The One With the Rose Manicure for Valentine's Day! - and Blog-versary!

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world and Happy Valentine's Day!  Blah, hate this holiday, but guess what?  It's the 7th Anniversary of The Little Canvas.  Weird that it's the anniversary of my blog seeing as I hate this day so much.  I remember when I started this blog, I was homesick for a month with some ungodly illness.  Before getting sick, I was beginning to discover the world of nail polish blogs.  I so badly wanted to get my designs out there, and while lounging around the house attempting to get better, The Little Canvas was born!  Looking back at it now, while that sickness was horrible, I'm grateful it happened, because if it didn't I wouldn't have this blog, and I probably wouldn't still be painting my nails.

So while everyone is showing their love with their significant others, I'm going to show my love for all my lovely followers.  From those who have stuck from me since the very beginning, to all my new followers, I thank you all joining me on this journey!  I truly love you and couldn't imagine not having you all in my life!

I guess I should stop being so sappy and start talking about my manicure for today!  I love rose manicures, and this one is no exception.  The colors, the little roses....just everything is perfect!!

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Mystic Maven
  • ORLY - Head in the Clouds
  • ORLY - Mirrorball
Look at this manicure!!!!!  How could you hate it?!  Mystic Maven is drop.dead.gorgeous!  Mystic Maven is a purple mauve cream from the Deep Wonder collection from Winter 2018.  I said this in my last ORLY post, but polishes like these are the reason that I still have a subscription to the ORLY Color Pass.  It's such a great deal and you get all four main ORLY collections.  Since Sally Beauty stopped carrying the Limited Edition collections, this was the way to go for me.  Especially because the Color Pass is much cheaper than what I could purchase them for in store.

Anyways, Mystic Maven covers completely in two coats.  Honestly, you could get away with one coat on this gorgeous polish.  I'm so happy to have this color in my collection.

Trying a little new background for my pose like this.  Not sure if I like it yet, but it does feature another shot of Mystic Maven, as well as the beautiful Head in the Clouds.  This polish is from the La La Land Spring Collection in 2017....another Color Pass purchase.  Two coats for that polish, but I used three because I felt like there was one patchy spot.  I think that was operator error though.

What do you think? Love this rose manicure? Love the ORLYs?

Again, I want to thank you all who have followed and supported me for the past 6 years!  You have no idea how much it means to me!  Here's to another year!

Until next time, <3.
