Love in the Air

Thursday, February 6, 2014

What does love mean to you? For me, love can come from any form so I decided to create a manicure dedicated to love. I went with a blue theme since that is my favorite color. This is also a collaboration with Brilliant Earth for their Create a Little Love Campaign. They specialize in ethically sourced diamonds and engagement rings.

Julie G, American Apparel, Nostalgic, Essie, Julep, OPI, Seche Vite

For my pinky, I have on Julie G Blueberry Fizz. For my ring, I have on American Apparel Neon Blue and then Nostalgic As If! on top. For my middle and pointer, I have on Essie Borrowed & Blue. For my pointer, I used Julep Amber to draw lines. Both nails have "love" drawn on it. For my thumb, I have OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise and I did a blue dotted gradient on the tip of the nail. Then I applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat on all my nails except for the pinky.

Yikes! The lighting recently has been all over the place so I'm going to try to fix that during my break next week. These didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it but I still wanted to share with everyone. What do you think of this love inspired manicure?

  1. Aw this is cute! I like how you didn't go with the traditional red colour. But the glitter on your ring finger is amazing!
