The Nail Files Thursday: 'Love Your Life' Valentine Manicure

by - Thursday, February 09, 2012

I am terribly unhappy with this manicure.

A valentine manicure epic fail! It's so blah. I didn't realise that the heart glitter polish was exactly the same shade as my base colour, they looked totally different in the bottles!

I used three coats of china glaze in strawberry smoothie and six coats of nicole by OPI love your life.

I really wanted multi coloured hearts, but sadly that polish by Maybelline that I have been longing for has been discontinued. Boo hoo. So I had to settle for an OPI polish.

I'm still undecided on whether I like the glitter heart polish or not. I do like the glittery shimmer, but there needs to be more hearts. I found that all the hearts stuck to the sides of the bottle, even when I stuck a tooth pick in to try and mix it all up. I would have loved more hearts on my nails then glitter.

It's not one of my favourite manicures. I'll have to try it over a contrasting base colour next time.
