Valentine's Day Nails!

Sorry about the late post, but I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day! I'm single, so I stayed home and watched the movies, Drive Me Crazy, Ever After, and Tristan + Isolde. I even got a movie, a nail polish, and cuticle cream from my parents. I tried to make cookies, but my cookie cookbook sucks! I've used it before and each time I follow the recipes to a tee but I always get dry/crumbly dough. It's never happened to me with other books. My mom, who is a great cook, has had the same problem. It worked after adding shortening (not listed in the recipe) and I finally got my heart sugar cookies yesterday! They're so yummy. But let's get to my Valentine's Day nails!

I almost wore red since I never do. I don't know, I'm just not a big fan of it on me. Instead, I went with Color Club Hot Like Lava, a bright and vivid hot pink foil. I love it! I don't wear pinks often, but this one is super pretty. I only needed two coats. I then layered one coat of OPI I Lily Love You, which is a sheer pink jelly base with flakes and glitter. I love the end result! It's very girly.

Pictures! This looks better in person, I think. Can I just say that I'm in love with the Burt's Bees Cuticle cream I got!? My cuticles look so much better. I want to try Lush Lemony Flutter, but this is great for the time being and cheap.

And here's one in the shade to show the flakes better. 

Like I said, I don't wear pink polish often. I like the color but I only have a couple in my stash. I think it's because I got bored of seeing a million of them. But I love this mani! Maybe I'll try more pinks in the future.


  1. How long have you been using the Burts Bees cuticle cream? Which one are you using? I NEED myself some cuticle cream!

    Btw, this mani was STUNNING!

    1. I've only been using it for a few days, but it's been good so far! Not just with my cuticles, but even dry skin around my nails. It's Lemon Butter, the only kind they have. Mine came from Target but I think it can be found in just about any drugstore. And thank you!

    2. Definitely gonna need to try this out! Thanks! Btw, I awarded you! Check it out and have fun!

  2. Any iodea about a good nail hardener?

    btw, it does look grt on your nails:)

    and I have an international giveaway on my blog

    1. I've been wearing Nail Aid Extreme Steel Hardener, but it's still too early for me to to tell how effective it is. So other than that, I really have no idea, sorry. But thank you!
