Be Mine, Valentine

So lately I've been trying to post more frequently and so far it's been working! I really hope that I can continue to keep up at this pace.
Anyway here's my final manicure for Valentine's Day. I brought back the heart frames but to save myself the despair of painting them on all ten nails I used them as an accent instead. On the rest of the nails I did some little rosettes which came out exactly how I envisioned. I also tried to apply polish neater around my cuticles. With all of that working out quite successfully, I'm very pleased with these nails! (:


I painted all of my nails with OPI Alpine Snow. I used Art Club Lilac to paint the heart frames and some of the rosettes. For the peach rosettes I used Essie Van D'Go and American Apparel Office for the leaves.

So that's it from me for Valentine's Day! I hope you enjoyed all of these love-themed manicures (:
I want to wish you all a lovely Valentine's Day whether you are with a special someone, family, friends or just a good movie (:

  5. I freehanded the flowers with polish and a small paint brush! They are just comprised of irregular 'c' shapes. Start in the centre and make 'c' shapes around it, building up the flower to the size you want (:
