Valentine's Day Nails!

Hello!!! Happy Valentine's Day, one day early!

Okay, here is my REAL Valentine's Day manicure! I wanted to spice up these pictures, so I posed with some of my girliest things! First, my cell phone case, which is covered in pink and white pearls, flowers, and bows. Second, my Nintendo DS case, which I blinged to hell and LOVE!!! Note the nail polish bottle cabochon on my DS! I'm really into pink and white, and jewels and pearls, so now maybe you can see why I love Valentine's Day so much!

After my manicure debacle yesterday, I decided to keep things more simple and chic. I started with three coats of Zoya - Bela. It started out sooooo sheer, but built up really nicely with each coat! It's a very sweet pastel pink, perfect for everyday wear. It's definitely still on the sheer side, but creamy.

As an added bit of trivia, I can tell you that Bela is "featured" in the movie "Black Swan." In one of the dressing room scenes, Nina has a bottle of Bela on her makeup counter. Just a little movie/nail polish trivia! Have you seen it yet? I loved the movie. There is one fingernail-related scene that almost made me throw up. If you've seen it, you know what I'm talking about!

Anywho, I have to get back on track here. After Bela I added red hearts from Nicole by OPI - Have a Heart. I couldn't bring myself to open the $1 Target purple hearts polish again because the smell is so overwhelming. DEFINITELY not the most eco-friendly polish, I'm sure. And the pink hearts in the LA Splash polish had too much glitter, so I stuck with red for this look, and I really love it! I did three diagonal hearts on my ring and pointer fingers, then one heart facing out on my other fingers, including the thumb.

The only thing I don't like is that using a toothpick scraped off a little of the color on the hearts. You may be able to see in the pictures that they have little silver marks. I'm not sure how I could have avoided that, though.

In personal news, my boyfriend and I couldn't wait until the actual day to exchange gifts, so we did so last night. He got me a new LaLaLoopsy!!! Blossom Flowerpot! I'm so happy. I was freaking out. I love these dolls. I guess it's the part of me that isn't ready to let go of being a kid. I don't care; I just think they're so cute! I got BF a translucent green Swiss Army Knife, engraved with a special message. Then I was at Target and saw a really cute picture frame related to my nickname for him, so I picked that up and put in a picture of us from our trip to Key West. I like to do cheesy things like that for Valentine's Day.

What are you doing tomorrow? Any plans? Thanks for reading, and please follow!


  1. I'm not into super girly things, but your cell phone case IS SO COOL! I love flowers so maybe that's why I'm so in love with it. Ahhh, I want it!
