Valentine's Day Ruffle Manicure

February 14th is TOMORROW? Seriously? I feel like it was just Christmas? That shit is cray cray. Thankfully I got a head start on my Valentine's Day crafts and manis. I have only done one ruffle mani from the wonderfully fantastical Chalkboard Nails so I thought I'd whip up another for this holiday. I feel like unless your in love or out of love there are plenty of ways to celebrate or anti-celebrate Valentine's Day!

I started with one thick coat of my go to white, Sinful Snow Me White and then dotted with my Born Pretty Store dotting tool, the pink is China Glaze Dance Baby and the red China Glaze Hey Sailor. I was a bit distracted doing this downstairs with my pups and babe so it wasn't as neat as the first one but the colors are festive and I got a little smirk every time I looked at this.
I used two coats of Dance Baby on my index finger, then stamped the cupid image with Hey Sailor from plate m34. He came out better on my other hand but *gasp* I have an uber nubbin I was ashamed of sharing. I added a Born Pretty Store heart-shaped rhinestone and finito. I say Viva La Valentine's and Viva La Ruffle Mani!
