Awesome giveaways and valentines nails!
$1000 worth of AWESOME. Check this OUT!!!

Now for your main event of this morning (evening?)

First off we have me trying the technique to remove glitter nail polish from my Goobie Goober post using nail polish remover, cotton pads and foil. Except I didn't have any foil so I used cling-wrap! It didn't work as well because it was really hard to get the cling wrap to stick to itself because it was wet. Bleh.

Here's what I got, before:

Yay! Tape!

and after:
Hahahaha wrinkly!

Not too bad - though it would have worked much better with foil, it was still much less of a nightmare than usual! The remaining glitters came off really easily and felt kind of "melty" and floppy.

Now for my latest manicure - I wanted to give the Konad another go. Unfortunately I only have one plate so it's going to look a bit familiar.

I added some red diamantes and little diamante hearts to my thumbs.

Then I decided this was altogether way too boring and not valentines inspired at all.
So I kept going...

Much nicer! the girl at the shop yesterday almost had a tiny conniption when she saw them!
What do you think?

Man, I wish I could do nail art like that. I love those as valentine's nails, especially with the added red on the tips. Romantic with a dash of dark? Fabulous.

nope. I hardly ever get them out, and they honestly are two plates that are dupes of each other that came in a set

I can imagine how this would turn heads. It's an absolute scene-stealer.
