#WeekOfLoveChallenge - Sent With A Kiss

Hello, Fireflies!

Welcome to day 2 of the Week of Loooove Challenge. 

Or, as Celine Dion would say, 'Lurve'.

Today's challenge is kisses, and I made letters..sealed with a kiss.

There are two whites in my arsenal that I think are great as bases.  One, Cult Nails Tempest, is an *almost* one coat white, glossy.  I love it.  The other, Milani White On The Spot is really glossy, but takes two coats, at least. 

Milani White On The Spot

I was inspired by Nailstorming's letter design.  This is where having a different shaped nail can be interesting.  Her nails looked like envelopes.  Mine look like weird M's.

I made little hearts using a dotting tool and Nina Ultra Pro in Acai Berry. Love letters!

I wanted my kisses to have a little sparkle, so I used Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Pink Sprinkles.  It's a texture, too, but topcoat covers that.

Muah! Sealed with a kiss.

When my husband and I were first dating, we didn't have e-mail, so we sent a lot of letters.  Real paper-and-pen letters. Have you ever sent a love letter or a secret admirer letter?

  4. Oooh I did vday nail art today! I don't have a whole weeks worth though lol. Ah well...
    This is such a cute idea! I need to get a nice basic white like that Milani. It looks opaque and non streaky. Perfect base!

    1. You're smarter for doing one and keeping it all week! I have no life, lol. I like the Milani. If you can spring for the extra (or wait until there's a sale) nothing beats Cult Nails Tempest, though (and her 1-coat black, Nevermore).

    1. LOL! He would be the first to tell you, though, that he only has one lip, so his kiss marks would be lopsided.

Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
