French Tip Hearts Valentine's Day Nail Art

To begin I used Rimmel Nail Tip Whitener to paint a French tip on my nails, then used Natrual Collection Peach Manicure and Collection 2000 Sparkle Top Coat over the top.

Next I used AFNB Stripe & Sparkle in Pattie to create wavy lines across my nails.

Then I used 3d pink hearts nail art stickers from around the lines I drew.

Next I went over everything with my top coat and then I added some light pink and dark pink rhinestones and some light pink and dark pink pearls around the hearts.

Hearts and Lace Valentine's Day Nail Art

First I applied a coat of Sex And The City Charlotte nail polish as my base colour. I then used Stargazer 232 polish with Konad plate m57 using the lace image and stamping it diagonally across the nails.

Then I used OPI Flower-To-Flower to fill in the top diagonal part of the nails.

I then used Nyx Grafitti over the bottom diagonal part of the nails and used AFNB Stripe & Sparkle Brooke along the edge of the pink polish.

Finally I added some silver holographic heart stickers onto the pink tips and sealed with a top coat.

Red and Silver Valentine's Day Nail Art

First I used Barry M Raspberry as my base coat, then added Stargazer number 148 on top.

Then I places 3d silver hearts and bows nail art stickers from around the nails.

Next, I used Illamasqua Harsh with a dotting tool to add dots around the stickers. I finally added some silver and red rhinestones randomly around the nails.

LOVE Statue Valentine's Day Nail Art

To begin I used Stargazer 233 as my base colour and added a couple of coats of a sheer light silver/grey polish (it doesn't have a name or number, it was from a nail polish set).

Next I used Sex And The City Samantha polish to lightly draw the letters and make sure my spacing was ok.

Then I filled the letters in with the same colour and finished with a clear top coat.

Lips/Kisses Valentine's Day Nail Art

To begin I used Barbara Daly polish in Sweetie with Stargazer number 111 over the top.

Next, I drew the outline of the lips with Barry M Raspberry, making a basic lip shape.

Then I filled the lips in slightly, feathering the colour into the middle.

Next, I used OPI Altar Ego to blend the colour in, making sure to keep a small space free in the middle of the lips. I went a bit too far in so I took some more of my base colour and erased any mistakes and also went around the outside of the lips to tidy the lines up a bit. I did the same thing for the second pair of lips but with different colours - China Glaze Rich & Famous and China Glaze Second Hand Silk.

Finally I used OPI Flower-To-Flower with Bundle Monster plate BM02 to show what the kiss image looks like compared to the drawn on images.
