Essie Valentine's Nails

Looking around the shops at the moment, it's hard not to notice that Valentine's Day is coming up. All those reds and pinks in the windows reminding us to spread a bit of love. There's a bit of a debate about the day - I personally love it. It's nice seeing people with their bunches of flowers heading out on dates to spend a bit of quality time together. Yes, it can seem a little forced but if you just look at it as a reminder to make some time for someone special - well, that can't really be negative, can it? 

I'll probably be wearing  a red lip (any excuse!) and I've dressed my nails for the occasion... 

Using all Essie shades I've put together a little Valentine's Nails look. 


On my index finger I have Lapis of Luxury followed by In My Orbit 
from the galaxy metals collection  with a little pink heart carefully painted (with my right hand -I'm left handed so that is trickier than it sounds!) using a nail art pen. 
On my ring finger is Baguette Me Not which is one of my favourites at the moment and I'll no doubt be wearing a lot more in the Spring. Muchi, Muchi is on my little finger and did need a good 3 coats but I like it's subtlety, it's a really nice pale pink for every day.

I added the polka dots with the end of a hair pin, it's a little hack of mine -dots with minimal effort!

I actually find painting my nails very therapeutic. I might have to find time to get a little more creative more often.
