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



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.

You sure do have alot of patience :-) Great job even though the colors aren't exactly what you thought they would be. Pink is one of my favs :-)

I was really hoping for the wow factor, so I was quite disappointed. But I guess pink is always pretty regardless.

Awards. Proof that I'm awesome.
