Valentine's Day - Matte about it

Saturday, February 9, 2013

I decided to do a Valentine's Day mani to enter for a contest Barielle is holding. While I don't like the "like to win" contests I do like to enter to challenge myself.

I decided to try something different for me and do a matte base. I actually like it and it dried quicker than I thought it would. I used Barielle Lindsay's Dancin' which is a vibrant shimmery red. Then I applied Butter London Matte top coat.

I made gold hearts with a dotting tool and a MASH Nail art brush. Then I made smaller hearts inside the gold hearts with Lindsay's Dancin'. I added some white dots with Barielle Young 'n In Love.

Valentine's Day is the day my husband proposed to me. Oh my, it is hard to believe it will be 28 years in just a few days. So hearts were fitting. What are you going to put on your nails for Valentine's Day?


  1. This is gorgeous! And congrats on 28 years!! :)

  2. Happy Anniversary! I really like this. This may be my Valentine's mani. What is the color you used for the larger/outer heart?

    1. For the gold, outer heart I used Barielle Gold Digger. Thanks! I would love to see it when you finish it!

  3. Gorgeous mani and Congratulations on 28 years! Gotta get me some matte.
