Manicure Monday: Valentine's Day Nail Art 2014

For this Manicure Monday, I'm going to post my nail for Valentine's Day.

I've been wanting to practice drawing hearts with my KKCenter Synthetic Fiber Nail Art Brushes. You can check out my review of the brushes and close-up of each brushes. This is what I came up with. I used 2 coats of OPI in In a Flirtationship on all my nails except the middle and ring finger. On my middle and ring finger, I used 2 coats of Forever21 Love & Beauty in Light Grey. Then I used the brushes to paint the heart. I used OPI in Black Onyx as the outside of the heart. In the inside, I use OPI in In a Flirtationship. Then I added 3 dots on the right corner with Essie in Blanc. I topped everything with Butter London Hardwear P.D Quick Topcoat. I used OPI Matte Topcoat on the heart. I think it came out okay and hopefully, people can see the heart.

Great nail art! I love the heart and all the sparkles. Happy Valentine's Day! Love from SITS

Alena@TheHomemadeCreative said...

Wow, cute! I rarely do my nails (lazy, bad with my left hand, perfectionist), but I've always thought nail art looks like fun.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you and Happy Valentine's Day to you too! :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I find it easier to paint my left hand (I'm right handed) than right. It just takes practice. I paint my nails while I'm sitting while watching TV.

Very cute! I love OPI, and this is a great color.

Wow those are some special nails. I never wear any nail polish. I don't feel like me if I do.

Cute and sparkly! I love how the heart is formed #SITSblogging

Angie Nelson said...

So very cute. I do not envy you getting that glitter off though. That's the only thing I hate about glitter polish!

Alena@TheHomemadeCreative said...

I never remember to do it, after my toddler goes to bed. I paint her nails sometimes, but rarely my own. I love the look, so I really should do it more!

Aimee Fauci said...

too cute! I wish I had nails so I could get all cute like this.

Amanda - A Cookie Named Desire said...

I love this idea! I have the perfect colors for this project. I think I am going to have to try it out during our snow-mageddon

Jing-Jing said...

I have a part time job as a waitress. Can't do my nails because they can chip and fall into customers' food >.<

Alissa | CleverCompass.com said...

Cute festive nail art!

Suzanne said...

Those are great - my daughter is always looking for new nail "patterns"...she's going to love it!

AngW said...

This is so pretty! I am absolutely rubbish at painting my nails, so I am always in awe of people who can manage to make them look good! I bet that polish is super-sparkly when you move your hands!

Such a great idea! I want to paint my nails now! #SITSBlogging

Very nice creativity! I am loving sparkly nail polish lately esp on my feet :-). With my job I cannot really wear much on my hands.

Cobberson & Co. said...

Super cute idea! I need to get my nails done :D #SITSBlogging

Gabrielle Daigle said...

Such a cute idea!! Found you via SITS!

Ahleessa said...

I love OPI too. They have the best color for great quality polishes.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I usually paint my nails while watching TV. It's fast and then I have time for it to dry.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! Wearing nail polishes aren't for everyone. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! For some odd reason, the glitters are flicking off. I guess with time I won't have any glitter left... lol~

Ahleessa said...

Awww~ I'm sure you can have cute nails. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I would love to see your results. Please tell me when you post it. :)

Ahleessa said...

Ahhh~ That's so true. My friend waits on the weekend so she wears nail polish Monday to Friday. Now I understand. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I bet it'll look great on your daughter. If you post it, I would love to see it. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! I think painting your nails just take practice. Yes, it is super sparkly when I move around... hehe~

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :) I hope you will eventually stop biting your nails.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! Sparkly polishes are gorgeous.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! You should paint your nails. It's fun and festive. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! At least you are wearing nail polishes on your toes. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you!

Ahleessa said...

I'm sure it's hard to paint your nails with a child, but that's so cute you paint your child's nail. :)

Alecia@Detoursinlife said...

I love your nails! I wish I had the time and talent to make mine look so good. This winter they have really taken a beating! Thank you for sharing!

Amanda // Happily Ever After said...

Love the nails!!

Ahleessa said...

You're welcome! Winter is always touch on the skin and nails. I don't blame you.

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! You should try it. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! :)

Alma @ A Conquered Mess said...

It's too cute! I love it, I just wish I had more time to do my nails. Or have less dishes to wash lol, it seems like every time I fix my nails they're chipped within 2 days. Maybe I'm just using the wrong nail polish or not letting them dry properly? #SITSBlogging.

Angela Gilmore said...

These look so cute! Does the heart still show up when you're moving your fingers around? Stopping by from #SITSBlogging.

Ahleessa said...

When you frequently wash dishes, the nail polishes don't last that long compared to someone who doesn't wash dishes. You might want to try a better top coat. That might help. I recommend Seche Vite. It's the fastest drying top coat I have ever tried and it helps with my nail polish longevity. I hope it helps you. :)

Ahleessa said...

Thank you! Unfortunately, it doesn't show when I move my fingers but people can figure out it's a heart.
