of paper first! Very gently paint one side of the heart as a line

and then connect it with another

Let your nails dry a little before finishing them off with a touch of top coat, then you have the finished result!
