Hey did you see that nailpolishcanada.com is doing another nail contest? 😀 The last one I entered was for the holiday season… this one is for v-day, of course! Nail Polish Canada offers up some wicked prizes so if you are in the U.S. or Canada you should hurry up and check it out (ends on feb 10th 2014)! A big reason I love entering these contests is cuz it’s so fun to link up with others in the nail art community. Everyone comes up with such cool designs! Wanna see mine??
The idea for this mani was sparked by my fellow blogger Blimbo247. She thought my China Glaze border mani from last week made my pointy nails look like little shields. She was right! I really liked that concept and it inspired me to come up with this valentines version of a border manicure. Behold my little love shields! It’s a very simple design… no crazy nail art this time. But sometimes a simple mani can have just as much wow factor as a complicated one! All I used was Nicole by OPI Be Ama-zing (rich pink) and a black striper by L.A. Colors.
You should go check out all the other ladies’ awesome valentines nails and vote for your favorite. If you’d like to cast a vote for my little shields that would be mighty kind of you. 😉 Here’s the contest gallery link: VDAY NAIL CONTEST. The voting ballot is at the bottom of the page… just enter your first name, your email (they won’t spam you), and then select your fave nails from the list. Thanks y’all and happy valentines day! xoxo Craftynail xoxo
