Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you have a lovely day. No
major plans for me - I'm spending the day with my family and hoping I
can convince my husband to fire up the grill tonight. That man makes a
divine smoked chicken.
My mani for today is a simple one, but I love it!
I started with a base of Pink Gellac Lipstick Red. Lipstick red is a classic, blue toned red cream. It applies nicely and is opaque in two coats.
The accent nail is Pink Gellac Baby Pink. Baby pink is a light pink cream. It applies smoothly as well but I did feel it needed 3 coats to hide my stubborn VNL.
I then mixed a little bit of ArtsyFartsy Crafts Fuchsia holographic glitter with a few drops of my Pink Gellac Ultra Shine Top Coat and used a dotting tool to create little hearts. I love how it turned out. I also find it funny how some of my simplest designs get the most compliments. :) I know I talk about my ArtsyFartsy glitters a good bit, but I really do adore them. Seriously, nothing compares when you need a little bling but aren't in the mood for crystals!
Oh, and my hands match! Such a rare thing for me. Ok, they sort of match. The hearts on my left hand are done with ArstyFartsy Crafts Dark Red Holographic glitter. I started with this hand and decided it didn't stand out quite as much as I would like so I switched the glitter for my left hand. :)
Here's a closeup of my right hand. Poor Cinderella. She's so neglected. If she knew how to pose I might show her more often. lol
Overall, I'm still impressed by the Pink Gellac gel polishes. My only complaint is the brushes. They are a little stiffer than I prefer for a salon quality gel polish and I have run across several brushes that have a bristle out of place that I had to trim. It's a minor annoyance that is definitely overshadowed by a nice formula in my opinion, but I can't help but wonder why they don't use higher quality brushes. Anyway, I now have the full collection and will be working my way through them for you over the next few months. :) These are the gel polishes that are available through the Chickettes Boutique or on Amazon here.
