HOW TO: VALENTINE'S DAY NAILS

Wednesday, February 11, 2015


Today, I am sharing my Valentine's day dotticure mani. I thought I would share because it is fairly simple to do. Sometimes the easiest things seem complicated when there are no step by step directions. I really love this mani as the colors you choose will change it's look completely. Depending on the season or holiday you can have a completely new mani. Inspired by Nailstorming as usual, I did it with blue as well and loved how it came out. I also did it with different shades of pinks for breast cancer awareness but only posted on my Instagram, be sure to use #VeroSaysNails to see my other manicure's. Lastly, I am using only pink polishes this month, use #PinkNailsEveryday to join me in the fun!

Yesterday, I shared my Top 9 Inexpensive Date Ideas for you and your hunny or for you and your friends, I also included some ideas from some anonymous friends, let me know what you think of those. 

On to the Valentine's day inspired Gradient Dotticure: 
Pick the colors you'll want to use for the design, I used 4 different shades of pink and then a white polish. I used my dotting tools but you can also use a toothpick or bobby pin. You'll need a working space, I have been using this lid from an old box for all of my manis, they eventually dry and you can add polish right over it. 



Start off with a clear base, I use Essie's All in one. Start off with the two darkest polishes and add big dots randomly across the tip of you nail, switching to smaller dots towards the cuticle side of the nail.


Do the same with the last three polishes, randomly adding dots until you achieve your desired look. I overlap some colors because I like the way it looks. Add a shiny fast drying top coat to finish off the mani. Right now I am using Julie G's Jet Set. 




These are my essentials for this mani, I have also been loving the Cuticle Glaze by LowCountryLacquer, to treat my cuticles, it smells really good and keeps them hydrated.

So, what did you think? I would love to see your recreations, or what you'll be rocking this Valentine's day. Be sure to tag me on socks media so I could see!
