I wanted to create a sensual and amorous manicure for Valentine's Day. I did a warm tone on tone look with red, copper, and gold. I had a romantic afternoon yesterday, so I was feeling inspired.
From plate T10, I stamped the tattoo design with a franken, combining Konad gold special polish with China Glaze 2030. I added dried flowers to each nail and embellished the centers with rhinestones. The flowers I chose are bright pink, but the rich background in union with the translucent petals makes them appear red. Adjacent to the moons of my nails, I placed copper and gold gems along with yellow and peach pearls.
A vampy burgundy, Sateen resembles the color of spilled wine. I painted three coats of the jelly formula for even, opaque coverage. This polish dries quickly and has amazing gloss. Sateen displays the kind of depth and finish that makes the surface seem wet hours after the manicure has cured.
As much as I enjoy experimenting with designs, it was pleasurable to create something that wholly fits me and expresses who I am. I love vampy shades. Pairing a deep burgundy with natural flowers, jewels and golden swirls felt right.
