Day 5 - Valentine's Day Nails

Valentines Day isn't my favorite holiday but I do love reds and I do love trying something new :)

I have been wanting to try this design out for the longest time but never attempted it because my nails were quite stained and this designed required me to show off a whole lot of nail. Since my nails are much better than before I thought this was the best time to pull this look off!


I wanted to do somthing different from the pin. Instead of having it all in the same color family I decided to go for contrast! I did this manicure with striping tape instead of regular scotch tape as in the pin but I think it turned out fairly good with this color combination.


I used OPI Big Apple Red and Goldeneye and topped it off with my quick dry top coat from essence. Bad move!

Can you see it in the photo below?


How about now?


Something went funky with my top coat and I got this dark stripe of red on my middle finger. Just the middle finger even though I used the same topcoat on all my nails :S It is apparent in some photos but not others too. LOL. 


Owh wells, I still like the overall effect very much. Gold and red is definitely a winning combination in my books!
