Valentine's Day Manicure #3 - Conversationless Hearts :)

Hey Everyone!! Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day :) Sadly my fiance was out of town for work... so my sister Emily and her bf Seth came over with some pizza and we watched some Pretty Little Liars lol
So for my last Valentine's Day manicure, my inspiration was those little candy conversation hearts that they sell during the month of February.

My plan was to paint each nail a different color and then write a little saying on my accent finger. Well I got lazy - lol - I did my manicure late on Saturday night and then took a road trip to Ohio with my sister all day Sunday. That is how I ended up with a Conversation"less" Hearts manicure.. lol I really enjoyed wearing all different colors and actually got a lot of compliments on it :) For the manicure I used Orly Nailtrition as my base coat - Essie Lilacism for my thumb - Sinful Colors-Innocent for my index finger - Sally Hansen-Yellow Kitty on my middle finger - Revlon-Sweet Tart for my ring finger - and Sinful Colors-Snow Me White for my pinky. I then used 2 coats of Essie-Matte About You as my top coat to give my mani a more chalky, sweet tart look. I think it worked out pretty well! I really like this manicure and actually this is the first time I have worn a different color on each of my nails.... so let me know what you think!!

What is your favorite Valentine Candy? What would your conversation heart say?

Revlon - Hot For Chocolate & Love My Nails - New Love - Valentine's Day Manicure #2

Hey Everyone! Hope you are having a good week so far! I am doing good - getting ready to leave to go play some volleyball, but I wanted to share my new manicure with you. I used Revlon - Hot For Chocolate #903, which I thought was pretty perfect for a Valentine's Day manicure, since a lot of people give chocolates for gifts. I paired it with Love My Nails - New Love #571 - which is one of my billion year old nail polishes. I have a lot of other red polishes I could have used, but when I saw the name of this one... I had to use it :) So my first thought for the chocolate and red was to create a "chocolates" mani, but once I started the decoration on my accent nail, I changed my mind... LOL Since I haven't ever created a zebra print manicure before, I decided to try it on this one. I used a toothpick to create the stripes and decided to call this manicure "Wild About You" :) LOL cheesy I know.. but I thought it was cute! Again I used the Orly Nailtrition as my base coat, 2 thin coats of the Revlon polish and the New Love for the design and finished with one coat of Seche Vite for my top coat. Hope you enjoy this mani!!

This pic is the color IRL

Let me know what you think! :)

Zoya Morgan & Hard Candy Fabuluxe - Valentine's Day Mani #1

Hey Everyone! :) I hope you are all staying warm with all this crazy weather! I don't know about anyone else... but I am over this cold and ready for Spring!
So this is my 1st Valentine♥s Day manicure and I love it! I used one of my 3 free Zoya's for the base of this mani - it's called Morgan! :) I am sure you all can tell why I bought it.. but I just happen to love this pink - I used 2 coats - but really only needed one. Before I put on Morgan - I used the Orly Nailtrition as my base coat again - honestly I think this is helping my nails a lot, well that combined with my Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream. I decided to pair Morgan with another untried polish that I bought at Walmart a few months ago - it's called Fabuluxe. I love this polish as well and thought it would be perfect for Valentine's Day manis. It has hot pink, dark pink, and purple glitter in it and it's just so pretty. I used a dotting tool that I bought from Sallys a couple weeks ago for the heart... I swear I did 37 practice hearts on a piece of paper LOL - I then topped everything off with a coat of Seche Vite. Let me know what you think!!

Everything I used for this mani - except my dotting tool

Do you use a dotting tool for your nail art? What's your favorite nail art tool?
