02/14/12 - Happy Valentine's Day!

First of all: happy Valentine's day! I hope you all are having a great day and are thinking of happiness, love, and peace.
Second of all: I love, love, LOVE the nails I did for this occasion! My favourite that I've ever done. So excited!

Here it is! I decided to celebrate an iconic relationship - that of Mickey and Minnie Mouse. :D On my fingers are alternating hearts and the mouse head - though they ended up looking similar so, meh.
But my thumbs! I'm so proud of how they turned out.
All the designs are done with Migi Nail Art Pens, except for the face flesh colour which is done with Love&Beauty - Taupe. And, of course, that background colour! OMGGGG! xD I love it. I have been wanting a silver holo for basically as long as I've known there was one (over a year). Finally last week I ordered Glitter Gal - Silver 3D Holo, and I am NOT disappointed! I love it! I did paint it on over Sally Hansen - Wet Cement, because this polish is known to definitely not be a one-coat polish. Since it's such a little bottle and so amazing I didn't want to use 2-4 coats to reach opacity, and my tests on paper found that it looks amazing over Wet Cement. I have an extra long swatch post planned for this holo!
Here is a closer picture of my fingers, as well as the only sunlight picture I really liked of the holo. I found that even in artificial light it looked amazing, and the pictures weren't really capturing anything beyond even in the sunlight. But I think it's great. :)




So to conclude this post, Happy Valentine's Day! Please let me know if you love my nails as much as I do. I've been showing them off all day. :D
