Vday Manicure

Pink, glitter and metallic: This was the first Valentine’s Day themed manicure I did this year and turned out to be one of my favorites! To create this manicure I used Rimmel Speed Dating, topped it with OPI Teenage Dream just on my thumb and added a metallic accent nail with Orly Rage.

Tiffany Inspired Manicure: If this doesn’t give your guy a Valentine’s Day gift hint nothing will! For Christmas my wonderful brother got my a necklace from Tiffany’s.  The packaging was gorgeous! I had to do a manicure using the color combinations. Clearly I went through many versions of this manicure. The literal interpretation of the bow is my favorite but I really quite like all of them. Polishes used: Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter, JulieG Sunset Kiss

Holographic Heart: This is my absolute favorite! I did all my nails with PISTOL polish Firecracker then cut a heart out in a piece of tape (just fold it over and cut….like they taught you in elementary school!). I applied the tape over the nail and filled it in with Impala Na Mira 3D. Gorgeous!

Metallic Red Accent Nail: Simple yet festive is the perfect way to describe this manicure. The key is to use polishes with different finishes. I used Finger Paints Louvre This Pink and added a metallic red accent nail with JulieG Sunset Kiss.

If All Else Fails, Use Nail Strips: I wore these OMG Nail Strips in Pink Kisses back in January and realized they’d be perfect for Valentine’s Day! Sally Hansen also has nail strips out with Valentine’s designs.

    “Love” in Braille, now that is unique. Cute manis.

      I used to write things on my nails in Braille all the time when I was in high school. I thought I was so clever. Oh to be a teenager!
