The Valentine's Day blehhh

Good morning!

So today's mani did NOT turn out like I had hoped -_- I was working on another Valentine's Day one and it just didn't look anything like it did in my head :( BUT I shall show you all anyways!  It's not particularly bad just not what I wanted.

I saw THIS picture from Google it's from the awesome Leslie of Polish Art Addiction and wanted to do something like it... except it didn't go that way ;)  But take a look!! :) 

Colors used:
- Layla Jade Groove
- Lime Crime Crema de Limon
- Lime Crime Parfait Day
- Lime Crime Lavendairy
- Maybelline Color Show Green With Envy
- NYC Matte Me Crazy

As you can see I was attempting to do a candy heart mani lol! I tried to do the writing too but that failed epically bad! And can someone please tell me why on earth I would mattify the beautifulness that is Layla Jade Groove? Because I'm not very sure why I would do such a thing -_- I suppose going for the whole chalky candy heart look is why but still a Layla holo should NEVER be mattified! Also Maybelline Green With Envy is just too close a color to Layla Jade Groove so you can barely see it...

Welp not every mani can turn out like I want but I will always show them to you guys here no matter how bad ;) And they don't always turn out bad, just not what I expected... sometimes they turn out even better :) 

So what do you guys think? I've got another Valentine's Day mani in the works for you all :)

  1. I think it looks great. I wish I did more nail art. Hell I wish I did more mani's

  2. I like it, I think it looks like candy ;)

  3. I do not know why you are unhappy with them, because I like them very much

  4. I really like it. as far as i know, Leslie from polish art addiction stamped both the hearts and the text on them, I think you did an awesome job with freehanding those hears and do the text freehanded is just impossible. ;)

  5. i'm not so crazy about flowers or hearts on my nails (altought i sometimes surprise myself), but love color combo you used here :D

  6. You're crazy, this looks awesome! :o) I'm hungry for conversation hearts now! Such a cute mani.

  7. You nailed the candy colors & texture! But I do know what you mean by 'it ain't bad but it ain't good' lol

  8. I think it looks like candy hearts, it even has a 3D effect!!

  9. I really love it! The hearts are 3d and look great without little sayings on them

  10. So cute! The hearts look like you used puff paint!!!

  11. Oh my gosh, this is totally cute overload!! I love how the candy hearts are raised, so it looks 3D! :-)

  12. I actually like yours even better. I think it came out really cute.
