14 Days of Valentine’s | Day 9 – Cloud Heart French Tips



Finished mani in artificial lighting


Hi guys! Today I’m back for day 9 of the 14 Days of Valentine’s! I know I said I was totally over hearts but I just couldn’t not pair Dear Darling by Lavish Polish with some pink neon! I will have a YouTube tutorial posted for this no tools look soon!

Polishes used from l to r: Shinespark Pumped Pink, Pipedream On The List, Lavish Dear Darling

First I began by laying down a base color of 2 coats of Dear Darling. This is one of my favorite all time nudes and for sure my favorite crelly, the formula is impeccable and I love how fun the neon glitters look suspended in the base! I once described it as “look at me, I’m a super classy nude, wear me to work!” But then up close it’s all “nah, I’m just kidding! I love to party!”

Next I used Pumped Pink by Shinespark Polish to paint the bow of a heart shape towards the tip of my nail. I did 2 coats to get the shape nice and rounded and opaque!

Next I used the cloud method and painted my next pink (On The List by Pipedream Polish) a little further down the heart shape. I only did one coat of this and then topcoated.

This is the final result:

  1. I am in love with this manicure, pun intended. 🙂 There is something about the pink polishes over the nude base that really speaks to me. And the heart shapes on the tips. Love it. ❤
