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?
