Valentine's Day mani


Hello, Loves! I have a rather girly manicure this week for Valentine's Day. My fiancé and I don't do much for Valentine's Day like we used to. For fun we may use it as an excuse to go out for dinner during the weekend :)
Do any of you have plans for Valentine's Day?


I received a generous amount of Serum No. 5 polishes from Victoria (You can visit her etsy shop here) and I thought Pretty In Pastel was a great choice to wear this week! It's a gorgeous sheer shimmer with pastel glitters. Since the polish was sheer, I applied Pretty in Pastel over OPI's Steady As She Rose. I added round silver stud rhinestones I received from Born Pretty Store in the shape of hearts. I love the design possibilities that can be created with the studs!



If you're interested in getting studs for yourself, you can get a bag of them for $5.86 and can use the code ASL91 for 10% off your purchase. Born Pretty Store also offers free shipping worldwide, so it's a great place to shop.



I hope you all have a week full of love!
