Valentines Hearts and Stripes

Hey There! This my 1st attempt at free-handing hearts and stripes. For the hearts, I started off with a dotting too (you can you a toothpick). Start by making two circular dots and a 'V' shape for the base of the heart. Slowly, draw out the heart until you're satisfied the shape. As for the stripes, I used a thin brush to draw vertical and horizontal lines. It's not perfect but  I hope you like what you see!

Valentine's Ombre Nails

Hi Guys, I was requested to do ombre nails. I thought I'd do white/pink/red to celebrate the upcoming holiday. I used the make-up sponge method.
  1. Cut the make-up sponge to fit your nail ( to avoid excess waste and mess)
  2. Paint on the white, pink, and red polish directly on the sponge, slightly overlapping each color.
  3. Sponge onto the nail. You want to press firmly to excrete the absorbed polish from the pores of the sponge.
 I love this look and hope you enjoy it as well. Love, Amy

Pink Polish with Gold Glitter

Hello There! This is a pink and gold glitter combo. I used Essie "Marathin" and OPI "Only Gold For Me". The OPI glitter polish was given to me as a gift and I begin experimenting with colors to pair it with. Most colors didn't work out until I notice a muted baby pink that sparked this look. I love this pairing and am comfortable enough to wear this to work. I got tons of compliments at work for this combo-even the CEO said it looked great! This look is subtle but still very classy. I'm obsessed with the glam simplicity of this!
