ABC Nail Challenge: Letter F

Hey Everyone!! This is my second week doing the ABC Nail Challenge and I'm really having fun with it so far!! So this week is the letter F and I decided to go with a French manicure. I love French manicures because there are so many different looks you can create. I had a vision in my head of what I wanted my nails to look like, and then I got a little carried away... But this is what I finally came up with.

The camera made the rhinestones look mushed together & the two white dots on the tips of my ring and middle finger must be from the camera too! 


I used 2 coats of Social Ladder by Sinful Colors as my base, it's a pretty pinkish/pearl shade. Then for the tips I used a basic black and a silver striping polish for the glitter.  I used a heart image from one of the stamping plates that came in the  As Seen On TV Salon Express Stamping Kit I bought last year. I did a full review on it here if you're interested. I've only tried stamping twice because I'm really horrible at it! That explains the lopsided heart on my ring finger lol, but I really didn't want to start all over again. I used a few rhinestones to give it a Happy Valentines Day touch then topped it off with some SV.



I'm pretty pleased with how they came out, like I said before the pictures make them look a bit sloppy. Anyway, I had fun putting this mani together and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's nails this week. 

Happy Valentines Day Lovies!!!!

  11. Looks great! The heart stamping looks just fine too :))Stamping can be hard at first but when you get used to doing it, it's actually pretty quick and easy way to do some nail art.
