Holo Valentine

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
