Valentine’s Day Nails

Hi guys!! Valentine’s Day is approaching, so here are my Valentine’s Day Nails. I wanted them to be pink and girly and I think I managed to make them like that. And I used the reverse stamping technique to make it a bit more interesting. Now let’s get started with the mani.

So, the base colour for these nails was Il Etait Un Vernis – A Thousand Kisses*. I did two coats and while I was waiting for the polish to dry I picked the hearts pattern from Born Pretty store Celebration plate No. L014* (ID: 38220) with Essie – Watermelon (by the way, this polish is great for stamping). After the pattern on stamper dried I filled the hearts with Il Etait Un Vernis – HOLO(VE)* and Il Etait Un Vernis – Crazy Little Thing*. All IEUV polishes were part of their Spring 2016 collection and you can find all the swatches in the link.

When the hearts dried I stamped the pattern on to my middle finger. I did the same with the cats and the heart on my thumb. Well the heart on my thumb was an ordinary stamping, so I stamped it on my thumb immediately.

I waited a bit and then I sealed my Valentine’s Day mani with the fast drying top coat.

What do you guys think? Oh, and the patterns on the plate were transferring perfectly. You can find it here and don’t forget to use my 10% off code: LQBW10 when purchasing there ;).

Thank you for your time and see you in the next post. xoxo

    I think this is a lovely mani for Valentines Day! You I’ve never tried reverse stamping that way. By filling the image in and then stamping it onto the nail.

      Thank you Sasha! Yes, I haven’t tried that yet and so far I like it better than making it on the mat. I will see when there will be more colours involved, with a more complex pattern. But I will definitely do it “straight from the stamper” again.

      Hvala Petra <3 Stamping je lahko naporen, če stamper ni vredu. Vsaj pri meni. Oz. če laki niso pravi za štemplanje.
