Second of my three catch-up posts!
This one is for another Valentine's Day design, this time one that's my original design! ^^
Given the fact that my nails are still almond-shaped this year, heat tips were once again a must. Since my V-day design last year was so pale I decided to go with a darker red this time around for contrast. I really love deep reds like this (I used A List by Essie here) and it definitely fit well with the sheer white underneath.
This design is kind of a mash up of a few different things. As mentioned previously, the heart tips were semi-inspired by last year's valentines nails. The lipstick stains were inspired by my St. Patty's day nails from last year, and the "Love" nail was inspired by a super cute, simple design by @ane_li!
I wish I could have actually worn this design for Valentine's Day but I had an event to go to on the 12th (which I'll be talking about in detail in my next post) and didn't have access to my nail polish afterwards since I was in Vancouver. I still loved this design though and was happy I had the time to do it before my trip!
