Valentine’s Day nails 2 ways

After playing around with some nail polish colour combos, I finally picked one that I felt wasn’t too in your face for Valentine’s Day and could easily be worn any other time of year. Here are two simple looks for this weekend’s celebrations (or this week, if you’re like me and having a hard time containing all the pink and red in your life haha).

Both of these looks are based off the same main glitter tip gradient for majority of the nails. Start with a solid base (I used three coats of the nude polish) before starting the glitter gradient. Apply a thin layer of glitter polish starting from the tip of the finger to the middle of the nail. From there, generously dab glitter on the tip of the nail. Let fully dry before finishing off with top coat.

For the first look, I did four coats of the glitter on the accent nail, letting each coat dry before applying the next.

For the second look, I used gold nail tape instead of glitter polish to do a more subtle accent nail.
