NOTD: Valentine's Day

Such a tricky title, I know =D
How are you, guys? I've been staying at my cousin's for the last days, and I wasn't able to update. Actually I don't care about Valentine's Day at all, but I wanted to do a manicure anyway. It's a simple manicure but I like minimalism, as much as I like extravagance =D
I used Essie Sag Harbor and Essence You're The One. Essie Sag Harbor is a very pale, grey-leaning blue with hidden shimmer. Also it is a dupe for Eyeko Rain, China Glaze Sea Spray and also L'oreal High Tide (as Öykü stated); so if you own any, you don't need to buy any of the others. You're The One is a beautiful coral, and I'm sure there are a lot of dupes for it in my stash.
I stamped the diagonal stripes from an Essence Stampy plate on You're The One nails, and on my middle and index fingers I stamped letters from konad m17 and m18, to form the word "LOVE". On my pinky there is a little heart from plate m18. I also added some heart shaped rhinestones to complete the look.



Oh and I had a small accident, which involved a razor and three nails. Thankfully I haven't cut myself, but the nails were damaged and I had to cut them down. =/
Geez, I'm trying to grow these nails for almost a year now!

Çok kelime oyunlu bir başlık oldu gerçekten =P
Birkaç gündür kuzenimde kalıyordum, bu yüzden güncelleyemedim burayı. Aslında Sevgililer Günü zerre kadar sallamadığım bir gün, ama hadi eksik kalmayayım dedim ve bu manikürü yaptım =) Basit bir manikür ama bazen minimalist şeyleri de en az abartılı şeyleri sevdiğim kadar çok seviyorum =)
İki oje kullandım, Essie Sag Harbor ve Essence You're The One. Essie Sag Harbor griye bakan, uçuk bir mavi; çok hafif sedefli. Bu oje aynı zamana Eyeko Rain, China Glaze Sea Spray ve (Öykü'nün hatırlattığı gibi) L'Oreal High Tide'ın bire bir aynısı; bu yüzden eğer sizde bunlardan herhangi biri varsa diğer üçünü merak etmenize gerek yok. You're The One ise çok güzel bir mercan rengi, eminim bende en az üç dört tane alternatifi vardır ama şu an bakamadım...
Essence Stampy disklerinden birindeki verev çizgileri beyaz ile damgaladım, orta ve işaret parmaklarımın tırnaklarında konad m17 ve m18 diskindeki harflerle "LOVE" kelimesini oluşturdum. Serçe parmağımda m18 diskindeki küçük kalp var. Son olarak kalp şeklindeki kırmızı taşları ekledim.
Bu arada bir jiletin ve üç tırnağımın dahil olduğu ufak bir vukuat yaşadım. Çok şükür hiçbir yerim kesilmedi ama tırnaklarımın bir kısmı uçtuğu için kesmek zorunda kaldım =/ Ve ben neredeyse bir yıldır bu tırnakları uzatmaya çalışıyorum, ama belli bir boya geldiklerinde sürekli nazar değiyor!

  15. It's really weird, in your photos sag harbor looks a lot like mint apple from the same company instead of eyeko rain polish :D

    however, i find that red is awesome when mixed with light blue! it's an original mix and is seldom worn, especially for valentine manis.

    :)

    cheers, Fiorenza
