NOTD: Valentines Edition

Another Valentines themed post?! I know, I know. Last one, promise. Valentines Day is nearly over in little ol' Perth but only just beginning in some places so I thought I'd quickly show you some simple nail art that I wore today.

I started by applying a base coat, the Essie All In One being my first choice. I then applied three coats of China Glaze's Something Sweet and waited until morning so that my nails could dry completely. To create the hearts, I used a piece of sticky tape- folding it in half and cutting half a heart, only to reveal a full heart when opened up (does this make any sense at all?). I then stuck the sticky tape over my nail and painted over it in Topshop's Pillarbox. I then removed the tape and did some small touch ups with Something Sweet. I also would have gone over with a top coat but I didn't have enough time to wait for them to dry completely and the red would have smudged, however if you do have enough time I'd definitely recommend it.

Even though I only got to have these for one day because of work, I think they're a perfect yet simple way of adding a bit of flair on Valentines Day!

Did you do any nail art for Valentines?
