I love today's nails! For the filigree design, I initially outlined the design n white and I almost decided against going over it with gold, just leaving the white, but I'm glad I went through with it anyway! For the gradient, from top to bottom, I used Color Club Kiss My French, Xtreme Wear Pop Chart, Zoya Reagan, Zoya Moxie, China Glaze Seduce Me. For the detail work I used OPI Golden Rules!.

I don't think anyone would be surprised that I did a glitter placement design for Valentine's Day. Because of the shape of the glitter, the heart had to be more narrow than I would have wanted, but I still like how it looks. It might be a bit difficult to make out the heart in pictures, but in person its much more distinct. For the glitter placement I used Milani Hot Pink and Milani Silver. The glitter gradient nail was done using both Milani Hot Pink and Xtreme Wear Pink-y Ring on Color Club Vintage Couture.

Hello! Today I have some actual Valentine's nails. I've never done any love letter nails before and I wanted to go full out with this design. We have a bird delivering the letter, the letter waiting in the mailbox, opening the letter full of love, and then what's written in the letter! These are definitely some of my favorite Valentine's nails ever; they're so sweet and I love how they sort of tell a story. For the base colors I used Color Club Kiss My French, and China Glaze New Birth, and the details are primarily China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss, China Glaze Dune Our Thing, China Glaze Tart-y For The Party, and Essie Petal Pushers.

This started out as a Valentine's Day design but it ended up being just more of a generic floral design. I was going to put heart gems going down the center between the two patterns, but I ended up not really liking how it was looking, so I just left the nails how they are. I used China Glaze Fresh Prince-ss.

Today I'm wearing this holo glitter placement design. Glitter placements are some of my favorite manicures to do and I wanted to make this design look a little bit different from what I typically do, so I placed the glitter to kind of look like it was streaming down. The base is Zoya Aspen and I picked the holo glitter out of OPI When Monkeys Fly!. These nails are super cool and shiny, which unfortunately is really hard to pick up with still images, but I tried my best.
