Valentine's Day Nails: Hearts & Dots!

I kind of freaked out this week when I realized we were into the first week of February and there weren't any Valentine's Day nails posted on my blog. WERE YOU FREAKING OUT, TOO? Oh, what's that? There are a million other nail polish blogs posting Valentine-themed nails all over the internet, and you're totally all set with all your V-Day nails this year and you don't even need my ideas at all?

Oh.

Well, tough shit. I've got one for you anyway!

I used Essie's A List (red), Sinful Colors' Snow Me White, and Revlon's Stiletto (black).

It's been quite awhile since the last time I did any hearts on my nails, so there were some serious practice rounds on paper before I even brought my dotting tool to my nail. And even with the practice rounds, I still ended up mucking it up and needing to wipe it off twice!

I did several Valentine's nails last year, if you want to check out any of those:

OH, by the way. Congratulations to Joey for winning my *first ever* giveaway! I'll be sending her a bottle of Revlon Orchid and a bottle of ORLY Preamp! HOOZAH FOR THAT!

What do you have planned for the weekend? Anything fun? I've got a fun brunch to go to tomorrow morning with a few other Vancouver bloggers. I love brunch and having blogging buddies, so it should be a great combo tomorrow!

  1. LOVE this sweet friend! I usually steer clear of reds because I can't ever find the "right" red--but I love this one! I might have to hunt it down! You wiped the heart off? HOW DID YOU DO THAT!?!? If I mess up on nail art--I just give up because I'm not redoing the whole effing nail. AND YAY FOR WINNING! Squeeee :-D
