Hello! Remember how I said that the threat of snow was looming? Well, the threat became reality today and I'm sitting here in a library with my heavy-duty winter boots on and a puffy coat taking over my chair. It's been snowing steadily since I woke up this morning and it doesn't look like it'll let up any time soon. I don't mind it so much but I'm a bit worried that it'll freeze overnight. Early morning + treks across campus + my clumsiness = disaster :P
So it looks like I'm starting the Valentine's Day festivities early this year. I want to get a head start because February will be a busy month and the fourteenth will surely come by too quickly. I'm hoping to do several different Valentine's Day looks for you- hopefully you find something you like :) This manicure is a really simple one to do- perfect for a sweet, last minute look. I've had this wheel of half pearls sitting around for ages so I decided to use the smallest size to spruce these up.
To start I used American Apparel American Denim. I took a white striping polish to make vertical stripes down each nail. With a striping brush I painted on the roses using American Apparel Rose Bowl and American Apparel Office for the leaves. I used topcoat and tweezers to apply the half pearls along my cuticle.
How do you like the half pearls? Most of the time I feel like they're very outdated but sometimes they can be cute too :) Link or tweet me your pearl-adorned manicures! (@preciouspolish)
