I think Valentines Day nails might be some of my favorite nail designs! So in honor of my love for nails about love I will be overloading my blog, Instagram, and Facebook with hearts and kisses and roses and all things Valentines Day!
Here’s my first mani and I really love it. It’s a lot prettier in real life. I just couldn’t capture the colors and diamonds and glitter on camera the way I would like so just trust me on this one. 🙂
I used CND Vinylux Pink Bikini polish for all the nails and then dotted the chain of the necklace on the ring finger with Essie Good As Gold. The heart gem I’ve had forever and rarely use them. I don’t know why because they are super cute. I have so many products I buy and never use…
The middle finger is gold hex glitter just kinda piled on until I got a heart shape going. I will say hex glitter is so much easier to work with on gel polish than regular polish. The base coat kept drying when I was placing the glitters so I had to keep adding more to get the glitter pieces to stick. With gel polish I just put a thin coat of clear top coat down, place all the glitters, cure, and do some more top coats till I can’t feel any loose glitter edges.
The thumb, index, and pinky finger gems are from the same gem collection as the heart gem. I bought them at CosmoProf a while back–I think they are CinaPro nail art products. I like the long pear shaped gems at the cuticle because I think it elongates your nail bed.
Here’s a cute outfit from Polyvore to go along with this mani 🙂
And I want to know–What’s your dream Valentine’s Day Date?
I love hearing from my readers so don’t be shy! 🙂
Thanks so much for reading, have a fabulous weekend, and XOXO!
