BEAUTY EDIT: Quick and easy Valentine’s Day nails!

What’s pink, fluffy and covered in hearts? Valentine’s Day of course! With the most romantic day of the year right around the corner, I’ve put together a couple of fun nail looks to get you into the holiday of love. While one is more traditional, the other is a bit dark and moody, so there is something to suit everyone.

Hope you enjoy!

The Girly Mani. This is a really simple look that will suit practically everyone. I used the O.P.I shade in Pink-ing of You, which is a soft candy pink, and the glitter is is also by O.P.I (the name has rubbed off on the bottle but I think it was part of Mariah Carey’s collection a few years ago).
I applied two coats of Pink-ing of You, and after it had dried I applied a thick layer of the pink glitter to my ring finger.

The Fifty Shades. I was inspired by the masquerade scene in the new movie Fifty Shades Darker
for this one! I really love how it turned out, and it’s a great way to add drama to your nails. For the base, I used Bordeaux by Essie and for the glitter I used MAC pigment in Reflects Blackened Red.
I applied two coats of Bordeaux and while the second layer was still wet, I sprinkled Reflects Blackened Red all over each nail. I applied the pigment with a heavy hand so if you want a subtle look just apply less glitter. I kept the base colour and pigment similar in colour, so even if you miss a spot it won’t be noticeable.

I absolutely love how these looks turned out and I hope you enjoyed them too! Let me know in the comments below what you’ll be doing for Valentine’s Day!
