NOTD: Valentine Mani #1

It's finally February and Valentines Day is right around the corner! Despite being single, I'm actually really excited. It's the perfect excuse to bust out all my pink polishes! I went for a color-blocking technique for this mani and I love it! I'll have a few more Valentine NOTDs coming up so look out for those! 


What I Used:

L.A Colors Basecoat/Topcoat Duo
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City
L.A Colors in Summertime (lightest pink)
L.A Colors in Fuel (middle pink)
Funky Fingers in Pop Artist (hot pink) 
nail tape or regular tape cut into small strips. 

I started by applying my base coat and 2 coats of Celeb City. I gave my nails about 2 hours to dry just to make sure no polish would come off when I took the tape off. I took my tape and made random sections trying to make each nail different. If your having trouble sectioning them, this Pinterest board really helped me. Once I had them sectioned I painted them in which can be pretty messy. I took a q-tip soaked in acetone polish remover to make them look a little neater. I removed the tape exposing the silver lines and followed up with a topcoat. Then your finished! It's a little tedious and requires some patience but I love the outcome! 

What do you think? If you try this be sure to tweet me pictures @beautybloggerrr
