Love Is In The Air Nail Art Challenge: Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!


I have one last Valentines look to squeeze in for you before the season is finished! (And when I say "one last" I mean there might be a couple more coming out later this week... Haha. What can I say, Valentine looks are fun to do!)

This is my fill for "Happy Valentine's Day!" for the current Challenge Your Nail Art challenge. I decided to go all-out stereotypical. Pink, hearts, gems and shimmer! Let's make it as bold and holiday-y as we can, right? ;)



I started off with a bold pink shimmer from Julep named Kendall as my base. As you can see even with three coats it was a bit sheer but I didn't let that bother me and decided to add some stamping as well. The design is from plate BP-32 and I did my stamping with Konad White Stamping Polish. When it dried a bit I coloured the very centre of the hearts in with a bit of sheer white polish (Sally Hansen Triple Shine Great White). I finished it off with some crystal gems because why not. :)


I may not have waited long enough for my stamping to dry before I applied my top coat, but ah well. That's one of the risks we take! I still really like how this picture picks up on the shimmer even if it also picks up on the imperfections.


I'm not generally big on Valentine's Day irl but I do enjoy the things the nail blogging world does with it. :) Nail bloggers always do up holidays in awesome ways, and everyone is so creative! It's so inspiring.

Speaking of inspiration, check out the looks below from the other lovelies involved in the challenge to see what they came up with:




Did you do anything special for Valentine's Day? I did not, but I'd love to hear about your day if you did!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Oh my goodness! These are so adorable! I only did one look for Valentines day but I did a few eye makeup looks! None of them will make it to the blog more than likely because I can't find my product lists. Boo #unorganized
