Valentine's Day Nails

I decided to deck out my nails out for Valentine’s Day by alternating a hot red and pink polish and doing something different with the thumb nail. I love a glitter polish layer over a white nail and was inspired by a lot of the Valentine’s Day candies out there (okay so the pink, red and white M&Ms, so cute and so yummy). Are you making your nails festive for Valentine’s Day?

    I have so many reds and pinks that I might need to do an ombre mani in those shades for Valentine’s Day! Or the touch of sparkle you did here is cute too! Too many options!

    ahh!! Your V-day nails are awesome! I love that you threw in the white sparkle thumb. I had hot pink on my nails, but it chipped like crazy so I took it off and haven’t had time to redo them. Sad.

    Love the colors!! I am a rock climber so unfortunately my nice manicured nails don’t last very long. I’ll have to make an exception for this Valentines day though :)
