Valentines Day Nail Art


My right hand

It seems as though I've been looking at nails, nail art and polish non stop here lately. Any of my free time I've dedicated to looking at nails. I've always been into nails but here lately I've become somewhat obsessed with nails.

So many ideas and designs have run through my mind. I have become inspired by so many nail artist and bloggers. I like the inspiration but at the same time I like to sort of make things my own. Pretty much be unique sort of speak. It's really hard to come up with original designs because with so many nail bloggers and nail artist some things I think of have already been done. For example, I'm a chocolate lover. So the other day I said hmmm I should do candy bar nails or a Twix or Mr. Goodbar inspiration nail. Well in my cruise through nail designs via google wouldn't you know I saw these already done. I didn't see Mr. Goodbar but pretty much the idea I had was already done.

Last night before going to bed I looked at a few nail videos on YouTube and had the idea of doing a bouquet of hearts(middle finger) . But my vision was to have the bouquet just to the side of the nail. Being I don't have the length for that nor a steady hand it covered the whole nail.

So this morning I decided to play around with different designs using my acrylic paints and maybe come up with a concept or two. I figured why not post to Instagram and blog what I've done. I'm still a work in progress and I'm anxious to get better at my hobby.

Here is another pic of my left hand.

Also I failed to mention I did this over an old mani of nude polish. Here is a pic of the previous mani that I blogged about the other day.

If you enjoy nail art, what inspires you to create? I'd love to know!



  1. Hello! I have a question, on your instagram you posted a mani with a color club halo hues polish and a finger paints polish, I for the life of me couldn't find the finger polishes name, could you please tell me? Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Kari. I'm actually behind schedule in posting that look to my blog. The color club polish name is "Holographic" and the Finger paints polish name is "He-Art Auction". I just got the finger paints this week fom Sally's. I believe it's new so it should still be there.
