Valentines Day manicure

Hi ladies! Just a super quick post to show you my very quick Valentines Day manicure. I've been very busy these last few days with work and social events so I haven't had a chance to do much blog stuff or blog reading unfortunately. Haven't really had time to do much including sleep x) I also went for a job interview on Saturday for a 2nd job and was offered the position on the spot! WOOT! They were desperate what can I say haha. It's a casual nurse position mainly for the weekends so with my current fulltime job I'll be working 6-7 days a week soon. This means much less leisure time but enables me to save up for things a lot sooner!

I'm not a big fan of Valentines Day as I think it's turned into such a cheesy holiday to give retailers an excuse to hawk unnecessary items to unwitting men and women in the name of "love". Love should be celebrated and appreciated EVERYDAY not just when Hallmark tells us too! It didn't stop me from still doing a Valentines mani or planning a nice Thai dinner tonight for me and the boy though lol. I was planning to do a soft, pinky manicure as the boy prefers my nails simple but as usual I got carried away!

I started off with 2 coats of Borghese Bellissima Rose. Bellissima Rose is a gorgeous dark berry pink almost red creme. It's a gorgeous colour! The brush was fantastic to use and meant I had very minimal cleanup. The polish is very opaque and 1 thick coat would be sufficient but I did 2. Dry time was good and the polish dried to a very glossy finish.

I then added heart nail stickers, rhinestones, half pearls and dazzlings to complete the look.

I hope you all have a lovely Valentines Day! Don't forget to enter My Big Birthday Giveaway!

Thanks for looking! =)

  2. That's such a cute mani my dear! I love the heart stickers they are adorable <3 I am not a huge fan of Valentine's either for the exact same reason. My darling hates it completelly so we never clelebrate. He says when you love someone, it should be celebrated everyday and not once a year. I am still doing a mani though XD

  4. I just love your nails! So beautiful!

    Question-did you say that you got your gradient manicure kit in Hong Kong? My husband is going there in March and I have a list started of all the great beauty products that I want him to get for me!! If you think there are some 'must-haves' that I should add to my list, please tell me!

    Thanks!

  12. ´Chelle, I agree about this cheesy comercial holiday. We don´t celebrate it here in Brazil(Our correspondent to Valentine´s in on june 12), but as we´re global now, we end up participating somehow. Your mani is awesome. I loved the polish even without the art. But when you put the little hearts, it got to me. Congrats! You´re very creative. Enjoy your Thai dinner!
