Blue Valentine

Hey Everyone! I am having a very cranky day today. I am also getting a headache. Sadly I have no pictures of Bruce or any of the furbabies today. I wish I did because they are so cute. I do have another Valentine's Day mani for you today.

I decided to go a different route with the hearts and give them a nice blue background for this mani.
wnw teal slowly and see listening to blue reed PUEEN35


It is hard to tell but the blue is actually a gradient using Wet N Wild Teal Slowly and See and Listening to Blue Reed. I used a makeup sponge for this gradient and actually started with Teal Slowly and See as the base. I then sponged both colors on top. It didn't quite work out the way I intended but in person you can actually see the gradient a little more.


I then used black polish and PUEEN35 from the Pueen Love Elements collection to do the stamping.


I made stamping decals as my first attempt but I stamped with a blue Kleancolor polish and then filled in the hearts. They were really disastrous and I hated the way they came out so I decided to just save time and stamp in black. I think I needed to use a darker stamping color to make the decals work but I wasn't about to make them all again at that point.


I used CoverGirl Anti Freeze on top to give the mani some pretty sparkle. 


Anti Freeze did smear the stamping a little but only in some spots. It has a really odd consistency that is thick but runny at the same time. It is really pretty though.


This was a nice bright cheery mani and I almost left it on longer but decided I needed to do another Valentine's Day mani for tomorrow's post. 


I am not sure but I think we had to run out this evening and do some things so I am hoping I get home in time to both edit tomorrow's pictures and do another mani. I have a feeling I am going to have to miss one post this week though. 


That's all for now :)
