Valentine's Day Proposal

I was contacted by Brilliant Earth and was asked if I'd be interesting in doing a mani using the them of love for an upcoming Create a Little Love feature; thought it would be fun idea so agreed!  When sitting down to do the mani, I thought would be more appropriate for the theme than a romantic Valentine's Day proposal?  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales walls on three fingers; Duri Taming of the Shrew on pinky. (I can't recall the pink polish but I know it was a CND; will update later!).  After the white base had dried, did sponging on the same three fingers with the same red and pink accent colours.  Polish on the thumb wasn't the best but at this point, I wasn't worried; it worried as I had premade a stamper decal for it!

Added stamper decal on the thumb from an image on Infinity 07, and stamped using assortment of other image plates; MM03 (pinky), MoYou Landscape-01 (index and middle), Nailz Craze NC 04 (ring on ring) and Handy 57 (lettering on ring) using black and white Konad special polishes.

A closer look at MoYou Landscape Collection-01.

Nailz Craze NC04

Added random hearts using red and white Konad polishes using an image from SdP 78.

Topped with SV to finish.

Brilliant Earth will be doing a feature on the Create a Little Love highlighting various medias with a collage of various bloggers; I'll update the link here when I see it!

Thanks for looking!
