I am back with my second Valentine design!
I have to say that about half way through this design I started to worry. I wasn't feeling the design and figured I was just going to have to chuck it and start over. Then I remembered that one simple technique can fix almost any manicure.
I started with two coats of Polish My Life Stripped. This was my first time using this polish and I was very impressed. It applied perfectly in two coats.
I decided to try stamping with some holos. I used Smitten Polish Her Name Was Rose and heart vines from PUEEN33. I used A Rhyming Dictionary A Stupendous Man and the hearts image from MASH54. This is were I thought things when bad. The stamping is good, but it wasn't as jump off the nail as I wanted. And the heart image was too small for my thumb.
Instead of throwing out the design I used a technique that has saved my designs many times. DOTS! I used Her Name Was Rose and Milani Black Swift. To cover the missing hearts on my thumbs, I added some black hearts. I also added some images on my ring and thumb. They are from BMH16.
The dots and images saved this design! I went from hating it to LOVING it!
Happy Valentine's Day! xoxo
