A girly mani...for Valentine's Day?

Hello everyone~ This  is the last of my scheduled posts ^^ As you're reading this, I'm probably scrambling around doing my last minute packing and hoping that my luggage doesn't weigh over 20kg :P And of course, already missing Hong Kong as well! That's right, I'm finally flying back to Australia. *teary eyes* Anyway!

This mani didn't go the way I had intended it to haha. Maybe it was the colours I used, but it turned out to be quite girly...not something I wear often. I guess this is sort of suitable for Valentine's Day? :P

I started off with two coats of Ulta3 lily white. My bottle is getting sooo thick and gluggy and no amount of thinner thins it out :(. I really need a new one so application won't be such a pain! Anyway. After that finally dried, I applied a thick coat of Glitter Gal Fuchsia and Black alternatively only my nails for the stripes. I used a nail art polish to add the thin silver glitter stripes.

I'm not really into celebrating Valentine's Day - I think it's just a good day for us consumers to be ripped off! A simple dinner is fine with me and plus, I don't need a day to especially show my love; I hope to do it all the time ^^ What are you doing with your loved one though? And are you one to wear girly manis? :)

Thanks for reading.

  2. I love this mani! It's girly without being too girly! And I agree with you about Valentine's! We just use it as an excuse to have a nice dinner :) Safe travels back to Aus.

  3. Hmm, which thinner do you use? I have the opposite problem - I thinned one of my Lily Whites too much and now it takes about 5 coats! (Yes, I have multiple backups of Lily White. Shaddup. :\ )
