Gold Filigree

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!.

Valentine's Glitter Placement

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.

Love Letter

 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.

Pink Half and Half

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.

Black Netting

This is the first time I've done a tinted negative space design. I used Zoya Dovima and Zoya Anais, for the negative space I mixed some clear and black to get a bit of a dark tint.
