Valentine's Day Nails


Valentine's Day NailsI have had such trouble trying to photograph my nails for this post today, in fact it was a nightmare. This was the best I could achieve, therefore I decided to add little hearts to distract you away from it a tad.

Here are my valentine’s nails; they look a lot better in the flesh I have to say. I'm slating my evenings work here but the main reason why I wanted to show you these is to highlight where I found the inspiration from. 

I found a picture on Pinterest of probably one of my all time favourite nail designs. The design is by Rina Alcantara, check out the site as it amazing!

Seeing as my nails are short (but growing) I did not complete the pattern on each nail as it just wouldn't have looked right in my opinion. It was my first attempt too at this design but once my nails are longer I'm having another go as I adore the design.

The colours I used for this design were all by Barry M, with my choices being 'strawberry, bright pink, fuchsia and matt white'.

  9. Nothing wrong with the photograph, the lighting is great and the focus is sharp! I must say you have a very steady hand for nail art. The design looks so even and proportionate.
