2015 Valentine's Day Challenge - Glitter Hearts

Hello everyone! I'm a day late with this post and I am so sorry. I had a family emergency and had to leave town abruptly and just got back in. My husband was unpacking the car while I was getting my nail stuff out. Priorities!


I chose to do some light pink glitter hearts over a dark grey flat color. Zoya Loredana is supposed to be a matte but it didn't look very matte today and I haven't unpacked my matte topcoats yet or I would have slapped that on.


The hearts were done using Color Club Foil Me Once, a fantastic light pink foil that is fairly opaque in one coat so it created a nice pink base for the glitter. OPI Teenage Dream was dabbed on the hearts.


I didn't use a top coat as I wanted Loredana to remain flat/matte and the hearts to stand out. Since I dabbed the polish, it's almost a 3-D effect. Ha!


The glitter is so beautiful and multidimensional but I couldn't quite capture it. I did lots of pics in full sunlight but it didn't quite work. You kind of get the idea though I hope!

Again, sorry I'm late on this one! Hopefully there will be no more emergencies.
