Hello pretties! Just here with a quick peak at my nails for Valentine’s Day. I posted a photo in my Instagram and I then got a lot of questions as to what I used… so, here we are.
I wasn’t blessed with strong beautiful nails so I have to fake them. I very rarely venture into the whole world of nail art either, but I thought that I’d add a sweet touch to my nails this year for Valentine’s Day.
I used Ulta3 nailpolish in ‘Fruit Tingle’, Sportsgirl’s ‘Bionic’, 1000Hours Nail Design Pen in black and Inglot’s Fast Drying Top Coat
Added two coats of the Fruit Tingle on my nails except my ring finger on my left hand. When dry added one layer of top coat.
On my ring finger I did two coats of the Bionic. When dry, using a bobby pin and Fruit Tingle I made two lines in a V-shape to make the heart. There will be a lot of nailpolish on the bobby pin when start the V-shape, so it’s heavier on the top instead of the bottom.
For a personal touch I put my dude’s name on my pinky finger nail using the 1000Hours Nail Design Pen. I had his initials at first but I changed my mind.
Once everything is dry, one layer of top coat and we’re done.
Excuse the condition of my cuticles (I ran out of Lemony Flutter)
That’s my little Valentine’s Day nail design for this year. I hope everyone has a lovely day, regardless of if you have a Valentine or not.
What nail art did you do this year?
Hi everyone! I got asked this on Twitter recently about how I do my nails.
I just want to start off with saying that my nails really suck! They’re extremely thin (thin like paper) and they split constantly! So most of the time I wear fake nails.
I don’t go to the nail salon and get them done because I’m allergic to the acrylic liquid (I’m sure there’s a proper name for it) they use with the powder to fill in the nails.
I find that they the DIY nail routine I do doesn’t last as long as the one in the salon (mine last a week) but it doesn’t bother me. I usually do my nails whilst watching TV on the weekends.
So, this is my basic nail and hand routine. Takes all of about 30 minutes to do whilst watching TV and sipping my morning coffee.
