2 Valentine's Day looks

3 thin coats of Sally Girl Blink of Pink, freehand chevron with no-name Icing by Claire's neon pink, L.A Colors silver glitter stripe polish and a heart shaped crystal at the peak of the chevron. I probably should have added another coat of hot pink for the chevron as there are some bare spots.....meh.

The chevron I can do - but trying to make a decent symmetrical french tip free-hand is going to take alot of practice, so I try to stick to straight lines via diagonal french tips. When it comes to curved french tips I use french tip guides; but I still practice free hand french tips every once and a while. For this mani I started with 2 coats of Maybelline Mod Mauve, followed by Billie Chianti at the tips of my nails, I traced the line with Art Deco striping polish in hot pink and added a coat of TC.

I really like the first one - it looks neon without being too in your face.

I like both of these, but especially the second one - I have a weakness for french-tipped french tips!

Love the little heart crystal. Looks like a royal manicure. I love the combination of polishes for the second manicure. Like the stipes. If I only had some free edge!
