Featured: Valentine's Mani

Hey lovers! How's everyone doing on this fiiiiiiiine Wednesday morning?
If you've been stalking me for a while, you'd know that I'm usually not one for festive designs...
But today I have a....not so typical....Valentine's Day mani for you!

I'm pleased to also share that this mani was featured in an article on
(see full article: here)

Now, on to this mani...
I started this mani with absolutely NO idea what I was going to end up with....I find that at times I come up with the MOST random things when that happens. You guys, I LOVE RANDOM THINGS!!
Now that I look at it some more, I figured out what it kind of looks like: INSA!!
This guy's work is amazing, so make sure you go and check out his website.

To achieve the marbled background, I used a kitchen sponge and dabbed on the following :
China Glaze- Flip Flop Fantasy, Flying Dragon, Fairy Dust, Aquadelic and OPI- DS Magic

I really love how the colours turned out!!
I then added outlines of hearts and the details around it with a very thin brush using black acrylic paint.
The results was heart pumpingly good, and I'm extremely happy with the way everything worked out!

Wanna see my other hand? OK!
It's really blurry, so I won't blind you with a huge picture...haha!
I like both! ^_^

YAY for more features in articles!
YAY for Schmalentine's!
YAY for all you good looking peoples (yes you!)
Hope you enjoyed this mani as much as I did.

Have a wonderful day, peeps!
