Dark Valentine

Well technically this was for a family dinner get together yesterday but I like it a lot so I'm keeping it as my Vday mani as well!

2 coats of Barielle Coalest Day of the Year, China Glaze Millennium for the stamp on plate m12 from The Born Pretty Store and finally Lippmann Some Enchanted Evening to accent the flowers.

Here is a shot of everything I used.  Hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day ♥ ♥ ♥

I purchased the China Glaze, the rest I have previously reviewed on my blog.

Purple glitter gradient

 This is one of my new frankens, its a super fine dark purple glitter.  This version also has holographic square glitter.

This was 1 coat like a french manicure but I did it all messy to help blend the 2nd coat.  Then once that dried I went back and gave it the gradient look by just barely sweeping the brush towards my cuticle and blending it together.

Then I just added a few extra silver hex glitters to help the gradient look. I finished it off with a topcoat sandwich which is 1 coat of SV after I'm done and letting it dry completely, then 1 coat of a normal drying clearcoat, followed by another coat of SV.

Have a great weekend everyone!

$OPI Teal We Meet Again

2 coats with Nubar Diamont.  I had to decant this because it broke during shipping but I was able to save almost all of it.  That's it for today, just a quickie!
