Twinsie Tuesday - Valentine's Day Inspired

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!!

This week's Twinsie Tuesday challenge is to do a Valentine's Day inspired manicure.  I wanted to do something fancy and interesting.  I decided to use Essence Applause, Applause because it's the perfect red creme for Valentine's Day (in my opinion).  I then used a silver nail art brush to create the design.

The mani didn't turn out exactly like I saw it in my head, but it works.  As you can see, I attempted a heart on my ring finger.  It was hard just drawing that little heart, so I decided to keep it as an accent.

I also attempted a heart on my thumb.

I like the idea of this design in theory, but I need more practice with these types of designs.

What do you guys think?  Will you be doing anything special on your nails for Valentine's Day?
