Still Feeling The Love

Even though Valentine’s Day is over, I still have some cute nail designs for the holiday. This one was done with Claire’s mood polish, in Awesome/Silly, which is pink in both temperatures, so I found it to be perfectly suited for Valentine’s Day theme.

I used Konad image plate m3 for the tiny hearts, done in Konad Special Polish in White. These are so cute and dainty for the pale pink colour, they remind me of heart shaped clouds in a pink sky. Very Valentine’s-ey to me..

I think this is a really soft and sweet girly manicure, which fits perfectly for the holiday. When I think of this day i think everything girly and pink and very lovey dovey. This mani says all of that to me.

The image above is the cooler temperature, where it is a really really light pale pink shade. The image below in in water, so it is sort of in the middle of changing. I thought this was a cool shot so I added it in the post.

Now below is the warm temperature colour for the polish,. This one actually was hard to show because I had to use really hot water and it was burning my hand. You can see the water drops left on my nails because it would turn right back to cold if I dried them. This shade of pink is much warmer and I think it suits my skin better than the really pale one. It also shows the hearts a bit better as the white has more contrast against this darker pink.

Other than the length of my nails (don’t you hate when one breaks and then the rest all follow…) I really like this mani. I am definitely a fan of using mood polishes and Konad together because it completely changes the stamping and look of the design with a new background colour.

What do you guys think?

Great idea to stamp over a mood polish!

Super cute. I did almost the exact same mani last valentine's except not with mood polish. I gotta get me some of that!
