The One With the Valentine's Day Instagram Collab

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It's Valentine's Day so we all know how happy I am.  NOT!  Cannot wait until tomorrow where I can sit and enjoy the Grammy's and act like this day never happened!  Seriously, this is the first Sunday in forever that the Grammy's aren't on.  Did they purposely move it to the 15th because of Valentine's Day?

Today I am participating in an Instagram Valentine's Day collaboration.  I figured this would force me to actually create and post a manicure for today.  So I came up with something I really do think is extremely Valentine's Day and only lasted a full day on my nails before I took it off.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Rooney
  • Zoya - Livingston
  • Zoya - Tomoko

I will admit, Zoya has some perfect Valentine's Day colors with these polishes.  I have owned Rooney for awhile and I'm shocked I don't use it more.  It's such a pretty shade of pink which applies perfectly in two coats.  I might ignore it for the next month or so to forget the fact it was a good polish for today, but I will return to it.  Maybe in the summer time!

Tomoko is my all time favorite Pixie Dust polish which can be used year round.  It's such a pretty champagne gold color and it sparkles quite nicely.  Two coats plus a top coat for my manicure today.  You can leave it without a topper and it's still just as sparkly.

For my design, I used the polish brush of Rooney and created the heart on my nails.  When that was dried, I went through with Livingston and created a smaller heart.  It's pretty much the same technique  I use to do the cloud designs, which I haven't done in a long long time!

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Something you think you might try next year?

Until next time, <3.
