Easy Valentine's day nail art tutorial
Since taking the photos for this manicure I've seen it around quite a bit! I thought I'd share it anyway, because it's really cute, simple, and easy if you haven't got a very steady hand!

To do this I used Nails Inc. St James, which is a really lovely, bold red. In the bottle it has a tiny bit of shimmer, but this doesn't transfer onto the nails much at all. The formula is great, it dries quickly and doesn't chip too easily which is a bonus if you're clumsy like me! The pink I used was just a light, shimmery pink I had in a gift set for Christmas, but this Mavala one looks really similar.

This manicure was really easy to achieve. Once I'd painted on the pink base and let it dry, I used the red polish to create a semi-circle shape on the top corner of my nail. I found it easier to do this in one, quick swooping movement. I then did exactly the same movement on the other side to create a shape that looks like the top of a heart. I sealed it with a top coat and that was it!

I think this looks really pretty without being too over the top and cutesy. I also think this is really wearable all year round, and I'll definitely be doing it again some time soon!
