Valentine French Manicure

Here's the manicure I wore leading up to this wonderful Valentine's Day. :)

It's a super simple manicure. Basically, just a French manicure with rhinestones.

I used these cute little yellow heart rhinestones I got for Christmas from my mom. I also tried using a different base. Normally I use a more neutral beige for my French manicures, but I tried a sheer pink this time.

I've noticed that pinker French manicure tend to look more feminine while more neutral French manicures seem more professional. I'd recommend a sheer pink if you have a warm skin tone and a sheer beige for cooler skin tones.

Either way, they both look clean and classic. Just go with what you love. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tiny Hearts Manicure

Hey guys! Just a couple more days until Valentine's! This is a cute little design I cooked up a week or two ago. They were inspired by French manicures, but I used red for the base and cute little hearts for the tips!

These were super easy to do. All you need is a dotting tool or a toothpick.

Make two little dots next to each and use the toothpick to drag the polish down, connecting them into hearts!

I think this would look pretty cute if you used a light pink instead of a red. Perfect for pretty princesses or lolitas! :D

Valentine Confetti Manicure

St. Valentine's Day is coming up! This the first Valentine's Day in 5 years that I'll be single... Strangely, I can't wait! Ha! :)

So this is a really simple manicure. I just painted my nails purple and attached some X's and O's confetti with a few hearts thrown in there too! :D
