I've Got a Heart On

Another Valentine's Day themed manicure! It was originally planned to be all 5 nails with a masked splatter design, but it just didn't look right, so I decided to change it up a bit. I loved how the thumbnail turned out, so I kept that splatter pattern, and changed the other nails. I had an idea a while back to do heart shaped leopard spots for Valentine's day, so I did that on the index finger, a varying thickness line-based heart for the middle finger, stitched hearts over glitter for the ring finger, and the way I draw hearts when I write them on paper. :)

I have to say, this manicure just reminded me how much I truly love the Milani one-coat glitters. I hear there are new ones coming out, and I WISH WISH WISH that they were sold in India. I need to get my hands on them! :)  I hope you like these hearty nails, there is one more Valentine's Day themed design tomorrow! :)

I used:


Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On for the base, with Color Club Yum Gum, Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love, American Apparel Port, and Milani one-coat glitter in Red Sparkle splattered over it. I masked off a heart before I splattered.


Color Club Yum Gum as a base, with Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love for the hearts, outlined with American Apparel Hassid.


Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On for the base, with Nicole by OPI Redy to Runaway Love for the lines.


Milani one-coat glitter in Red Sparkle for the base, with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On and Color Club Yum Gum for the dotted heart lines.


American Apparel Port for the base, with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On for the design.

Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite topcoat.
