Floating hearts with a bit bling | valentines day

Hi lovelies, welcome back to my blog.
Today I'm sharing with you my very first valentines day design. I'm going to be honest and say I'm not one for celebrating cupids day but I do love a reason for pink nails ;) so I totally went pink crazy with a bit mermaid sparkles on top. Let's get into get into the details.

I first started by making gradient heart decals on my twinkledt glamour mat. I placed a what's up nails heart stencil on the mat and applied a light pink polish on the top and a darker pink on the bottom, then removing the vinyl right away. While the polish was still wet I sprinkled mermaid powder on top using my roubloff fan brush. I then allowed that to dry completely. Once dry I then added topcoat to the decals and left them to dry for around a half hour.
While that was drying I painted my nails using the same polish as the decals. I painted the thumb and middle finger in mac quick million which is a gorgeous gold glitter with pink hex glitter. Once the first layer dried I sponged on the rest for better opacity. I then painted the ring finger light pink and while the polish was wet I sprinkled mermaid powder on the nail then slightly rubbed it in once I was sure it wouldn't smudge. Lastly I painted the pointer and pinky in the dark pink. I then added fast dry topcoat to all nails.  Once the decals dried I added them to the middle finger and thumb and topcoat to protect the design.

Once the ring finger had dried I used some nail glue to attach this cute love charm that I got from aliexpress. To make sure it didn't budge I used some gel topcoat and filled any space i could see. Then dried in an led lamp for 30 seconds.

To finish and to add a little extra bling I added some circular gold studs to the pointer and pinky. I glued them on with the same technique as above. As you can see its truly a girly design and I love it.
