♥ MANICURE MONDAY ♥ Valentine’s Day Inspired


Hi Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend. Today i’m doing a Valentine’s Day inspired nail look. I chose Private Weekend (as a base for the Hearts), A LIST and GROOVE IS IN THE HEART. I didn’t go for an over the top look, i just did a simple heart design on my one nail.


A LIST   is from the Summer 2015 Collection. A List is my favourite red out of all the reds. It a classic creamy red that is timeless. It has a very thin formula so i did 3 thin coats for full opacity and topped it with the Essie Gel Setter Top Coat


GROOVE IS IN THE HEART   is from the Neon’s 2015 Collection. I’m not much of a pink person, but this pink has a peachy undertone which i love. Its a very thick formula so becareful when applying it. You could get away with 1 generous coat but i did 2 thin coats and topped it again with the Essie Gel Setter top coat.

HEARTS    i used a Essie’s Private Weekend as a base for the hearts. You can use any white you have eg: Blanc, Marshmallow etc. I used a dotting tool to create the 2 hearts, using Essie A List and Groove Is In The Heart.


Hope you all have a great Monday and rest of the week
