I knew I wanted something that was girly for Valentine’s Day and this is what I came up with. I started with two coats of this extremely pink polish and then pulled out my stamping plates and put a heart on each nail and then finished off by adding quilting around the heart and rest of the nail. I used a straight pin at an angle to attempt straight looking stitches. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I’m sure someone has a tutorial out there which might have a super easy method for perfect stitches but I just came up with this and wanted to see if i could figure out how to get the look in my head. I think it’s time to invest in another brush to cut down to a tiny point. It seems to me a brush may work better. This is definitely not my best work but I do like it. It is very festive.
When I put the base color on I had the following conversation with my hubby:
Hubby: “Wow! That’s a really pretty color. What is it called?”
Me: “You think so? It’s called Pink Passion. I don’t know if I love it. It’s just so pink.”
H: “yeah, I really really like that color. It makes me happy just looking at it. Do you have a back up bottle?”
Me: “No. Wait, So you are saying you like Barbie pink?”
*We look around a while comparing pink things and determining that this isn’t quite Barbie pink.
*Hubby adds “Backup bottle of Pink Passion” to shopping list.
Long story short, Pink Passion by Caronia is Hubby approved. 🙂
I hope you guys like it.
