A sweet Valentine pair of polishes, Devotion and Desire by Chloe & Bella

It’s not too early to start thinking about your manis for Valentines Day. A brand new set of Valentine themed jelly and crelly based glitter polishes from Chloe & Bella will be available to order January 14, 2015. These are jam packed and so fun, whether you use them for an accent nail or a full on lovey dovey mani!

Devotion and Desire are the perfect glitters for your Valentine manis!

Devotion and Desire are the perfect glitters for your Valentine manis!

I recommend using a good gel like or glossy top coat on these. It really sets them off and gives them a glitter floating effect. First we have a sweetheart pink called Devotion.

Devotion is a cool pink crelly base with pink, white and silver glitters. Desire will dry slightly textured but if you use about two thin coats over white, it really makes the pink pop. I manually placed the hearts for this post, although you may not need to. I prefer to place larger glitters this way, then finish with a good topcoat that smooths out glitters, like Gelous.

Devotion is described as, "Devotion is a sweet pink shade that represents all of the loving feelings you share with your special Valentine every day of the year. Devotion starts with a lightly-tinted cool pink base and is filled with a shimmering gold spark and charming glitters. Glitters include: matte white hearts, holo silver hearts, and candy pink dots in various sizes."

And how sexy is this Desire?! 😉 It reminds me of lingerie!

Desire is full of red glitters in a black base. Desire will dry slightly textured and semi matte on the nail. I found two thin coats gave me full coverage and I did place the heart glitters manually since I was swatching for photos on this post. I found removal was easy considering the heavy glitter load. FYI: When I remove glitter polishes that are contrary, this not being one of them, a small cut square of felt is a lifesaver. You won't need it with this polish however. I used Gelous for a topcoat to smooth out the polish.

Nail art gems, when you want to bling it up a notch

You know, there are times when a girl has just got to add a little something to her mani. That’s why I love the convenience of nail art gems and addons. They take a pretty but plain manicure to pretty amazing in minutes. Today I wanted to share with you a cute collection of gems I received from Born Pretty store.

Pretty iridescent hearts for a mani with heart!

My method of application is pretty straight forward. For multiple small to medium gems, I first add a coat of topcoat then add on the pieces. I will have already determined where they should go. For singles as you see on the other fingers, I simply apply a dot of the clearcoat where the gem will go and using a pair of nail art tweezers apply the gem. Polish used for this pretty pink mani is called “My Heart Keeps Skipping” by Spell Polish, a wonderful indie brand you should check out! Heather’s polishes are amazing!

These nail art gems in two sizes of iridescent hearts are perfect for any romantic mani.
