The Nail Files: Don't Go Chipping My Hearts


The Nail Files Link Up


As we all know, Valentine's Day is on Thursday of next week (before The Nail Files), so I thought I'd share a Valentine's manicure for this week's Nail Files. Since I'm not a fan of the colour red, V-Day manis pose a bit of a challenge but I was up to the task. I'm quite into the ombré fad at the moment so I figured I could do a pink/purple combo and then go from there. A new sparkly polish caught my eye, and the rest came together nicely after that.


Here's what I used:




And here's the mani:


Two coats of everything. Starting with my pinky there's Renee, Don't You Lilac It?, Creative Fantasy, Bizarre Blurple, and Flying Dragon. Then, with a medium dotting tool, I put white hearts in the top left corners of each nail by making a "v" shaped movement (white polish was Finger Paints' Paper Mâché). To finish it off, I put Inner Sparkle on the bottom third.


I'm not going to lie, guys...this may be my favourite mani EVER! I freaking love the ombré fade and the little hearts are too cute for life! Inner Sparkle is my first Nicole by OPI polish and it's effing beautiful! Little gold sparkles, slightly larger lilac sparkles and then bigger rose-coloured hexagons. It had great coverage, too! I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this brand from now on! 


Hope everyone has a great weekend and awesome Valentine's Day!!
