We’re in February and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. We don’t celebrate it though. Our anniversary is on Feb 11th so we celebrate that, but we don’t need society to tell us on what day we should shower each other with gifts and love. We do that all year round because love should be celebrated all the time. That’s just how we are.
That being said, I still do nail art for it because I like to do nail art and I find it easier with a theme. So why not? Also, NailPolishCanada is having a Valentines Nail Art Challenge so I’ll be doing 2-3 nail arts and choose my favourite to submit to the challenge.
I had this jelly sandwich idea in mind so I decided to try it out.
For this look I used, in order:
- OPI “Nail Envy” as base coat (not shown);
- Essie – some white sheer polish x2 coats;
- Konad “Red” to stamp with plate BM-311 on my ring finger and BM-317 on all other fingers;
- China Glaze “Fairy Dust” x1 coat;
- Essie white sheer polish x1 coat;
- Nubar “Diamont” top coat (not shown).
The reason why I say “some white sheer polish” from Essie is because on the bottle is says “Ador-a-ball”, but that is the wrong name. “Ador-a-ball is actually a sheer pink polish, not a white one. I contacted Essie to try to find out what colour I have. They refunded me for the bottle, but I was never able to get an answer about the colour. They asked me for the bottle code and UPC code and all, but they never came back with a colour. So it shall remain “some white sheer polish”.
And voilà! I messed up the alignment on my thumb and ring finger, but oh well. It’s still not that bad. 🙂
That Konad “Red” is a polish made especially for stamping so it’s uber pigmented. It kind of stained my fingers around the nails where the stamps overlapped on my skin – it was really hard to completely clean off.
I’m still really happy with how these turned out.
