Happy Valentine's Day!
Today I have a super cute and extra pink mani that I created for this occasion. It's been a long time since I last created such tacky designs but this came out adorable and I enjoyed creating it, so I really hope you'll like it too!

I chose two sweet pinks from my stash - El Corazon Fenechka № 423/129 (a baby pink creme with black and white matte hex glitter) and Barry M Dragon Fruit (a sweet pink creme with a bit of shimmer to it).
For this design I used the stamping decal technique to create this colored stamped design (check the Tutorial I made a while back to see how it's done). 
When creating the decals I actually skipped the top coat part (see step 5 in the tutorial) and I stamped the design right over the nail, on a tacky (sticky, but not wet) nail polish. It transferred nicely and I didn't have these messy lumps on the nail that you might get when applying a stamping decal as a tiny sheet, so I was pretty pleased with it. I wanted to add a glossy finish to the stamped design, but I was so afraid that the top coat will smear it, so I basically poured the top coat over it lol. Lucky for me it helped and I got this crisp image and a super shiny finish. Phew!

Nail polish I used for this nail art:
El Corazon Fenechka № 423/129 (2 coats, 1 top coat)
Barry M Dragon Fruit (2 coats, 1 top coat)
Konad Black for stamping, Konad White & Barry M Pomegranat to fill the image
Poshe Top Coat
Cheeky CH53 stamping plate

So I hope you liked this design, I would love to hear what you think of it. 
What's on your nails for V-Day?
