Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone has had a lovely start to their week so far. I had yesterday off so I spent the day watching season 2 of Vanderpump Rules & dealing with organizing an excessive amount of clothing I’ve been neglecting for the last few weeks.
I also have been thinking & planning for some Valentine’s Day nail art looks! So I figured why not start now—after all, January doesn’t call for much nail art inspo.
This is the first time I’ve attempted freehanded hearts in a long, long time & I’m so beyond happy with how they turned out! I used a base of Londontown Opal as it was such a beautiful shade, perfect for a romantic design like this. I had this idea in my head, & I am really really happy with how it turned out! This would totally be a cute Valentine’s Day look for anyone who doesn’t want to go over the top with pink! You get a little bit of pink, but the grey, & white & black really keeps it from being too over the top girlie (I think.) But you could definitely do a variety of colour combinations.
What do you think about this heart design? Have you already started to think about potential Valentine’s Day designs? Let me know what you think down in the comments, & what nail art looks your planning for February! 💗
Today I’m getting in the Valentine’s Day mood! I’ve had this polish — OPI Bearest of them All — in my stash for going on 5 years, but somehow hadn’t thought to use it in a glitter gradient! But since I’m all about speedy designs right now, I thought this would be the perfect Valentine’s Day nail art look when you need something quick & beautiful!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Essie Treat Love & Colour Gloss Fit
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Essie Haute in the Heat
OPI Bearest of them All
Latex Free make up sponge
How cute as these little heart glitters?! I won’t lie, this wasn’t the easiest glitter gradient I’ve ever done. Basically, I had to sponge the smaller glitters onto my nail in the gradient, & then fished my heart glitters out of the polish to apply onto the nail. Not the easiest to do, but you can’t lie about how freaking adorable the outcome is! I’m absolutely in love with how this looks! & still super quick to do.
I feel like usually I’m more on the ball about doing Valentine’s Day looks, but I just haven’t been as into it this year. I had plans to do some love heart nails & a few others, but I just wasn’t as inspired as I usually feel. I do have one more look to share on Thursday, but this year seems to be more about simple Valentine’s-esque designs more than blatant heart designs.
What do you think about this glitter gradient? Do you have this limited edition OPI in your stash — have you ever thought to use it this way? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Friday! Today I’m showing off a fun girlie floral OOTD that would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.
As you guys have probably guessed from my nails, I love floral. All things floral! Which naturally means, I tend to have a large collection of floral in my closet — where else do you think I get all the inspiration for my nails? So come Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, it’s a pattern I love to wear.
I’m wearing my absolute favourite jeans of all time, the Slimming Skinny Jeans from Levi that which I gushed about in my post all about my 5 Go To Items. I know I already said it, but they really are the best pair of jeans I’ve ever owned. & after 2 years, they still look absolutely brand new!
A floral shirt is always a good idea in my eyes, but I love that this one is peplum style because it shows off the areas I love (my shoulders/collarbone area) while camouflaging the areas I’m a little more self conscious about (my post-baby stomach). I thrifted it this Summer, but I’m a floral anytime kind of girl, so I love that throwing a cardigan over top makes it so verstitle.
This would be a look I could most definitely see myself wearing for a Valentine’s date night with my husband, just because not only is it comfortable, it makes me feel cute.
What do you think about this girlie floral OOTD? Do you have a favourite pattern you love to wear, or are you more of a solids all over person? Let me know down in the comments below!
Good morning lovelies & happy Tuesday. Also happy 2 days until Valentine’s Day… if you’re into that kinda thing. Haha.
I’m into any holiday that encourages pretty nails & I was feeling a little bit of holo. Especially since I have been a bit out of the nail art routine lately. So it felt like a good excuse to pull out a few of my favourite Wrenn Polish shades for some pink heart nail art! 💕
For this design, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Claire’s Miracle Base Coat
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Wrenn Polish Passionfruit Pink
Wrenn Polish Enchanted
UR Sugar Nail Vinyls (Heart Pattern)
I really love the subtlety of this look. You have the pop of holo with Enchanted over the more soft base of Passionfruit Pink so the design really comes out best in motion. You get that little bit of rainbow which shows off your heart pattern. & even best… it’s super easy! All it takes is two polishes, a few nail vinyls, & bam! Easy & fancy nails.
This is a really fun look to wear for whatever your Valentine’s Day plans may be, whether it’s a romantic date with your love, margaritas with your besties, or eating an entire box of chocolate with your cat. Who doesn’t want to have pretty nails?
