Today I have a mushy love mani for you. Some people are anti-Valentine’s Day, some people get overly mushy, and some people are just in the middle. I am more in the middle, I have been married for 9 years now and Valentine’s Day is special don’t get me wrong, but as cheesy as it may sound, every day is Valentine’s Day. Okay, maybe not every day, but we try to make life special every day, our relationship special every day, so I am more of an in the middle kind of gal when it comes to the actual Valentine’s Day. We went out to dinner and a movie last week, (Not going ON the day, too crazy, and we figured that this weekend would also be insane). We saw Warm Bodies and went to a Hibachi Steak and Seafood grill, which was delish!
I call this a mushy mani as I took out every love, heart, rose, etc. stamp that I had for todays nails. lol
I started out by painting three coats of “e.l.f. – pearl pink” This is a very light and subtle shimmery, pearly pink.
My thumb, I used Stamp OB-M I dotted two of the roses with “Zoya - Suri” and the last one with “China Glaze – Adventure Red-y” and the stems and leaves I dotted with “Ulta - Envy”. I also took two hearts from stamp “SE-20″ off of the xoxo stamp to add to the side of the roses.
My ring finger, I used the stamp “SE-21″ I put a dot of “Suri” in the middle and outlined it with “Adventure Red-y”
For my pinky I used the same stamp from “OB-M” I finished off all of the roses with a little glitter “Milani – art of silver”, I don’t know if you have ever seen the glitter dusted roses, that is what I was going for.
I used the hearts stamp from “SE-21″ on my pointer finger and where I placed it wasn’t center so the bottom part of my nail was exposed and looked odd… I re-stamped some more of the hearts from the same stamp in the red. The reflection spots in the stamp, I accentuated with the glitter.
I then used the ‘xoxo’ stamp from “SE-20″ and put the xoxo in the red and the hearts in the purple. Once done, I then added two more hearts from same stamp in the red.
Here is the final look.
The other hand, I got lazy and it was getting late last night.. lol so I used the same base, but alternated the red and the purple on every other finger, using stamp “OB-M” the heart, again accented with the glitter.
So what do you have plans this Valentine’s day?
