Valentine's Day Mani

Good Morning all! I finally have the opportunity to post the first Valentine's Day manicure I've done for 2014. If all goes well, there will be another later but at least let me show you this one.

I started with a base of Sensationail Pink Chiffon because I was going to attempt to do some stamping. I wanted a base that I could easily clean off and the Sensationail Gel polish is great for that. A little non acetone polish remover can take off any errant stamping without removing the base polish. For the stamping, I used the Salon Express set for the heart design and Konad M57 for the lacy tips. I used the red Konad polish for the art because it was handy. I was rather pleased with how it came out. My previous attempts at stamping were not pretty. I don't know if I had more patience this time or because I was the only one home and had no distractions (hubby and boys were at a Monster Truck show). I'll admit, I did have to redo some of the nails until I was happy with the design. But all in all, I like the outcome and I will definitely do some more stamping in the future.
My plan is to remove the design this weekend and do another Valentine's Day manicure right over the Sensationail Gel because I've only had the gel on for 1 week and it's still in pretty good shape. I only have 2 small chips on my right thumb but those were my fault for trying to pry open a small jar with my thumb.
I do have some exciting (at least for me) new coming up and hope to post about it within the next few days. Please keep checking back. I have also linked this to my Facebook page so maybe I can expand my audience and possibly offer some giveaways in the future.
Until next time, Marian
