Valentine's Day Nails



Yes... I know.. Valentine's Day is still a good few weeks away but to be honest this cute bit of nail art works whenever. And it's so simple and easy to do.  

I painted on two coats of Sally Hansen in Peachy Keen £7.99 which I am totally obsessed with. Two coats is just the right amount of sheer-ness and gives nails pretty sugared almond look - LOVE. I then took a make up sponge (you can get a giant pack from Primark for a pound) and gently dabbed on Maybelline Color Show in Knitted Gold £3.99. If you want to achieve a glitter fade really easily this is by far the best method. Knitted Gold is one of their 'brocade' style polishes and is jam packed with pink iridescent glitter. It's SO pretty. I then took the shade Suffuse from Topshop £6 with my dotting tool and added the heart and the lips, before adding the Maybelline shade over the top to match the other nails. 

I've done another Valentine's Day look which is much more colorful and typically girly so if you like love hearts keep an eye out for that one later on this week! Is this look something you'd try?
