What I'd like to show you today is my first Valentine's Day manicure of this year. It's a simple grey and white manicure with some vintage melancholic air. For this mani I used Essence Get Arty as a base, and stamped on it with white konad special polish using Konad plate m-65 for the roses pattern.
Later on I stamped with konad red wine special polish and plate m2 the hearts with the Love inscription.
The Essence polish was also kindly sent to me by my Polish Fairy Christine from Polished Marvels. I stupidly forgot to take a picture of the polish itself, but it's a gorgeous shade of grey with orange flakies. Really pretty, though my pictures don't show all the beauty of it. You can also win this shade on my giveaway! you can still enter here if you haven't already.
I eventually thought this mani needed some spice-up, and ended up dabbing Essence special effect topcoat in Purplicious on the tips of my nails. This one was also sent to me by Christine! Isn't this lady just awesome!
Please let me know your thoughts about it! What are your plans for Valentine's day?
