Happy Valentines Day!!! Also known as the day I hate! I'm such a grinch, but I truly see Valentines Day only as a Hallmark holiday. Aren't we supposed to show our love for our loved ones everyday and not just focus on it for one day? Eh, whatever. I had so many Valentines Day nail art ideas, but after doing two of them, I got kind of tired of them. Actually, this nail art was done a few days ago and today I have no hearts or pink on my nails. I'm kind of happy with this.
When I had my nails painted white with the gorgeous Sally Hansen Moonstone, I was going to draw a bunch of red and pink hearts all over them. After doing a few hearts, I didn't like how it turned out. The idea in my mind was great, but on the nails, not so much. After that one disasticure, I took to my pinterest ideas board. I came across this cutepolish video that I pinned AGES ago. Probably around the time I started this blog. I always liked how it looked, so I thought I should try it.
Le sigh, on my one year anniversary I couldn't even come up with an original post, oh well. Actually, I was going to attempt to re-do my first ever nail art which was a doily heart design, but when I was attempting it, I just wasn't happy. So I gave up and vowed to not do any more Valentines Day manicures until next year.
Let's take a look at my copy-cat of cutepolish's design!
- Ulta - Snow White
- Sally Hansen - Red Carpet
- China Glaze - Hang Ten Toes
- Sinful Colors - Black on Black
- Sally Hansen - Disco Ball
Okay, they were rather cute. I started off with two coats of Snow White. When that was dried, I sponged on Hang Ten Toes and Red Carpet in random areas on the nail. The red kind of turned out like a darker pink, but it still was cute. To smooth out the sponging, I painted on a coat of Disco Ball, the worlds prettiest glitter. When it was all dried, with my nail art brush I painted on the black hearts.
In the end, they kind of looked like hearts painted over some spray paint on a wall. Almost like graffiti? Maybe I'm the only one who sees it!!!
What do you think?? Do you love Valentines Day or hate it like me?
I'm off to celebrate the holiday by writing my thesis and having a lil party with my nephews! Hope you all have a great day! <3
