Valentine French or French Valentine

Yes, I know that Valentine's Day is over, but I am still rocking the V-Day manis!  You will have to put up with it for a couple more days! :)  Its all about continuing to spread the love! :)

I totally stole this pink and white French mani from one of my fellow bloggers.  I even told her that I would be stealing her idea...problem, I cannot for the love of me remember who!  Isn't that horrible?!?!  In all honesty I do visit a lot of blogs each day and it is hard to keep them all straight.  So if you read this and you know who your are: "Thanks for the idea and inspiration! You are a rockstar!" :)

I started with 3 coats of Essie Marshmallow.  This is officially my favorite white polish, even though it can be streaky.  (Hence, the 3 coats.) It is just such an awesome white.

 I had planned on taping to get a straight line so I added a coat of OTD.

I had some taping issues so I ended up free handing the French Tip. I used Julep Reese for the line. It's not perfect but unless you really look you can't tell.

My next step was to add some hearts.  All of the hearts were added using RA120 and Essence Ultimate Pink.

Finished the design with 2 coats of OTD.

I love the soft, simpleness of this design.  I can't seem to stop staring at it.  Can I call off work for nail distraction?
