Holland Valentine

Update: I have heard from the 3 winners of my first giveaway and their prizes will be sent out today. 
Thank you all for participating!  I hope that everyone will continue to be followers of my blog and enjoy my future posts!  Happy Valentine's Day!

I am on the fence about this design.  I love the colors but the design looked better in my head than on my nails. 
Warning -- The colors in these pictures are not accurate.  Due to improper lighting the colors are muted and lacking certain colors.  They look much different in real life!

First, I applied 2 coats of OPI Pedal Faster Suzi.  I think this is my favorite pink.  I love the pink pastel with silver microglitter (I promise it is not purple, as shown on my fingers!). On my accent finger I applied 2 coats of OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips. This is such a bright pink.  At first I was worried that it would be too bright but I love how it looks on my nails.  It was a little streaky.  Has anyone else noticed this?






Next I went back and applied the opposite colors using BM 11 and 209. KMOMT stamped perfectly and didn't lose any of its brightness. PFS did not stamp as well.  It turned out to be way too light and didn't really show.



I topped off the design with 1 coat of OTD.




The sun finally came out and I was able to get some better pictures.
