Happy Valentine's Day 2014

Hi everyone!  I have been up to my eyes in swatching lately, so it was so nice to take a break and get back to nail art!  I decided on a skittle design for my Valentine's Day mani this year!

Envelope Nails

I started off with (from index to pinky) two coats of Delush Polish Je Ne Sais Quoi, three coats of Nicole by OPI Sweet Surrender, two coats of Zoya Mira, and two coats of China Glaze Wish on a Starfish.  I followed with one coat of SV, with the exception of Wish on a Starfish.


I used my striping tape to create the envelope outlines over Mira, and applied one coat of Nicole by OPI Yoga-Then-Yogurt.  I removed the tape immediately and followed with one coat of SV.


For a little bit of glitz, I used some pink hex glequins in a polka dot pattern over Sweet Surrender, and sealed them with one coat of SV.


To seal the envelope with a heart, I fished out a red holographic heart from Pretty & Polished Be-Claus I Love You, and finished with one coat of SV.


I absolutely love the end result!  It has a bit of flair, but is still on the delicate side!




I had so much fun creating this!  I hope you have an amazing Valentine's Day!!
Happy Painting!
