Greetings, dear readers, and happy Monday! I has been a rough few days around the house as both my husband and I have been sick and trying to keep our energetic little boys entertained while being exhausted. I'm currently at home trying to get some extra rest in the hopes that I am well enough to go into work tomorrow. Until then, how about some Valentine's-inspired nail art?
I have been wanting to do something fun with the Zoya Kisses jelly nail polishes, and this was the perfect opportunity to play around with them!
I started off with a coat of Zoya Libby, a buildable, milky lavender jelly shade. I then added a layer of Zoya Leia, a fleck-filled sheer opalescent polish that Zoya suggests using to layer with the Kisses jelly polishes. I sealed my base colours in with top coat for a strong and shiny finish. Since I had other decorative plans for my look, I opted to then layer on another coat of Libby over Leia, creating a subdued flecked jelly sandwich. To complete the look, I wanted to play with more textures, so I created my hearts using Zoya PixieDust polish in Arabella.
While I'm not really loving Libby against my skintone, I do love the look of this design! As much as I like the sparkle of Leia, I really like the subtle effect it creates when used in a jelly sandwich.
I was a little unsure of going with a textured PixieDust when I first created this design, but I am so glad I did!
I really enjoyed creating this simple nail art design for Valentine's Day! I have another design in mind, although I'm not sure that I'll be feeling up to creating it if this sickness doesn't pass soon.
Have you created your Valentine's Day nail art look yet? What do you have in mind? I'd love to hear from you!
Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
