Monochromatic Valentine Nails

Here is an easy nail style perfect for Valentine's Day.


I used Lovie Dovie (a lovely pale pink), Watermelon (a juicy pink), and A Cut Above (a pink glitter), all by Essie.


On tin foil, I added white drops to each color to get a paler version of that shade, then painted each of my finger nails a different color. For my thumb, I added glitter over Watermelon.  Easy and fun.

    1. Thank you, lady! The layout was about a 6-hr work in process. Thank goodness for early morning snow days. Speaking of snow, how are you liking your new digs?

    2. You're welcome! You inspire me to redo my own layout and attempt to get all my back entries posted.
      I like Seattle, it's lonely cause I don't really know anyone but I like it. You get use to the grey skies after a while but I sure can't wait for summer!

    1. Yes, definitely try Target. Walmart also carries Essie, and Rite Aid will often have the new collections.

  4. This is honestly the first monochromatic nail polish style I've seen that didn't look like a middle schoolers nail polish to me. You are brilliant! I'm definitely following you!
