Valentines Day mani.

Good Morning.  You wanna know what I did yesterday?  I played Skyrim ALL DAY, no joke!  I had not planned on doing that, that's just kinda what!  I even showered hoping that we would get up and out of the house. : )

Anyways, lemme show you my Valentines Day type mani.  I didn't actually plan this around V-day, it just happened to be pink, and Valentines Day is about pink and red you know!

I just picked this color up the other day.  It's Sinful Colors Creme Pink.  First things first, I have never really liked Sinful Colors.  There is something about their jumbled displays that I always walk right on by.  Maybe it's just me and my weird OCD self, but I like when all the colors are kinda color coordinated, or all like colors near other like colors.  And I don't like the way the bottles look....they do nothing for the colors.  Anyways, I picked this and another one up.  And you know why?  Cause they were all on clearance, and they were all in bins with like!

You will notice that the bottle color is different then what my nails show.  In reality, my nails were the same color as the bottle, and the bottle was a wee bit darker still.  My camera sort of freaked out with this color.  I mean this is neon pink.  BUT!  Look at the gold shimmer!  Ahh, I LOVE gold shimmer!  And it really is evident on the nail.

And because I get bored really easily, I added a coat of OPI's I Lilly Love You, then added a top coat.  I didn't like the way the OPI looked with topcoat (ugg....stupid flakys don't lay flat!  I actually had to take tweezers and pull some of them off!), so I added a coat of Essie's Matte About You.  I now have a coat of base coat, 2 coats of the Sinful polish, a coat of SV, a coat of the OPI, another coat of SV, and now a coat of the matte top coat...whew!

Now it's time to take this off, so I can apply something work safe for tomorrow!


  1. love it! and lololololol @ Skyrim- that game is AMAZING

  2. So bad you could not wear this for work, I really really like the final result. Mattified glitter is just amazing! I think I did a mistake massing I Lilly Love you, right? x)

    I don't like Sinful Colors because that shrek color stained my nails sooo badly. x) I shouldn't judge all of them because of one color but I can't help myself. :) Well I must say I didn't see a color I'd really have to have until today, this is a really pretty pink. :) Gorgeous on you!

    1. I wish I could wear bright colors like this to work. And yes big mistake not picking up I Lily Love You, shame on you! Lol.

  3. I usually feel the same about Sinful Colors. And then, their bottle are too big. I usually do buy small polishes, I like them more 'cause they give me the idea that one day I'll use them up. I love changing color frequently, and I have so many polishes (and keep on buying them, to be honest LOL) that I still have not worn the same colour twice so far.
    The only "big" polishes I cannot do without are Zoya.
    Anyway, gorgeous mani!!! Sad you can't wear such colors at work...

  4. This is really pretty! I'm addicted to Matte About You over flakies!
