Valentine's Day Nails 2014

Hi everyone! Today's post is quiet normal, except for the fact that I've done my nails for Brilliant Earth's
Create a Little Love Campaign. Jaimie (from Brilliant Earth) contacted me and asked if I would do my nails with the incorporation of love. Perfect timing for me since Valentine's Day is coming up and I would've done something like this anyways :)

For my nails, I used all of my own polishes from my line (Beyond the Nail). I really love the nails I did last year, so I used the same heart design for my ring finger. I chose to do this overall design on my nails because it incorporates love & diamonds! When thinking of love, I think of it being something that grows and gets stronger as the time goes by. To show that off, I used a gradient effect on my nails - it goes from a lighter shade of pink to a light shade of red. I used rhinestones and the holographic glitter top coat to show off how love shines so brightly (& some people get diamonds to show that love off, haha).

Here's what I used:

I used two coats of BTN - Pastel Red on my ring finger. I then stamped over it with Bundle Monster - Stamping Plate BM-317 using a Konad polish in white. When dried, I put one coat of ELF - Clear (top coat).

For all my other nails, I sponged a gradient on them using BTN - Pastel Red & BTN - Pastel Pink. When dried, I put a coat of BTN - Holographic Microglitter Top Coat, then went over it with ELF - Clear (top coat). While still wet, I added a rhinestone to each nail!
