Good afternoon (early evening?)! How about a Valentine's mani? This mani made me so happy - I wore it for 4 days with barely any wear and tear what so ever! All the polish I used was absolutely fabulous and high quality and I loved them all to pieces! I used a mix of indie, mainstream and drugstore brands to create this look. Now that I think of it I used 6 polishes total in this mani! Let's look at it shall we?
Alright, I'll try to keep this short so you can see pictures. I started with Ninja Polish Ambrosia on my middle finger and thumb. Ambrosia is a gorgeous red with a pink undertone and loads of red and gold color shifting shimmer. I used 3 coats of Ambrosia to reach maximum color richness. I used China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around on my ring and pinky nails. Dandy Lyin' Around is a white base with tiny silvery flakes. I used 2 coats of Dandy Lyin' Around. I topped these nails with Lumina Lacquer No Ordinary Love. Wow! I love this glitter polish! Red, pink and red-orange colored matte glitters in hex, circle, star and heart shapes! I used 2 coats of No Ordinary Love and the glitter pay-out was huge. The glitter came out easily and spread evenly on my nails. With a good thick layer of topcoat my nails were nice a smooth to the touch. Lastly I decided to do a texture gradient on my index finger nail. I put OPI Solitaire (white with silvery glitter sparkles) and Magazine Cover Mouse (red with fuchsia and gold glitter sparkles) on a sponge and applied it to my nail. I did this about 2 or 3 times to get full color coverage. I thought the red was too pink toned so I added Julie G Sugar Rush to the top and loved how it gave a red-orange color with some serious gold sparkle factor! I used 1 layer of topcoat on all nails except the texture nail.
