I know Valentine's was here and is now gone.
I know you've probably had enough of hearts-y stuff already.
But I also know I got these cute little heart pieces (click here) from Born Pretty Store and I just had (HAD) to use them!

Seeing today was Sunday and the sun was shining madly outside (hooray!!!), I didn't want to spend much time doing my nails.
Of course, the answer to all my prayers: Mina's Simple Mani time!!! :)
Check it out:
Elegance strikes back! Do appreciate it while it lasts - it's not a constant in this blog of mine.
I like fluffy! And colourful! ;)
I was experimenting with this polish - Kinetics Marlene - and seeing it had so much gold shimmer in it, I thought it was the perfect pair for the heart pieces :)
Can we just take a moment to appreciate this gorgeousness in its full potential? :)
It's a really hard shade to capture though and it looks a tad different on your nails than it does in the bottle.
Hard as it may be to photograph, you should know it applies beautifully!
Opaque and even in two easy coats and no streakiness at all!
I've used black for an accent nail look - Purple Professional No.18 - , as I thought it gave a better contrast to the hearts than the golden fiery red polish ;)
At first, I was a bit taken aback by the size of the hearts (7mmX6mm) - I've got long nails but they're kind of on the thin side, my thumb being the bulkiest.
But once I put them on, all my fears disappeared and I was a happy girl!
They look GORGEOUS!!
Effortless, yet stunning, simple and gorgeous to look at, don't you think? ;)
