Polish of the Week: Valentine’s Day Nails

I’m really stoked about how my nails turned out last night while I was slightly tipsy, in the dark last and….I hate to admit this, but I was intermittently getting up to cook dinner.

Also, I don’t think I’ve attempted to do nail art successfully since my days waiting for appointments during beauty school.

I don’t know why I’ve been so resistant to getting them. I guess I’ve always hated the idea of an extra step and I don’t like the idea of having oily fingers. But I did it, and it worked, and I’m a happy cookie.

gargantuan green grape-all laquered upThe mint color is OPI’s Gargantuan Green Grape (NL B44)and the slightly wonky heart is one of my favorites: All Laquered Up (NL A32) which I think may be discontinued . I also used Nicole by OPI’s Drying Drops. The bottle says your nails should be completely dry after 5 minutes and mine were slightly tacky, but all-in-all it worked really well.

I also realize this probably sounds like a promoted post, but it isn’t. OPI is pretty much the only polish I’ve bought for the better part of the last decade so it’s almost all I have.
