Fashion Magazine:Valentine's Day Inspired Nails

Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel Challenge 110

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. I usually keep my nails fairly simple with nudes, pinks, classic reds or black polish but this time I decided to mix it up.

This look is fairly simple to achieve. First up, prep your hands. I recommend a good moisturizer and cuticle oil to start. Clean off the excess oil on the nails with nail polish remover. Apply a base coat and leave to dry for a minute. Next, apply two coats of red and/or black polish. I chose to do one nail with black and the rest red. You could also do the reverse and have only one red nail. For an extra touch use gold glitter polish for either the tips or all over one or two nails. Finish with a top coat and you're done!

Products Used: Essie “Really Red”, Essie “Licorice” , Essie, “Rock at the top”, Essie “Gel Setter”.
