Ah Valentine’s Day, some people love it, some people loathe it, either way it makes for a great theme for nail art! Which is why it’s the theme for Week 3 of the #NailArtWeeklyProject *shouts Hurrah and throws heart shaped confetti in the air* 🙂
It’s actually my birthday on February 14th, so I usually tend to focus on that more than dear old Valentine’s Day (hey, if you can’t be self involved on your birthday when can you be?!) However, thanks to Danni’s #NailArtWeeklyProject I decided this year I’d go all out and crank the love heart nails to the max! I also thought that this would be the perfect time to experiment with my MUA One Direction Nail Crush “Stole My Heart” kit I bought in Superdrug! Valentine’s Day, One Direction and shiny pink and red sequin hearts – a match made in heaven!
I don’t really like pink nails, and wasn’t keen on having a whole hand covered in pink love heart nail jewels, so thought I’d make a more subtle statement by having one little heart placed on the base of a bright white nail instead. (As One Direction – and their nail varnish state, it’s the Little Things!) I used my new Models Own Hyper Gel white polish, and the One Direction Little Things pink polish for my accent nail, which I then coated fully in the nail sequin love hearts.
I actually really like this mani, and can imagine wearing this at any time of year, not just Valentine’s Day! You’ve converted me Danni! I was pretty pleased with both my new nail purchases, let me know if you’d like a more in depth review of either of them.
