Manic(ure) Monday: Valentine's Nails


As Valentine's Day is just around the corner this post had to include some lovely, pink manicure. I'm not really good at painting hearts on my nails and even if there are a lot of seemingly easy tutorials on how to do it, I always failed when trying one of them. A lot of you keep telling me that they are not really talented when it comes to nail art and apart from some more tricky tutorials, I always try to keep my manicures as easy as possible. That's why I also chose the easiest Valentine's manicure I could find. But take a look at it for yourselves. Oh and I almost forgot to mention that I bought some nail art display sticks on Ebay which I used for today's manicure. The reason is that I'm trying to spare my own nails a little bit because they had nail polish on them almost every day since I started my manicure posts over one year ago which made them really dry and damaged. I'm also trying a new care product which I will be reviewing next Tuesday. But now let's finally go over to the easy Valentine's manicure:


As you can see this manicure is about creating the hint of a heart at the tips of your nails. You can do it even without any sticky tape but if you don't think you will get it like this without help then you can do the tutorial I will add below.





What I used:

Uma Cosmetics colour effect
Flormar Neon Colours N003

Other Valentine's tutorials:




Oh and there's another thing I still wanted to show you but always forgot about it! Some of you asked me to tell you how long the fish egg manicure stayed on my nails.I took some pictures the day the manicure started peeling off and it was on Thursday so the manicure looks good for about 3-4 days. Here are the pics:



 Hope you liked today's manicure. How are you going to paint your nails for Valentine's Day?
