|Left to Right // China Glaze - Ruby Pumps / OPI - Mod About You / OPI - Color So Hot It Berns|
Despite being crazily busy this last couple of weeks with moving house (yes, again!!) and taking a last minute trip to Singapore for the Mr's work, I still found some time to take part in my favourite Valentine's tradition. Of course I did. A bit of love inspired nail art!
This was inspired by some simple red heart shape tips I'd spied on Pinterest a while back. I just made some of my own enhancements/adjustments: I used two colors, OPI Mod About You and Color So Hot it Berns, to layer some of the hearts; for a more playful look I painted my hearts on slight tilts and kept my rounder, less pointy nail shape, the originals (see Pinterest link) are a bit regimented and too claw-like for my taste; and lastly I added a bit of China Glaze Ruby Pumps, because it wouldn't be right not to have a touch of glitter on Valentine's Day!
Special mention has to be given to the base coat, it's my latest polish addition, Chanel Frisson. It was picked up on a stop-and-grab duty-free haul on our last trip to SG. It's the epitome of a feminine sheer pink, with a subtle irridescent micro-shimmer to it. So pretty! For this manicure I just used two coats but you can layer up three or four to get an opaque finish. No doubt I'll show you a snap of this polish worn that way in the future because it's a definite easy to wear, everyday kinda polish.
Anyway, Valentine's day is winding to a close now around the other side of the world (it's actually Saturday here now) but I hope you all had a wonderful day spent with whoever you love, be it your partner, your friends or your pet :) And, have a great weekend!
