Two posts today! If you missed it, I've joined a Valentines' Day Week of Love Challenge, and my first post, Candy Heart Sayings, is already on the blog! Click HERE to see it.
This post is still Valentines' related.. sort of. I mean, we nail art folk do hearts on our nails all year long, but somehow it's V-day related if we do them this time of year.
So, a very un-Vday polish is the base of this nail art - Sally Hansen Sugar Shimmer in Sugar Cloud. These are the second generation of textured polishes from Sally Hansen, and I'm loving them! They added, uh, well, a shimmer. This one is blue with a pink shimmer.
My only complaint is how thin this polish is! The blue is washed out, and you can see right through it, even at 3 or 4 coats. Solution? French tip! I chose Color Club Wicker Park to compliment the shimmer in Sugar Cloud.
Using a white striper, I added a little heart on my accent nails.
On top, and a little smaller, so that the heart would have a white outline, I added a blue shimmery heart.
The shimmer comes alive with topcoat!
I wish that Sugar Cloud would retain its blue color instead of leaning grey. It's Sugar Cloud, not Storm Cloud, Sally.

Are you feeling heart nail art this week, or all year-round? or *gasp* never?!?
