Gosh has it been a week. I realise it is only Wednesday but it feels like I should be starting weekend by now 😛
It’s NAILLinkup time for the month of looooooove! . You can check out all the prompts on the poster below. Remember, the dates are just a guideline. You can also find more info about NAILLINKUP and the February prompts here.
I haven’t really planned any Valentine nail art so was relying on NAILLinkup to provide all the necessary prompt I needed for this. Luckily, it didn’t disappoint. So here is my valentine nail art this prompt.
I started with 2 coats of Color Club – All over pink on all my nails. I started by adding Nubar – Silver glitter to my pinky. I thought I would just do a light glitter covering over the pink but I just couldn’t stop so kept going till it was almost opaque glitter. On my ring finger I stamped using Pueen43 and MoYou stamping polish in black. On my middle and index I used tape to tape off half of each nail and then used Wow #193 to make them half black. I then left that to dry completely. Once that was dry I used the Because I Shop straight liners vinyls over the black polish and then filled in the gaps with Nubar – Silver glitter. Making sure to remove the vinyls immediately after applying the polish. I then topcoated everything and that was that.
Can I just take a minute to talk about these vinyls. They are AH-mazing. I can not cut straight if my life depended on it and I am always looking for tape that is wider than striping tape but narrower than normal tape. Except I can never cut tape straight enough to make it work. These vinyls are perfection! They are the perfect size and width! Love love love them!
I also have a swatch for you
Color Club – All over pink
Of course my camera still hates pink but this is is a beautiful darker but still brightish pink. It is quite red toned. This is 2 easy coats with no topcoat. Formula was great, opacity was great. I am considering putting this on my toes as the weather starts getting cooler. It isn’t a bright summer / neon pink but still great all year round.
What do you think of my Valentines day look? I’d love to see what you are wearing for valentines. And what are your plans? DO you have a special someone you are spending it with? With special friends? Yourself? What are you up to?
