Pastel Valentines

Hello! I’ve got a non-challenge mani for you today – I fancied doing some valentines nails that weren’t traditional colours.

What I used:

  • Barry M Frosted Cupcakes Blue Velvet (blue creme with flakies)
  • MoYou London Skin Silk (pale pink stamping polish)
  • Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink (bright pink creme)
  • Cheeky plate 15
  • Born Pretty Store clear stamper
  • HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat
  • Barry M Matte topcoat

I started with three coats of Blue Velvet, then stamped on the scribble hearts using Skin Silk. It barely showed over the blue, so I grabbed a nearby bright pink and stamped them again over the top. I wasn’t trying to line them up, but it seems like I accidentally did on my little finger! I finished off with a coat of G&G.

The next day, I decided to try it matted. Mattified? Not sure what the word is! I used Barry M matte topcoat.

I think it makes the flakies in Blue Velvet show up better, what do you think?

See you soon!
