Love letters for Valentine

Hi everyone!

As promised my Valentine's manicure in a quick post:

indoors, no flash

This is two thin coats of Catrice Ultimate Nudes 01 Karl Says Très Chic on my thumb, index and pinky. I really like KSTC as it's not a candy colored pink but a more dusty color that looks a bit more mature to me and it's an amazing stamper as well. Not bad for a cheap drugstore brand, right? :)

My middle and ring finger were done in two coats of OPI Let's Be Friends!, the most amazing pale pink that isn't off white but still pink. After that had dried I stamped the hearts using KSTC and MoYou London Princess 11, waited until that dried and stamped the scribbles from the same plate using Hit The Bottle As Black As Night. Last but not least a coat of Seche Vite (that I put on too soon so my middle finger is smudged a bit) and I was ready for dinner with my Valentine.

The contributors to my manicure:
OPI Let's Be Friends!, Catrice Ultimate Nudes 01 Karl Says Très Chic, Hit The Bottle As Black As Night

I was inspired by a manicure I saw online somewhere but unfortunately I can't find it anymore.
If you happen to know who did a manicure like this (or if it was you) please let me know so I can give proper credit!

I'm off to hang on the couch for an episode of Gotham with a mug of tea and some chocolate... wishing you a great week and take care!

Hit The Bottle As Black As Night was bought from Hypnotic Polish.

  3. So pretty!! <3 Love it! :D

  4. Beautiful! I love that for you Catrice is a cheap drugstore polish ... for me, it's a hard to get foreign brand. :)

    1. Thank you!
      Hehe, I feel the same way when I see your display posts with Zoya and OPI (even though I know those aren't cheap and definitely not drug store, but I would love to be able to just go to a store and get them instead of searching online for someone who ships to Europe ;)


Please let me know what you think. I may not reply right away but I will get back to you in the end... promised!
