Valentine's Day Nails - 2015 - Set 1

Hey everyone!

Sorry I have not posted in a bit.. I was sort of waiting to see if a February nail art challenge would be posted up.. and then I had a few posts just waiting.. and finally I was like 'edit those photos and get some posts going' - so, I shall.

I am going to hopefully do another set or 2 of Valentine's Day nails. I have approximately 10 ideas jotted down in a notebook, but I don't think I will complete that many. I figure at least another 1 or 2. Mayhaps 3.

I am not a huge celebrator of Valentine's Day.. like.. not couple-y things. My dude and I met 2 years ago on Valentine's Day.. and have mostly been together since.. so I guess that is cool? I just like to either do absolutely nothing, or hang out/go out with friends - which is what the plan is for this year. What is your Valentine's Day plans? Let me know in the comments!

So, for those of you going out, or even just staying in, but want fun nails - maybe you can gather some inspiration from these posts? Who knows.

My first set of nails is a classic (ish?) nail art technique: braid. You can scope out exactly how to do it HERE. I love it because when you are finished, people are like 'ummm.. how?' and really, once you start it, you realize how simple it is.. and how awesome it looks when finished.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Formula X for Sephora Brazen (light pink)
  • Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink (pink)
  • China Glaze With Love (red)
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Those are the polish I used.. basically for a braid mani, you need three colours, can be any colours you want, and just go to town. I promise you will love how it looks when you are all done!

See you all soon with another post!
