Nail Art ~ Non Traditional Valentine’s Day Mani

Hi dear ladies! Happy Valentines/Galentines Day! I have been married for 17 years this year. Wow, that makes me feel exceptionally old. But after 17 years of marriage romance is rarely the first thing on your mind when Valentine’s Day rolls around. In fact I’m more focused on maybe an extra hour of sleep, or a nice hot soak in the tub. Our conversation is usually something more like this; Him: “Do you want anything for Valentine’s Day?” Me: “I don’t know, maybe some flowers but nothing big.” Him: “Okay.”

It’s not that I don’t love my husband, it’s quite the opposite. I just think a specific day to say “I love you” is fairly silly. I love hubby everyday, not just one day out of the year. So doing 2 Valentine’s Day manis this year was far more than my normal. And this one is very non traditional. The other one, which you will see in a couple days, is slightly more traditional. Slightly. It was for a challenge so it’s not to be revealed yet!

Drip Marble Nails with Reverse Image Stamping

I’ve been doing a lot of drip marbles lately and I’m just loving each and every one! Hopefully you aren’t tired of them yet. This mani started as a regular drip marble, but since I was so focused on the reverse image stamping I completely forgot about taking pictures beforehand. Can you believe that? Not my smartest moment, so unfortunately you’re just going to have to use your imagination.

For the marble I used four shades:

  • Dance Legend Spot it White
  • 6 Harts Mojave Jewel
  • Quixotic Polish The Alexandrite Effect
  • Joy Lacquer Pink Door

I then followed it up with the heart stamping from Uber Chic plate 6-01. I wish the stamping had come out a little cleaner, but redoing it just wasn’t an option.
