Vintage Romance

Good morning everyone!! How was Valentine's for you? It was our first V-day post marriage & we celebrated with a nice candlelight dinner, flowers & a red velvet cake I baked. I wanted to do a special mani for the day but I can't draw intricate hearts & I don't own any nail stamps. So I decided to go with a soft vintage feel on my nails. This one was seriously time consuming & required a ton of materials, but the end result was surely worth it.
For the index finger, I used a soft blue & white polish & striping tape to create the stripes & topped it with a fimo heart (cute, no?). The middle finger has a light pink base with glitter. On the ring, light blue base with pink roses, & a pearl, rhinestone & stud on a glitter pink base for the pinky.

Red with Rhinestones

Good morning everyone!! The wedding season is on in full swing & this is how I did my nails for the wedding I'd to attend last week. I was running short on time & patience, so I simply chose to go with a blinged-out accent nail. Applied two coats of this amazing red & used beads, studs & rhinestones on the ring finger. It turned out to be simple yet eye catching. What do you think??
