Digit-al Dozen DOES It Again; Day 6, Love and Heartbreak

Here it is Day 6 of the Digit-al Dozen challenges; if you are keeping track, I didn't do a Day 5 challenge simple due to time restraints so sorry about that.  This and the remaining posts you'll see over the next week are scheduled posts as I'm heading off on vacation.....I hope there are no glitches while I'm away as I'll have limited to nil internet access for the next days 10 days.  I will be sharing some pix of my holiday when I return (at some point) as well as sharing the mani I'll be wearing while away which will include a review of CND Vinylux...really excited to try this while I'm away as I know I won't have a spare minute to do my nails while I'm away!

It was kind of hard to get into some of the holiday themed mani's when they aren't in season and I found the Love and Heartbreak challenge a bit of a challenge.  I don't typically do lovey dovey type of mani's except around Valentine's Day...but I guess that's why it's called a challenge!  Here's what I came up with...not overboard by all means, but enough hearts that I hope I hit the theme!

Started with a base of two coats of Ruby Wing Mystic.  I had bought a few of these these colour changing polishes a while now but this was the first time I've tried them out so was interested to see how much they would change.

Decided to do a glitter gradient so added NYX Dark Red glitter.

Topped with p2 Glamorous Finish Holo Topcoat.

While I didn't mind this, it wasn't giving me the glitter factor I was going for, so added a little CrowsToes Morticia at tips.  This wasn't exactly what I was looking for either but at least added a little bit more interest.

Stamped using white Konad special polish using Big SdP W.

Topped with SV.

The next morning was a bright, sunny day so was able to see the colour change...wowzers!!  I was pretty impressed!

I find polishes like this pretty fascinating.  I think I bought three of these colour changing polishes but for sure, want to pick up a few more.  I also want to try some thermal polishes; hopefully soon!

Here's the other ladies Love and Heartbreak mani's!
