OK, now for the non-lovey dovey Valentine's manicure...
I'm a bit of a history dork, and I remember Valentine's Days past watching the St. Valentine's Day Massacre documentaries and specials on the History Channel. Pretty romantic, right? If you're not familiar, the St. Valentine's Day massacre occurred the morning of February 14, 1929, in Chicago as part of a conflict between the Italian gang, led by Al Capone, and the Irish gang, led by Bugs Moran. The 7 victims were all Moran's men (not all gang members, but affiliated with Moran), though the believed target, Bugs Moran himself, was not harmed.
Anyway, a somewhat grisly Valentine's Day manicure. Enjoy! :)
I used Essie Barefoot & Topless as a base for the flesh colored nails, and American Apparel Hassid for the pinstriped nails. For the stripes, I used Nubar Stronghold, and for the bullet holes, I used American Apparel Port, and then American Apparel Port and Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love for the blog drips. I also used American Apparel Port and Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love for the blood splatter on the 'suit' nails. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite topcoat.
Happy Valentine's Day! :)
