Valentine Mix 'n Match

Hi all!

Here's a fun Valentine-y mix 'n match manicure that I wore over the weekend!


On my index and pinky I added two coats of the gorgeous Essie Leading Lady, then using a small dotting tool I added the hearts using Orly Glow.  My ring finger is Gosh Deep Purple and using a small dotting tool again, I placed medium sized loose glitter in the shape of a heart.  I tried to get these uniform in spacing but quickly gave up on that idea :P


On my middle finger I have Orly Glow and created (or at least tried to) heart shaped leopard print using Leading Lady and Wet 'n Wild Night Prowl as the outline for the spots.

What do you all think?  Too early to be thinking about Valentine's day? The tradition in this household is to NOT spend valentine's day together.  Okay, I'm partly kidding but it kind of is a tradition even though it's not by choice..  Chris has always been at sea and this year is no exception.  Doesn't mean I won't indulge in cute valentine-y things though :)

  1. This is so cute! I love the colors you used - is that a navy on your ring finger? Or purple? Either way, I like it paired with the traditional Valentine's Day colors!

    1. I was afraid that the heart leopard spots wouldn't really translate as hearts! I just sent a little valentine care package to Chris' ship this morning, here's hoping it gets there in time :)

  7. Heart-shaped leopard print! Very unique!!
    We don't celebrate Valentine's Day either, it's more a day for singles and first dates I think!
