Nail Art Tutorial: V-Day Nails - The Last Hurrah!

Valentine's Day definitely talks about romance, lots of flowers and love!  No wonder I didn't have a hard time doing Valentine's Day inspired nails as I'm in love with the theme!  Well not to forget, I am in love :)

I did promise last week's nail art tutorial that it'll be the final red and pink combination for Valentine's Day, but I did not promise to stop doing Valentine's Day nails!  That's where the name came from --- The Last Hurrah!  Definitely the final V-day nails for the year 2010!

I want to make it easy especially there's 2 days away from Heart's Day!

Here's My V-Day Nails ---
The Last Hurrah!


Step 1:
Apply your choice of base coat to protect your nails prior to nail polish application.  Let Dry.
Apply 2 coats of ELF Nail Polish in Champagne. 

Step 2:
Making sure the 2 coats of nail polish are dry, create French Tip using L.A. Colors Art Deco in white or any regular matte white polish.


Step 3:
Using Elianto's glittery polish, brushed on 1 coat of it to create a bit of shimmer and glitter.  You can skip this step if you don't like the shine.

Step 4:
Making sure step 3's polish is dry.  Use a tweezer to stick on the remaining stickers from my previous nail art tutorial, alternating flowers and hearts.


Step 5:
Protect the stickers with your choice of Top Coat.  I am going back to The Face Shop's Top Coat (I'm on my 3rd bottle baby!)


Sit back, relax!  Isn't it nice to have lovely nails with or without a date?


Advance Happy Valentine's Day!
What's your prettifying trick for the Heart's Day?
I'd love to know!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    It looks easy enough but I'm afraid I'll mess up the French tip part. Any tips (pardon the pun) for an art duff with shaky hands like me?
