My daughter picked these polishes for me. Actually I shut the box after the first three polishes she picked, I dont think she would have stopped at three or four or five. The more the merrier 🙂 But it was so much fun.
Its here! My valentines mani! 😀 Little things-great joy! I did this in a rush (as usual) and it shows. But I still like it. Also it looks atleast ten times better in person than here. I hope I will remember to re-do this mani . I really like the negative space nails, and for the first time in years (seriously!) my nails are not stained, so I dont feel bad showing them. Hurray to that!

This mani here is not much but baby steps will do for now. I really don’t remember much. There is a white, a black. That grey is from OPI. I have love-hate relationship with it. It goes from smooth and perfect one time to streaky and impossible next time. If I didnt know better I’d say I have two bottles of the same polish. Weird, huh!? Any thoughts? That glitter topper China Glaze Boo-gie Down. Love it!
Now I really really want to do a nice valentine mani. Dear God of time! please relent, give me an extra hour today! 🙂
This looked infinitely cool in person. Or atleast that is what I remember. 😛 I love flakies and as painful as the Revlon flakies are they do look gorgeous.
I like glitter over gradient combinations. They look beautiful. Also the glitter beutifully hides any sloppily done gradient. Like here. 🙂
I have a cousin who is crazy about the red-black pairing. She’d love these. I like them too. What I do not like is the cleanup. Now to the gradient. I am working on it. I should have a good one by the end of month…or by the end of next month. 😛
And something totally unexpected happened while I was doing the gradient. I have my first completely used up bottle of polish. It felt good scooping the last bit of polish. Well timed too,as I was doing a gradient.I am not big red polish person, I think this was the only true red creme polish I had and it was only 8ml. which explains how managed to finish it. Anyway! There was never a better reason to buy a new polish. Huh?! 🙂
This accent was absolutely gorgeous, more so in person. I tried, but couldn’t really capture it. It glittered and twinkled and reflected all sorts of colors. Some Like It Haute is one of my favorite glitter. Add some flakies to it and….sensational!!
The matte version.
PS:The reason I layered the flakies over the glitter.
Opi Ink is so much more beautiful than what these pictures show. These pictures miss the gorgeous blue and pink shimmer that makes Ink the beauty it is. And it loses none of its charm when mattified. I loved the mani more than I thought I would.
I have been busy and sick and lazy. Its a miracle this post is even being written. 😀
