Valentines Day Mani, Nail Mail, and CVS Haul

The winner of the 100 followers giveaway got back to me. Congratulations Joanna! She has a blog, you can check it out here. Thanks for entering everybody! Remember I will have another giveaway in the near future!! Alright, so on to my Valentine's Day Mani!

I decided to give a gradient mani a try. I used Wet n Wild- Hannah Pinktana with Nicole by OPI- Step to the Beat of My Heart. Hannah Pinktana is a sheer pink jelly with micro prismatic glitter. It worked very well for a gradient mani. How have I not tried a gradient mani before? They're amazing! I used the Step to the Beat of My Heart a few times before. In my head I call it Justin Bieber Hearts haha. Before I had difficulty with it because the pointy ends of the hearts would stick up and catch on things and rip off. This time I waited for the polish to get tacky after I put Step to the Beat of my Heart on and then I used a toothpink to press the hearts in the polish. This way all of the edges were submerged in polish. I then topped it off with Seche Vite.

Without the flash.

I went to CVS and picked up some new polishes. I have seen pictures of the Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect line and have wanted them for a while. I picked up Dune and Sea. I have a job interview on Thursday so I figured Dune would be the perfect neutral. I picked up Sea because it was green!

CVS had the new Wet n Wild Spoiled line. I picked up Show Me the Money, Pet My Peacock, and Trust Fund Baby (Correction Tape dupe)

Shuffle the Deck, Ants in My Pants, Jewelry Heist, and I Gotta Confection to Make. Most of these glitters look like they are meant to be layered over a base color.

I then received some nail mail from Sherry from Happy Berry Naiad. This is Etude House- Bling Bling, and ORLY- Satin Society. I can't wait to try these!


  1. Great haul!! The bottle for Etude is beautiful!!!

  2. Your Valentine's mani is so cute! I think you did a great job with the gradient. I love your haul as well. Pretty much I want a good portion of the Wet N Wild Spoiled glitters that you got.
