They Say Valentine's Is Coming

I know, I know...

There's still a lot of weeks in between today and February 14th but after yesterday's post, I was in a 'Love Is All Around You' mood and decided these were in order ;)




So...
They're pink and they're fluffy. There's hearts and there's sparkle.
What else do you need? ;)




I started these by painting all my nails with L'Óreal Acid Watermelon (the closest pink shade to the flocking powder I'd be using).
My middle finger was done in two coats of white - Bellaoggi Snow White.




I then sponged bits of colour to it - turquoise and pink and lemon yellow.
I covered it all up with Essence Space Queen, a soft glitter polish.
Can you see it all?




After it all dried, I applied one coat of clear polish on each pink nail and applied the flocking powder on top.
I think I've gotten the hang of it by now - you have to completely pile it up on your nail, covering all corners, and press it gently with your fingers - not smoothing it along the nail as I used to do, just pressing it. It'll even out by itself, trust me.




Last but not least, I drew some hears on my middle finger, using acrylic paint.
The outlining was really hard and it's not perfectly done - I guess I'll just have to keep practising ;)



What do you think of these? Too sickening? Too pink and cutesy? Or just perfect and lovely?
Let me know in the comment section and have a fine evening, lovelies! <3

  1. Oh I love it *-* Definitely sweet and cute, love the combo of fluffy pink nails with accent nail and btw I think that the imperfect outline of the hearts makes it even more cute, looks so random - as if it was meant to be irregular - and funky! Great nails <3
