Happy Valentine's Day!

Since tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I thought I would go with an appropriately girly manicure, and nothing says Valentine's Day like hearts, glitter, and the color pink.

I had originally planned to paint my nails alternating red and white polish, with some Jordana brand  heart glitter I bought at Kmart, but when I tried to use it, I could get very little of the hearts to get on the nail polish brush. It was a bit of a disappointment. Instead, I used three different polishes, all from the Sinful Colors line available from Walgreens. I have pink polish and pink glitter on most of my nails, with a white accent nail featuring red confetti hearts from Sally Beauty Supply. I really like how they turned out, but for some reason they took forever to dry. It must be the Sinful Colors brand.

I had a friend over Saturday night for manicure night, and she painted her nails purple with some freehand silver accent strokes. Right now I'm still too unsure of painting freehand designs on my right with my left hand and getting it to look right, but hers look great!

See you next week!
