Conversation With a Crunch


Hey all!! Happy Valentine's eve! In honor of tomorrow being Valentine's Day, I did conversation heart nails! :) I had them on the list, but they were also a request from reader 'Ms. Moment'. :)



I used OPI Gargantuan Green Grape matte for the thumb, China Glaze Lemon Fizz for the index, China Glaze Peachy Keen for the middle, essie Lilacism for the ring finger, and American Apparel Palm Coney Island for the pinky. For the lettering, I mixed American Apparel Palm Coney Island with China Glaze Salsa. Topped everything off with two coats of Essie Matte About You to get that chalky candy finish.

*No Conversation Hearts were wasted in the creation of this nail design, they were all eaten.

  7. I love how the 'TALK' in SWEET TALK looks double stamped. Very realistic!
    Man- these, candy corn, and "Peeps"- holiday specific iconic candy that is forever etched in our hearts (pun intended) and minds. Why are they so comforting?

  8. It would be better with nasty phrases like "get a life" or "attention whore" or even better "fuck yourself alone looser".

I am also a nail art enthusiast but my crush has developed lately, you know a couple of months old.I have always read more of international blogs on nail art than indian. So good to see this one.I am trying for free hand now but not half as good. I also stay in Mumbai. Have started writing a blog lately
