Valentine's Day mani!

While my husband and I don't really "celebrate" Valentine's Day in any special way, other than to spend time together-- but I do enjoy having a fun manicure for the day! I was really struggling with ideas for what to do for a Valentine's day manicure-- I had several ideas but really wasn't motivated by any of them. 

Originally, I was going to use Nostalgic Lacquer Girls On Film, but then I fell in love with All That Glitters Go Away. So I decided to pair Go Away with China Glaze Escaping Reality (my new favorite pink) and just do an accent nail. I was originally thinking I might do some stamping and actually practiced this past weekend... but in the end I was too tired and lazy to try anything exciting or new.

Hope that if you're celebrating you're having a fun day doing something special with those you love!


  1. LOVE! The colors look great together! And good for you for actually practicing your stamping before tossing a post up, lol. I should probably take a cue. ;) Happy Valentine's Day :)

    1. Thanks! I was really happy with how it turned out. I really need to just take the plunge and do a stamping mani, but I haven't had the time yet!
